The 2005 Clos les Lunelles is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Inky/purple to the rim the stunningly flamboyant perfume offers up scents of black fruits spring flowers and crushed rocks. The wine hits the palate with unbelievable concentration full-bodied power beautifully integrated acidity tannin wood and alcohol a layered multidimensional mouthfeel and a finish that lasts for nearly 45 seconds. This superb achievement is a tour de force in winemaking. Drink it over the next 15+ years. From a 25-acre estate owned by Gerard and Chantal Perse (Michel Rolland is the consultant) it is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Yields were kept at a low 20 hectoliters per hectare which is unheard of for such a humble appellation as well as terroir.

Shows wonderful aromas of crushed blackberry and blueberry with hints of mint. Full-bodied with soft round tannins and a long delicious aftertaste. Generous and beautiful. Best after 2012. 2100 cases made. -JS

80% Merlot 10% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Cabernet Franc. Dark purple with blue flecks in the ruby rim. Limestone and cool blueberry aromas. Wet stone minerality keeps the fruit aromas a little muted. Great blueberry and... 80% Merlot 10% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Cabernet Franc. Dark purple with blue flecks in the ruby rim. Limestone and cool blueberry aromas. Wet stone minerality keeps the fruit aromas a little muted. Great blueberry and blackberry fruit on the palate. Good acidity with firm tannic finish.
