"A candidate for the top Fronsac of the vintage, the 2005 Moulin-Haut-Laroque is the qualitative equivalent of the estate’s brilliant 2003. Its dense purple color is accompanied by sweet cassis fruit interwoven with notions of cold steel and flowers. Elegant, powerful, medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic, and impeccably pure and textured, this is a sleeper of the vintage."
