Château Les Ragottes Bordeaux (2005)

Chateau Les Ragottes Bordeaux 2005Tonight I have a pot roast in the oven with an array of vegetables and a sauce of beer and cream and mushrooms. It smells and looks wonderful.

I chose this Château Les Ragottes Bordeaux 2005 for this dinner. This is a beautiful black in the glass. On the nose is cloves and spice. On the palate it is dry and astringent with hints of blackberry. The finish is medium long with oak and metal.

This is a wonderful French wine; it is not a fruit-forward wine like we are likely to taste from Australia, but it is complex with many layers of metal and fruit. Superb!

    A friend opened this 2005 Ragottes at a local Italian bistro.
    Complex. Very entertaining. Your tasting notes apply.
    In addition, I might add that there was a hint of juniper.
    Depends on the under/overtones of the food. Garlic was not
    Overt in the meal. This is a keeper.

      Hi! We purchase these wines from local stores and wine clubs. We don’t sell the wine. We just drink the wine. Happily, Tom speaks French so he was able to translate your message for me. Thank you for writing!
