88–89 pts. : May/Jun 2007

(tasted from cuvée shortly before bottling) Medium-deep red. Black cherry, licorice and a minty nuance on the nose. Juicy, penetrating and youthful, with good density and power. The wine’s substantial tannins will require at least a few years of patience.

One of the least expensive wines from Gérard Perse’s three Côtes de Castillon estates, the 2005 Ste-Colombe is unquestionably the softest and most immediately accessible. Its dark ruby color is followed by a concoction of ripe, sweet black currant and cherry fruit, incense, spring flowers, and spice. Drink this richly fruity 2005 over the next 4–5 years.

Moderately saturated medium red. Rather high-toned aromas of cherry, red plum, licorice, herbs and pepper. Bright acidity gives this wine good juicy cut and verve. A very fresh style of 2005, but seemingly a bit less dense in bottle than it was in barrel. I’d drink this sooner rather than later.

[Barrel tasting] Fresh and fruity with floral and plum aromas. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish.

: September, 2009 5/5 stars

Medium in body but filled with flavor. Black cherry, spice box and currant. Lush in its flavors and carried along by soft tannins. Great ’05 drinker.
