Guide Hachette 2008

CHATEAU SAINTE BARBE 2005 was awarded two stars (remarkable wine). “This wine continues to keep its two stars from one year to another, a proof of its example of regularity. Composed of 20% Cabernet grapes, Merlot from a clay soil dominates this vintage with its dark red color that gives more flavors spices and resins associated with ripe red fruits. Volume, roundness, fruity: the palette is durable, structured with solid tannins but coated the lingering finish leaves a smooth burgundy impression. This wine can wait two or three years. “..

CHATEAU MERLOT SAINTE BARBE 2005 received a star (successful wine). “Made exclusively from merlot grapes and aged in vats, ready to drink”.
