following my previous email I did not receive any answer
I know bad experience about any wines could happen but your comments could mean that we are producing a very bad wine which far from the reality.
please see R Parker comments about 2009 and 2010 vintages
Château Larteau 2010, Robert Parker 87
Although not complex, this 100% Merlot reveals sweet plum and berry fruit, an attractive, succulent mouthfeel, good purity and an up-front, precocious style. It is meant to be drunk during its first 2-3 years of life.The Wine Advocate, 4th May 2011.
Château Larteau 2009, Robert Parker 87
Fashioned from 100% Merlot, this mainstream, deliciously fruity, succulent, soft, dark ruby/purple-tinged, juicy 2009 is everything a bargain hunter is seeking. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years. (Tasted once.).
The Wine Advocate, 27thApril 2010.
I may precise that 2005 is not my family vintage as we began in 2007 but our wine aker was already there and I am sure you drank a bottle that was probably corked.
Itis high time to dink the 2005 but i did not recive any such comments before your post.
And about the 2005 by Mr FASSBENDER a german quite serious journalist and wine critic wrote in 2006.
Château Larteau 2005, 88/100
Intense black ruby colour with violet hints. In the nose, at the first tasting in April the wine seems promising but hard. Smoke, dark fruit. On the palate pleasurable with a compact sweet morello cherry fruit, good tannin structure and robe, strong, dense and robust. Has the class of a Cru Classé from St. Emilion. Smooth tannins, juicy, sweet and elegant. Long finish. Was much more elegant and harmonic during second tasting in June. http://www.degustation.de, Bordeaux Primeur Tasting Vintage 2005, April- June 2006
