2005 Clos Saint Jean CDP...this wine really needs at least 6 hrs decanting at this time. Intitally you couldn't guess it was a CDP. Very big, muscular, fruity and a lot of licorice on the nose and on the palate. Only after 6 hrs or so did it any CDP profiles of meaty and earth characteristics.It is a young but very good wine that is now very muscular with very sweet fruit. Something to lay down for awhile and I suspect it's going to be very good in another 5-10 years.
