Chateau Haut Bages Averous 2005
has deep colour, round and soft nose, thick and richly textured, it is a fresh, dry and complete wine – this does not taste like something ‘left out’ of the Grand Vin de Lynch Bages, but a fine wine in its own right. ‘Particularly velvety’ says Jean-Charles Cazes of Chateau Haut Bages Averous 2005. A wine that is not lacking in either volume or succulence. A good example of pauillac that will prove accessible in its youth. Chateau Haut Bages Averous 2005 is comparatively straight-forward but with everything in harmony, this is a wonderful, mouth-filling wine for its level and one that is sure to win favour.
