2005 Anjou Villages Brissac Christian Papin, Domaine de Haute Perche

This was an attractive bottle we enjoyed about a week ago. Deep coloured it had dense ripe black fruit – prune and plum. Some evolution and is drinking well now – soft tannins are well integrated – but there is no rush to drink this 2005 up and it can happily be kept for at least another two or three years or more.
