I have had a bottle of Chateau Clos Renon 2005 sitting in my wine rack for a couple of years now and decided to open it today. The wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. I originally purchased two bottles of the wine and opened the first one whilst it was still young, however the two years of ageing have certainly improved what was already a particularly nice wine. The taste whilst young was fruity but a lacking a little body, but when aged even for a short time the wine has pleasant cherry like smell and a slight edge of oak to the flavour.
