Looking for the opinions of folks way more experienced with the region that I am. I don’t own a ton, but the few bottles of 05 I have seem like they may still be a good 5 years away based on some comments here and CT. Agree? Also, I’m wondering if 2010 is shaping up similar or might be ready sooner. I’ve had some lower-end St. Emilion from 2010 that I’ve really enjoyed. 

From 2005 I have single bottles of Leoville-Poyferre and Rauzan-Segla, and a good friend and I went half on a 3L of Leoville-Barton. Thanks for any input.

I’d hold on to the 2005s especially if it’s those bottles you mentioned. I have a lot of 2005 and none are ready to drink. 

2010 was a tannic year but also a hot year and I think the 2010s might be more open and ready  to drink in less time ( years from vintage) than the 2005s.
