Flight 6 (1 Note)

  • 2003 Château Cantemerle 83 Points

    France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Haut-Médoc

    Oaky at first then the nose develops fruity and meaty notes.
    Very sweet with gentle tannins, drinking quite well now but could improve over the next 5 years.

Flight 7 (1 Note)

  • 2003 Château Labégorce-Zédé 90 Points

    France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux

    Nicely perfumed, meaty with some fruit.
    Sweet, fruity and spicy, concentrated and balanced, still quite tannic, just about drinkable now but will be so much better in 5 years.

Flight 10 (1 Note)

  • 2003 Château D'Aiguilhe 84 Points

    France, Bordeaux, Libournais, Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

    A very different nose, earthy, treacly, complex.
    Raisins in the mouth, spicy, tannic, somehow past its best, dries out in the mid palate and then disappears very quickly.
