    July 27, 2015 - Tasted again with - not surprisingly - very similar notes; on the evening just lacking in comparison with the shining 2001, but I remain convinced, that Marcoux has done an excellent 2003 vintage.

    April 26, 2015 - Very slight bricking at edge. Slightly stewed nose. Fruit still strong and bright. Slightly "gamey". Unctuous with thick legs. Starting to decline but still strong. Drink immediately.

    March 8, 2015 - I bought 2 cases on release and have stored in perfect conditions. The wine in many of the bottles started started pushing through the corks by 2007. There is obviously something wrong with the corks used for this vintage.

    February 28, 2015 - Significant residue under the capsule, and seepage on the cork all the way to the top rim. The bottle didn't have overt oxidative signs, but it was quite one-dimensional and tart, and not what I would expect from a CdP at this age, nor what I would expect based on the other notes here.

    February 23, 2015 - This has certainly improved, and while one still senses the heat of the vintage, this is one of the strongest efforts this year; rich, deep, sweet fruit, lots of garrigue and local character, good balance, even my wife, the Burgundy-aficionado, liked it, which does go to show something. Perfect with braised lamb shanks...
