Community Tasting Notes (4) Avg Score: 86 points

  • Medium/deep ruby/garnet core, medium pale garnet rim. Nose shows sweet red fruits, vanilla and spice. This is medium/full bodied on the palate with a core of generous sweet red fruit, some vanilla and earth notes, soft tannins, medium acidity and a medium length, harmonious finish. Seems to have come together quite nicely.

  • Medium/deep ruby core, medium pale garnet rim. Rich nose with ripe red fruit, mainly cherries, some creamy vanilla, some development with earthy hints and a slight meaty edge. Full bodied, more rich ripe fruit on initial entry with red cherry and a hint of plum, mouth-coating but ripe tannins but only moderate acidity on the good length finish. Slightly soupy and ungainly - lacking a little grace - but enjoyable nevertheless and may yet turn into a beautiful swan.

  • Medium ruby core, slight purple tints, medium pale ruby rim. Youthful nose, fresh, ripe raspberries and red cherries, vanilla notes. On the palate this has plenty of dense, chewy but ripe tannin with red cherry and raspberry fruit to the fore, vanilla and then some roasted coffee notes coming through on the decent length finish. Certainly rich, but with sufficient acidity to give a sense of freshness and vigour. In fact among the better 2003's I have so far tasted, it will be interesting to see how this develops but given the impressive structure and depth of fruit it ought to have ageing potential. 86+?

  • Clear dark red. Very nice nose of red currant, licorice. Clean and polished. A light drinking wine, not quite at 1er cru level, but priced accordingly.
