Tried it at Pappas' Pinot Noir. Well made and appealing, but nevertheless the weakest of the Cote de Beaune offerings, and possibly the weakest of the Burgundies. It was also the only 2003 being poured.
This wine is correct. But that's all. You expect more from Burgundy. Almost nothing on the nose and palate, but nothing wrong or harsh either. Just emptiness wrapped in a light body with some tannins. Would work well when cooled down to a temperature for serving white wines.
Medium ruby. Very pure nose of red fruits, flowers, spice and leather. Medium bodied and rather wound up for an 03. Has nice sweetness of fruit but the structure currently dominates. The finish is tannic and a bit dry but not at all rustic or harsh.. This needs food now. Should round out with some time in the bottle.
