First DRC Monty for me, so. Hard to say if typical. Women said, kick ass and i want more! Had a lot of 03's and a lot of other Monty's. Initial impression: smooth, clean and Length was beyond belief. Orange and lemon oil, great fruits, great acidity. Structure, balance and power, the heat of 2003 was not apparant Apricot, white peaches. Light minerality, none of the overripe, bacon fat quality of the 2003's that I have had. One of the most memorable wines I have ever had.
A very heavy and rich butterscotch nose showing a great sense of minerality. yum... Mouthcoating sweetness on the palate and layers of complexity on the palate. Some oak on the finish but the finish last beautifully - fresh and good acid, with a lovely crème brûlée finish. Shockingly good wine for a 2003! Not at all "roasted" or dull, which you might likely expect given the heat of the summer. (Domaine)

(DRC Montrachet) The 2003 DRC Montrachet had a mild nose by comparison with light yellow hues including corn and the stalk, along with a lot of slate. There were nice, round, forward flavors with some richness despite a softer and simpler overall personality. It is a good vintage of DRC Monty to drink young with its round, lush and forward style. Bipin commented on its ‘low acidity,’ and a debate emerged about its ageability, and Mark stood up for its potential, comparing it to 1976, another hot vintage
