Similar to the bottle I had in July 2013. Excellent bottle in its prime. I see no reason to rush but also no reason to wait. I do not think it will be getting any better. Opened a bit before drinking (no decant) and the wine opened and improved through the bottle. Rich and satisfying. Classic CDP palate of flavors.
Cheers- bottle 3 of 6 and the best one yet. Not sure why this one was better than the first 2, but this bottle was delicious. I decanted it again, after 2 hrs it was fantastic. Might be interesting to hold one or two of these for at least 3 more years.
Ce 2003 est un modèle de buvabilité. Avec ses jolis arômes de kirsch, de fraises, orange sanguine et de garrigue, il est de corps moyen, sans aucun excès de chaleur . Un vin typé, pas très complexe mais bien savoureux, d’un très bel équilibre, avec une jolie finale épicée. Très bon, il est à maturité et s’y maintiendra sans doute pour 5 ans et plus. 90 pts
