Deep garnet color. Moss, mushroom and some dark fruit on the nose initially, giving way to sort of a metallic, terroir based aroma. Currant, plum and dark berry on the palate with a bit of oak. Well balanced with integrated tannins. This is drinking very well right now. Will certainly last 10 more years but why wait? Don't believe it will get much better. Served as part of a flight of 10 2003 Bordeaux at a gala wine dinner hosted by friends
Ripe blackberry nose fairly pure and clean that opened to that stale pencil lead vanilla. Nice light to mid weight entry with a smooth fruit driven flavour profile - very juicy. Finish is short with a wooden light tannins. Nice, easy drinker if not overly serious.
In the bouquet an exclusive Bordeaux wine; dark fruits, a touch of pepper and luxurious oak. On the palate juicy cassis, hidden round tannin with still a pleasant bite and good bitterness. The wine is in its early maturity stage now and will probably show a bit more with another 2 years of cellaring. Nevertheless really a great pleasure now already.
