Community Tasting Note

  • Christoffer78 Likes this wine: 94 points

    July 19, 2014 - Absolutely smashing, the 2003 Pajé delivers the most exquisit Nebbiolo perfume full of sour cherry, Amaretto, sweet almond, red currant and a profound complexity. There are secondary tones of wet saddle leather and subtle cacao. The palate adds astonishingly well to the other components. It is completely integrated and perfectly balanced. Acidity is of course still dominant and that makes this effort a lovely food companion. A lot of wine aficionados claim this vintage is atypical. I find this wine utterly compelling and one of the better Barbarescos I have tasted on several occasions. Most likely in a perfect drinking phase right now, this wine has never performed better in previous tastings. (score is 94+)
