Community Tasting Note

  • eudora Likes this wine: 93 points

    March 13, 2019 - The B-D drank beautifully, with an expressive bouquet of cherry, spice, dark berries and cedar. Beautiful tannins, plenty of acidic core and tons of fruit. This wine just keeps getting better — it is in full glory.

    While I’m on the topic, I was at a tasting with some Bordeaux aficionados last week, and a few of them opined that the 2003 vintage is fading. That has not been my experience. Every 2003 I’ve had in the last two years has been integrated, full-bodied, well-balanced, and lots of fruit. The B-D is just the latest example of a great wine from an underrated vintage.
