There are just over 1000 cases of the Cabernet Sauvignon which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the hillsides of the Blankiet estate. The 2003 showing an almost “liqueur of rocks” character is a huge gigantic Cabernet Sauvignon that is intense purple in color very full-bodied with notes of coffee graphite blackberry blueberry and cassis. The striking minerality comes forth in the flavors as well and the wine reveals refined but high tannins a massive texture and awesome concentration. Give this wine 4-5 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 30 years. It is a stunning Cabernet Sauvignon that is showing even better out of bottle that it did from barrel.

Good deep red with a dark core. High-pitched aromas of cassis, blackberry, minerals, flowers, licorice and leather are a bit less fruity than those of the 2002. Juicy and suave in the mouth, with penetrating acidity... Good deep red with a dark core. High-pitched aromas of cassis, blackberry, minerals, flowers, licorice and leather are a bit less fruity than those of the 2002. Juicy and suave in the mouth, with penetrating acidity giving the wine excellent vibrancy for its vintage. Finishes with huge, mouth-saturating tannins that still need time. “But this wine in 750-milliliter bottles is ready to drink,” noted Claude Blankiet.
