It is against my better judgment to taste the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes at such an early age as I find they typically require at least 12 months to reveal the definition/delineation so essential in these creamy creme brulee and honeysuckle-flavored offerings. Nevertheless because this vintage is so highly regarded I tasted through most of the top estates. The 2003s appear to be somewhat in the style of the 1990s with high levels of residual sugar (higher than 2001 for the most part) as well as botrytis low acidity and fat full-bodied personalities. This region’s harvest began extremely early (early September) and was completely finished within three weeks. It does not appear that the nobleness and racy richness of the 2001 vintage will be found in the 2003s but readers who like the big flamboyant over the top style of the 1990s will enjoy the 2003s even more than I did.

Lasts a very long time on the palate. Even better than from barrel. Yummy. Best after 2009. 3000 cases made. (JS)

A nice rich dark gold hue with visible swirls of sugar. Fresh stone fruit aromas - predominantly apricot - with back notes of cedar. Thick and lush on the palate with a slight hint of petrol. Rich and fruity. Smooth round... A nice rich dark gold hue with visible swirls of sugar. Fresh stone fruit aromas - predominantly apricot - with back notes of cedar.
