This was an amazing performance for Monbousquet. The 2003 exhibits plenty of fat and succulence along with a full-bodied, sexy mouthfeel, and lots of black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with licorice, baking spices and roasted herbs. Fully mature yet in no danger of falling apart or in decline, the color remains a healthy plum/garnet to the rim. This full throttle 2003 was one of the great buys of the vintage when it was first released, and continues to prove that great winemaking and viticultural management from less heralded terroirs can result in wines well-above their pedigree. Drink this beauty over the next 2-3 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Good saturated ruby-red. Mellow aromas of berry liqueur smoked meat and rich oak. Fat and powerful if a bit stunted today and difficult to taste. Best today on the finish which shows firm tannic spine and a juicy quality... Good saturated ruby-red. Mellow aromas of berry liqueur smoked meat and rich oak. Fat and powerful if a bit stunted today and difficult to taste. Best today on the finish which shows firm tannic spine and a juicy quality that's quite refreshing in the context of the vintage. Today I prefer this to the young 2004. 89-92 points

Essence of blackberry here on the nose with a hint of cream. Full-bodied yet silky and refined with lovely texture and length. Delicious and long. Gorgeous. Best after 2010. 7000 cases made. (JS)
