The magical 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee brings to mind a richer more alcoholic version of their 1990. The 2003's dense plum/purple color is followed by flamboyant aromas and flavors of roasted meats spicy herbs pepper blackberries and cedar-tinged kirsch-like fruit. Unctuously-textured with low acidity high glycerin as well as alcohol (16+% ) and a monster finish it displays enormous concentration silky tannin and no hard edges. This remarkable traditionally-styled Chateauneuf du Pape will be drinkable young yet should age effortlessly for two decades or more.

Offers aromas of freshly crushed plum and blackberry with a Port-like headiness then pumps out dark berry fruit bramble licorice tar and pain d'épices flavors before a flitter of game and [i]garrigue[n] on the finish... Offers aromas of freshly crushed plum and blackberry with a Port-like headiness then pumps out dark berry fruit bramble licorice tar and pain d'épices flavors before a flitter of game and [i]garrigue[n] on the finish. Dense and muscular but also luxurious. Best from 2008 through 2030. 5830 cases made. (JM)
