In this lineup, it seems just slightly behind the off-the-charts, 2010, 2007 and 2005. Just now starting to show hints of maturity (bottles from my cellar show more evolution than this one), it’s an incredible Chateauneuf that offers textbook kirsch, licorice, graphite, blackcurrants and spice to go with a full-bodied, layered and voluptuously-styled feel on the palate. Like the other 2003 from this estate, it shows no signs over ripeness, possesses sweet tannin and beautiful purity. I’d drink it over the coming 3-5 years, but it will evolve for longer. - Jeb Dunnuck

Dense modern style with lots of cocoa and toast covering the black currant mineral and tar flavors. Thick almost loamy finish will need some cellaring but there's superb concentration and depth here. Best from 2006... Dense modern style with lots of cocoa and toast covering the black currant mineral and tar flavors.
