Typical in it's tightness and drying of the palate. Again, a stated 13.5% alcohol level that doesn't match the hot experience of the wine. No complexity and no depth of fruit. Just a tight, metallic mouth and finish.

A bottle that took a long time to open. The rim in the glass is almost unicolor ... no signs of aging. The warmth of the vintage is detectable with fairly ripe fruit aromas but the wine retains a certain acidity which refreshes the whole. Much more beautiful on the second day. A very good pomerol but which still needs 5 to 10 years to be more approachable. The 2003 clinet is currently a better alternative.

3 hrs in the decanter. Warm carressing nose of ultraripe prunes, cinnamon spice, gingerbread, melting creamy chocolate, coffee beans and toasty oak. Really suave and utterly digestible thanks to a great acidic core. Best 03 right-banker I ever had.

Have had a few left bank examples from the hot 2003 year lately which were not holding up as well as they might. This right bank example was a pleasant surprise. Dusty notes of wilted rose, plum and tobacco. Palate very right bank lacking the plush cassis notes we often see in the new world- a point of difference.
