Beautifully dark and rich. So typically pontet canet and to that extent, typically pauillac in style. Beautiful example of the pontet style and the ripe 2003 vintage. I personally love where the 03s are right now. Very hedonistic but starting to show some secondary aromas and flavors. The 03s never seem to shut down and just continue to get better and better

This is drinking absolutely beautifully. Big, ripe and delicious. Gobs of dark fruit, yet complex and balanced. Like a top flight Napa bottle, in a good way.

Very dense, lush and ripe. Intense blackberry with notes of graphite and tobacco. Not over-ripe but pushing the edges. Lovely plush mouthfeel and long. Still young

Surprisingly enjoyable for a 15 year old wine from a hot vintage. Classic Pauilliac cedar and leather mild tannins and lovely finish.

Just cracked opened the case, which was purchased en premieur from the winery. AG nailed this note, too. Needs lots of air, but exhibits a textbook Bdx expression. Fresh coffee roast notes, co-mingle with black fruits. This has another 20 years of runway ahead of it as the tannins are robust. This will further improve with more cellaring.

3 hour decant. Heavy notes of cherry, raspberry, and blackberries. A little hint of mushrooms and earth on the backend with some nice silkiness thrown in for good measure. Nice wine to end the long weekend.

Beautiful. Fruity and a little candied but stunning from start to finish.
