Incredible nose of crushed berry, licorice, violets and lightly toasted oak. Pure creme de cassis. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Solid... Wine Spectator

Acts half its age, fresh as a daisy which is something to admire in this vintage. Easily another 20 years here. Probably much better in 5 years.

Sorry, no love for '03 in this region from me. Pruny and lacking in acid.

Delicious combination of savory and ripe fruit flavors- really lovely integration- the plush tannins and so little greenness may be the clue it is from 2003

Ok a 2003 I can love. Hard to go wrong with las cases but good dark fruit, light tannins and a long finish. Great stuff!

3 hour decant and was drinking really well over next 2 hours. At 13 years old it was just starting to get into the tertiary characteristics

Sadly underwhelming as the initial promise on the nose of this 03 failed to meet expectations once fully open. Ripe but without depth.

absolutely spectacular wine. Body was full. Elegant, soft but yet strong finish wine. Deserve the Saint Julien reputation. Better than reputation of 2003 from the region. Has aged very well. Easily fit in caterogy of grand vin.
