From a mixture of sand, gravel, and clay soils, this unheralded terroir produces wines well-above its pedigree thanks to the extraordinary efforts of proprietors Chantal and Gerard Perse. The wines are given a 4- to 5-week maceration in both stainless steel and oak, and are aged sur-lie in new oak. The dark ruby/purple-colored 2003 offers up notes of smoky meats, melted licorice, jammy black cherries, spice box, earth, and cedar. This plump, fleshy, sexy, unfined, unfiltered wine represents a classic... Robert Parker

Had nice elements, but was too harsh. Still could use mellowing and depth.

2003 vintage. I was pleased with how this had aged. A very nice example. I think it is drinking now—I'll plan to drink my other bottles of this wine/vintage soon.
