Wine Spectator: Shows the ripeness of this very warm year but stays well-defined and fresh, with lush plum, raspberry and black cherry fruit lined with notes of violet, bergamot and red licorice. This is starting to show some secondary tobacco and spice notes on the finish, which has a nice briary edge as well. Not at all blown out by the heat of '03, this has balance and freshness, with the ability to develop further with time.óLarcis Ducasse non-blind vertical (December 2012). Drink now through 2022.

Robert Parker: This noble terroir is finally exploiting its full potential. Situated near Pavie on a clay/limestone base topped with pure limestone, the brilliant team of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt has completely resurrected this great estate from the depths of mediocrity in less than two years. Fashioned from 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon (2,500 cases produced), the beautifully elegant 2003 reveals sweet cedar, fruitcake, and aristocratic cassis and tobacco notes reminiscent of an exceptional Medoc. Complexity and nobility continue in the mouth with wonderfully fresh, lively, black currant and plum-like characteristics interwoven with kirsch. Expansive, round, and generous, with low acidity and superb fruit ripeness, it is a candidate for drinking during its first 12-15 years of life. It is undeniably disarming at present, but will it close down? Anticipated maturity: now-2016.
