This wine is aged on its lees and as one would expect it has put on weight since last year. A dark ruby/purple hue is followed by a noble complex bouquet of cigar smoke Provencal herbs sweet black cherries currants and a hint of truffles. It possesses a meaty texture loads of flavor superb concentration and that undeniable complexity that great terroirs routinely produce. The beautiful multilayered finish with no hard edges is also noteworthy. Like most of the top 2003s the acidity

Winemaker's Notes:

"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...90" WA 4/06
