Clos les Lunelles Côtes de Castillon Bordeaux Sonstige 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :This 21+ acre vineyard planted on a clay and limestone plateau consists of 38-year-old Merlot (80%), Cabernet Franc (10%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). It was acquired by Gerard and Chantal Perse in 2001, and in less than two years has become the reference point winery for the Cotes de Castillon ... not surprising in view of the commitment to excellence exhibited by the Perses. Made from tiny yields of less than 20 hectoliters per hectare, the blockbuster 2003 tips the scales at 13.5% alcohol. It reveals a peppery, spicy, incense-laced bouquet interwoven with black cherry jam, blackberry, and cassis-like aromas. Full-bodied, opulent, long, rich, and persistent, it is the finest wine I have ever tasted from the Cotes de Castillon. Enjoy it over the next 10-15 years.

Garnet or ruby color, clear, clean, with pronounced nose of ripe cherry, a bit of honey, floral, and fresh leather. In the mouth medium bodied, perhaps a bit thin, with tart ripe and chewy cherry, plus a hint of pepper, that all faded to underripe loquat (yes, loquat) which continued in the medium-length finish. Never detected loquat on a red wine before, but it's closest I could come to describing the finish. This was a tasty wine.

Full ruby color. Medicinal black cherry and licorice on the nose. Impressively sweet and dense, with this property's characteristic syrah-like gamey nuance complementing flavors of black fruits and bitter chocolate. Superripe but not at all flat. Fin... Stephen Tanzer. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Clos les Lunelles 750ml
