Domaine du Banneret Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2003

Member Review by GrantC:

My first bottle of CnfP in a while and now I remember why I love it. This wine has a lovely coloring; pale purple, almost mahogany at the the edges of the glass. Very distinct and forward aroma; gamey, earthy, almost like wet soil. It doesn't do much on the tongue right away, but has a very, very dry finish with some nice depth. The aroma comes out again in the finish. This wine is very "back heavy." I wish it had as much up front, but it is still wonderful. Overall, a most enjoyable bottle, very robust, if a bit backward. I plan to buy another couple of bottles and store them for another few years.
