The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape (aged 50% in foudres, 35% in tank, and 15% in small barrels) shows superb quality with a big, sweet nose of tapenade, ground pepper, kirsch, blackberry, and licorice. The wine has great fruit, full body, tremendous density, and a layered, full-bodied palate with even a hint of truffle emerging. This wine should drink well for up to a decade. (RP)
Medium ruby color. Vibrant aromas of spicy red berries and rhubarb, with a touch of minerality. Here is another 2003 that betrays no overripe or stewed tones. At once sweet and lively on the palate, with red berry flavors given focus by firm but fine-grained tannins. Finishes with persistent fruit flavors and good grip. (JR)
Good, solid mix of red and dark berry fruit, with briar, tobacco and tar notes on the fleshy finish. Solid example of the vintage. Drink now through 2018. (JM)
