Winemakers Joel Aiken and Jeffrey Stambor waited three weeks after the mid-September heat spikes of 2003 to start picking Cabernet, meanwhile keeping the vines refreshed with a sprinkler system. Their 2003 is more massive than traditional Georges de Latour, but it still retains the trademark elegance of this Rutherford wine. The dark, chocolate-cherry flavors are held firm by tannin, with a graphite minerality that keeps it structured for ten years of age.
Just classic Georges, balanced, elegant and refined, hiding its power under a blanket of controlled finesse. There’s great depth of flavor, with oodles of blackberry, cherry and raspberry, mocha, Chinese plum sauce, soy and spicy oak, wrapped in firm, dry tannins. Just wonderful now, but with the certainty of a long life ahead. Drink–2020. *Cellar Selection*
