    Winemaker's Notes:

    Dark garnet-red color. The nose is well-focused, concentrated, and marked by ripe, almost jammy black fruit aromas as well as plum and cherry. The wine's very appearance – especially the rich, deeply-colored legs on the side of the glass – are typical of a sunny vintage. Imposing on the palate with a firm structure thanks to solid, youthful tannin. The long aftertaste has hints of smokiness and juicy black fruit. 2003 Clos l'Eglise absolutely needs to be decanted at least one hour before serving at this stage to soften it and to let it open up. Furthermore, the wine gains from being served at cellar temperature to avoid the impression of a slight excess in alcohol. You can drink this wine from a very ripe vintage as of now, but it will benefit from 3-5 years further ageing. It is a treat with lamb, grilled beef, and game.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fresh and fruity with lovely berry, grapes and flowers. Full-bodied, round and delicious. Long. Best after 2006. 3,500 cases made.
