Product Description

2003 will be remembered as the year of a Summer heatwave. It was a very early vintage but with a low harvest. The long and consistent flowering took place in late May and was one to two weeks early. June was marked by scorching temperatures and violent storms with occasional hail. July and August were hot and the grapes changed color heterogeneously.

The harvest began on September 11th and the choice of the date was a compromise between the high sugar content, the low acidity and the ripeness of the tannins and aromas. The heat wave continued in September with some rain at the beginning of the month, which weakened the merlot. However, the wines were relatively colorful and powerful.

This vintage is surprisingly well balanced and apt to age long.

The color is dark. The nose is open, it contains notes of caramel. The attack is full. The palate is balanced with toasted, liquorices notes and an amazing freshness. To drink in 10-30 years.
