The pasting that this heatwave received, 10 years on, from our panel was not wholly unexpected. 'Okay', 'sound' and 'drinkable' were descriptors reserved for only the best wines. See the top rated Medoc crus classes and St Emilion premiers grands crus classes 2003s here...

Beautiful classic cedarwood and graphite nose. Fairly rich on the attack, with decent acidity to bolster the fruit. The tannins are quite chewy but not too tough, and there’s reasonable persistence and better balance than most.
