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...

17pts/20 (90/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Stephen Brook 17.5 Ronan Sayburn MS 16.5 Steven Spurrier 17
Robust, earthy, black cherry nose with rich, meaty fruit. Broad, rich, packed with fruit and concentrated, but also has invigorating acidity. Dense without being extracted, and has some swagger and flesh. Has a good future.
