The disappointment of the weekend, and rightly so.  A Pomerol wine from the infamously hot 2003 that showed off all the downsides of that tricky Bordeaux vintage.  As I pulled it out of the cellar my instinct told me we were in for a stewed and gamey wine.  I wasn’t far off the mark.  I wrote two lines for this wine-

Burnt Plum.  Cooked Prunes.  Says it all really.  Back in the day it got 90 points from WS and currently sells for $50, good luck.  Avoiding wines from this vintage is sound advice.  If you have any in the cellar, drink up as they are falling of a cliff at a great speed.  Salut….
