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….
