La Romanée, Bouchard Père et Fils 2003

Tasting Notes

Super ripe, spicy and sexy black fruit aromas that are neither surmature nor roasted have nuances of mocha, tobacco, anise and clove framed by a background touch of oak toast merge into extract of pinot flavors that coat the mouth and are unbelievably complex and quite fine given the general character of the vintage. This is an exciting and ageworthy wine with that "wow" factor, crafted in a very ripe but not jammy or over-the-top style.
