Magnum that never left his home before ending in my glass in NYC! Amazing floral note, great fruit and acidity. Thank you @arnaudtronche for sharing!

Many wines from 2003 are compromised and stewed due to the European heatwave that year. This has darker & riper fruit than one usually expects from this wine, but it works beautifully here. Has plenty of meaty/truffle secondary notes, but lots of power and energy to balance those characteristics. Not always a great vintage, but works great here.
