2003 vintage. Surprisingly the label only states 12,5% abv. in the year of the heatwave. Another stunning example of how underrated Blaye and Bourg can be. Strawberry jam and cedarwood. Still a lot of ripe red fruit and good acidity. Tannins have a little rough edge but are well-integrated. Delicious food wine, and a huge success for the vintage. Note: it seems that this estate is not as good anymore as it used to be, so it might be wiser to stick to the older vintages.
