Tasting Notes: Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 91 Points: “The Decoster family acquired this property in 2001 and hit pay dirt with the 2003, despite the extreme heat and drought of June, July and August. Plenty of fig, plum and black currant fruit are present; the tannins are totally resolved; and the wine is medium- to full-bodied and opulent with low acidity and a lush texture. This juicy, appealing 2003 should drink well for 4-5 more years.” (RP) Aug 2014
