Robert Parker 95
A muscular, chunky wine, the 2003 Clos de Vougeot explodes from the glass with spicy black fruits. Medium to full-bodied and powerful, this deep mouth-coating effort is crammed with chocolate-covered black cherries. Its impressively prolonged finish reveals considerable tannin that is solid, yet ripe. Drink it between 2010 and 2020.
Anticipated maturity: 2010-2010
