2003 Chat Branaire
This is a futures order! It will arrive in the Spring/Summer of 2006! You must purchase only case quantites! Bottle orders will not be accepted! . . ."A hugely successful effort from this consistent estate, Branaireâ€™s 2003 boasts a dense purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of plums, cassis, briery fruit, and hints of violets and minerals. Medium to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannin, outstanding purity, a textured, plump, nicely layered mouthfeel, and low acidity, this 2003 is somewhat reminiscent of the propertyâ€™s brilliant 1982. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020."
