2003 Chateau L' Arrosee
"The significant investments that have been made by l'Arrosee's new owner are reflected in the outstanding 2003, which represents a return to form for this formidable St.-Emilion. Behaving like the Sophie Marceau of Bordeaux, this vintage exhibits beautiful aromas of sweet cherries, plums, figs, subtle toasty oak, and abundant black currant characteristics. Velvety textured, voluptuous, pure, and sensual, this dark ruby-colored wine is meant to be consumed over the next 12-15 years. Its beauty, equilibrium, and purity are stunning."
