International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95Full, deep ruby-red. Roasted black fruits and melting chocolate on the exotically ripe nose. Fat, lush, smooth and large-scaled, with a seamless texture and explosive ripeness. Exotic flavor of chocolate liqueur. Finishes with extremely suave, fine tannins and outstanding persistence. This wine struck me as distinctly '47-like in its extravagant, almost port-like richness, although I must admit that I did not begin tasting the '47s until about 35 years after the vintage. My projected range may prove to be conservative. Like the Amoureuses, this sample came from another cellar that was a few degrees warmer, and thus was a bit tricky to assess.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2005
Wine Advocate | Rating: 97Lardiere was compelled to vinify the 2003 Musigny whole-cluster as yields were so minuscule. Its stunningly complex aromatics - particularly for such a youthful wine - display herb-laced dark fruits, notes of chocolate, and spices. Full-bodied, massively structured and powerful, it is one of the densest, deepest red Burgundies I've encountered. A firm wine studded with coffee, blackberry, black cherry, stone, and roasting spice flavors, it also offers notes of licorice and asphalt during its interminable finish. If this titan ages as I suspect it will, my niece and nephew will be blown away by it when they're in their 50s (they are in lower school at present!).Author: Pierre Rovani
Wine Spectator | Rating: 90Pure cherry and pomegranate flavors accented by flowers, vanilla and a hint of chocolate in this medium-bodied red. It's elegant, distinctive and well-balanced, with ripe tannins for support. Fine length.169 cases imported.Author: Bruce Sanderson
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95While it is often extremely difficult to find, this may be vintage in and vintage out Jadot's finest red and not surprisingly, only the Clos de BŠze really challenges it in '03. The immensely complex nose is backward, tight and brooding yet vigorous swirling reveals reluctant nose of violets, dark cherry and oriental spices that seamlessly merge into big, rich, opulent and exceptionally classy flavors that are round, sweet, deep and completely coat the palate on the powerfully long finish that goes on and on. The tannins are suave with a velvety texture and gorgeous mouth feel. A flat out superb effort that will age for decades.Issue: 2nd Quarter, 2005
