Red Bordeaux Blend - Third Growth
Producer Notes

Believed to have once been home to an order of the Knights Templar in the 14th century, the Bordeaux chateau was acquired by Baron de Brane, of Mouton and Brane-Cantenac fame, before being turned over in the late 18th century to Napoleon's finance minister, who significantly expanded the vineyard. However, it wasn't until a century later that Lagrange wines achieved superior quality. The Cendoya... More »

Drink Dates 2007-2015

This bottle was all about finesse. It was delicate, but beautiful. There was plenty of ripe fruit and tannins, and a pleasant hint of brett on the finish. This was understated and showed plenty of restraint, as if to avoid upstaging any of the foods it could be paired with. A pleasant, refined drinking experience. I would like to try a 2005 or 2000 in comparison to this 2003. Note - this bottle showed signs of beginning to go over the hill. The 2003 vintage was ultra-ripe and peaked early, and this bottling could be on the way out. Drink up now.

Consumed on the early side because it spent ~1yr aging in ambient temp rather that 60 deg F. As such, clearly at peak. Beautiful, long nose with notes of blackberry, sour cherry, and hint of vanilla. Soft palate with some slight earthen tones. Consumed with rib-eye steak and broiled asparagus with EVOO - an excellent combination that brought out the juicy flavors in the meat. Saved for a second day tasting using a vacuum-sealer; the wine did not disappoint on the second day, losing little of its flavors.

We drank this with grilled Ribeye on 3/11/09. It decanted an hour (should have been longer) and had a great, earthy bouquet of black currant, blackberry, cherry, licorice, tobacco and dark chocolate aromas. It was dense and tannic, so the first taste was a bit of an assault. Then, it was smooth, a little sour and dusty dry with flavors that followed the nose. It had a long, 60 second, finish, was complex, elegant and extremely pleasant.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
