Chateau Lavergne-Dulong 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Nose of blackberry and cedar
Juicy, dense core
Smooth, fruity finish

Bordeaux Superior wines can be real bargains in good years. With 2003, it's worth sampling a few to get a sense for what's available. This wine is only $12 and is probably the best Bordeaux Superior this chateau has ever produced. Their earlier wines were known to be herbal and thin.

I hope this is telling of other bargain 2003 Bordeaux. The vintage is considered monumental, so the overall quality of even the inexpensive wines should be high. Raise a glass!
