"The 2003 Clos Vougeot comes forth with unreal aromas of mocha-laced black cherries, chocolate-drenched plums, and candied blackberries. Full-bodied, immensely concentrated, and deep, this broad, bulky, powerful wine is jam-packed with black chocolate, red as well as black cherries, licorice and tar. Loads of solid yet ripe tannin provide this dense blockbuster with ample structure, detectable in its interminable finish. It will require cellaring to civilize its weighty, graceless nature. Projected maturity: 2009-2019."
