"The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Pierres Dorees is a knock-out offering. A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre (two-thirds of the latter is aged in small barrels and one-third of the Grenache is aged in foudre, and the rest in tank), it includes 100% of the grape stems. From the La Crau and Valori sectors, it is a potentially awesome Chateauneuf du Pape with a saturated deep ruby color, a classic structure, and a superb perfume of black fruits, licorice, roasted meats, and earth. This full-bodied, dense, extremely persistent 2003 requires 3-4 years of cellaring, and should drink well for 12-15 years (one of the longest lived wines in the Lesec portfolio)."
