Winemaker's Notes

"Gardine's 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Generations boasts a blue/purple hue to the rim along with potent, heady notes of lead pencil shavings, espresso, white chocolate, black currants, and cherries.

However, patience is a virtue. As with most top vintages, this is one of the most backward examples produced. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020+."
-Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 92-94
