“Situated northwest of Libourne, this 37-acre vineyard, planted with 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, has fashioned a sleepers of the vintage. Produced from 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the dense ruby/purple-hued 2003 exhibits an opulent black raspberry and cherry-scented bouquet offering hints of cedar, vanilla, and roasted herbs. Beautifully-textured, medium to full-bodied, with silky tannin, it can be enjoyed now and over the next 5-7 years.” Robert Parker 89 Points
A small parcel of just 25 cases of Chateau Beaulieu 2003 which we found in Bordeaux last month and bought immediately. From the exceptional 2003 this is a rich, ripe and delicious mature claret at its peak with another 3-4 years of sheer drinking pleasure ahead of it. Claret at this age at under £15 (on our offer price) a bottle has disappeared from the market.
A great bargain – order quickly.
