varoilles 2003
2003 Domaine des Varoilles, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos des Varoillestry to find this wine...
Deep colour. The nose is an impressively wide and sweet affair tempered by a faintly spicy and understated vanilla, slowly it releases flashes of red and black fruits. In the mouth it’s less sweet than the nose suggests, even just a little tart. The tannin is well textured but perhaps in the finish is just a little bitter. Understated acidity still leaves your mouth watering and there’s reasonable length too. This wine seems to have a miss-match of parts, but might be worth a bottle or two in the cellar.
Rebuy – Maybe

    Sounds like notes on the 1988. And those tannins ARE nicely textured.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
