2×2003 from bichot – beaune and pommard 1ers

For me the ‘average’ face of a mid-range 2003 is shown by the Beaune, and that’s the reason you don’t see many notes for 03’s on this page. The Pommard is altogether better, and comes close to being enjoyable!

Medium red, still some hints of cherry. High tones that are reasonably fresh. The tannin is a little drying and the acid is a little sharp – certainly far from seamless.. Not a great balance here.
Rebuy – No
2003 Albert Bichot, Pommard 1er Les Arvelets try to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus red – again with just a hint of cherry-red. The nose is deeper with a savoury, meaty aspect. The acidity is just a little prickly, but this fades with time. The tannins are ripe and there’s decent length and balance.
Rebuy – Maybe
