2003 Wine and Port

2003 Wine Vintage Report

2003 Vintage Port :

A general declaration of vintage. Classic Vintage Port. The 2003 port vintage has great traditional tannic structure with attractive ripe fruit flavours.

2003 Italian :

2003 Piedmont: As elsewhere, the heat wave shrivelled grapes and resulted in some unbalanced musts although the oldest vines in Barolo and Barbaresco managed to withstand the weather and yield some exceptional wines. 2003 Tuscany: Very difficult heat wave conditions were felt in all but the highest vineyards of Chianti Classico. Wines generally pretty unbalanced.

2003 Bordeaux :

2003 Bordeaux: The hot summer months of June and July, followed by an August heatwave, set the Bordeaux 2003 wine vintage apart from recent years. On tasting, the tannins are rather prominent in many wines. Many of the wines, particularly on the left bank are very 'new world in style, frequently displaying super-ripe blackberry, plum and cherry characteristics. Sauternes also showed well, with a number having very good freshness alongside a rich weight of residual sugar and botrytis.
