Recent 2003 Chateauneufs have performed poorly (Boisrenard and Chapoutier Barbe Rac for example have developed into bottles of raisin juice) so I've begun to get a little concerned about the vintage. This wine allays any fears I had (course at $159 a bottle on prearrival it should be very fine). I tried a bottle of this soon after release and while the potential was undoubtedly present then the level of intrusive tannin gave me a bit of pause. Now the tannin - while still present - has smoothed out. Lacy quite feminine aromatics of milky raspberry and espresso with traces of chocolate, rare beef, and garrigue. Excellent acidity and length. Distinctly espresso flavored. Label claims the wine is 15% alcohol. Its probably higher but one can't taste any heat at all. The wine is clean and thankfully avoids the residual sugar disease that plagues many big wines made today. Tough to find a better Chateauneuf.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
