2003 Tour de Mirambeau Cuvée Passion

Here is some interesting information I found about the wine.

And here is what Parker had to say;

"The 2003 Tour de Mirambeau Cuvee Passion, a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, enjoys malolactic in barrel, upbringing on its lees, and virtually no clarification at bottling. It possesses a dense ruby/purple color, low acidity, great fruit on the attack, mid-palate, and finish, and a long, lush, heady aftertaste. This stunning effort must be tasted to be believed. It should drink well for 5-10 years. It is natural to focus on the great Bordeaux estates that sell for the highest prices, but Bordeaux desperately needs more producers like the Despagnes to produce wines such as this since more than 90% of the entire viticultural area is generic appellations such as Bordeaux and Bordeaux Superieur. Bravo!"

Vintage wines are generally bottled in a single batch so that each bottle will have a similar taste. Climate can have a big impact on the character of a wine to the extent that different vintages from the same vineyard can vary dramatically in flavor and quality.
