2003 wasa a very hot summer in Europe and many wines reflected that heat. At age 16, this wine is ripe and sweet but does not seem to be hurt by the heat. In fact, it was delicious and has matured beautifully. Still has years to go. Light golden in color. The nose has minerals, slight peach, slight simple syrup and is very clean (no petrol). On the palate, this is viscous and slightly sweet. Nice peach and minerals notes. Decent not great acidity. It was paried with a roasted beet salad with deep fried goat cheese croutons and that was an excellent match.
