Medoc, Clos Manou 2003

A new star of the northern Medoc! This small, garagiste-type estate turned out a powerful, concentrated and seamless 2003 that's never before seen in the appellation. Rare and very limited availability.

"A limited production (500+ cases), impeccably made effort, Clos Manou emerges from the northern Medoc, not far from the village of Saint-Christoly. The blend tends to be around 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot. The drop-dead gorgeous 2003 is better than many of the vintage's "big" names. An opaque ruby/purple hue is accompanied by scents of blackberries, blueberries, espresso roast, minerals, and white flowers. This stunning wine may be even better than my tasting notes suggest. Remarkably, it possesses 13.6% alcohol, which is unusually high for a Medoc, even in 2003. Enjoy this prodigious effort over the next 10-15 years." 93/100 Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate
