Vieux Chateau Saint André 2003

89 points

Montagne Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux, France. 13.5%

A good example of what can be good about the 2003 vintage. This wine is very 2003 in the sense of raisin ripe, but dry, not sweet, baked fruit. But accepting this vintage style, it is a rich and approachable wine. The heat of 2003 has given more stuffing than usual, including more (soft ripe) tannins. Drink now and over the next 3 years. V.good value.
