Bussola Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2003  (#333019)

Other Red Blends from Veneto, Italy

[ 92 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2003 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a highly unusual wine of freakish dimensions. Bussola fans will recall that the estate released its 2004 Amarones last year. This 2003 Amarone took almost five years to finish fermenting; in fact one tank was at the tail end of fermentation when I visited the estate in April 2009! This is an exotic Amarone that captures an almost port-like expression of fruit while remaining light on its feet. There is plenty of clarity and detail in the dark fruit, flowers and minerals that waft from the glass. Despite its ripeness and richness, this remains a medium-bodied, accessible Amarone perfect for near-term drinking. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2023.

Huet Vouvray Le Mont Moelleux 1ere Trie 2003  (#332662)

Dessert Wine from Vouvray, Loire, France

[ 97+ points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): The 2003 Vouvray Le Mont Moelleux Première Trie shows a brillant dark golden color with apricot-yellow reflections. Very clear, intense and elegant on the nose, where coffee, toast, brioche, nougat and flinty flavors intertwine with super ripe apricot, licorice and lemon zest aromas, this is a very sweet, extraordinary rich, highly concentrated but also elegant and piquant moelleux with a stunning purity and freshness in the mouthwatering, salty finish. This is a very sweet but remarkably elegant and finesse-full Le Mont whose purity and mineral finish will be mind-blowing in some decades. The 2003 is still too young to be drunk this or during the next decade (if you are lucky to own older Huets, otherwise you won't be hurt by drinking a first better today). Compared to Le Haut-Lieu, Le Mont is more focused and defined, less sensual than intellectual maybe. In its elegance, finesse and balance, this 2003 reminds me of the 1945 Le Haut Lieu. But to reach the almost perfect score of the latter, the 2003 has still a long way to age. Drink: 2030-2070.

Cathiard Vosne-Romanee 1er cru Aux Malconsorts 2003  (#116383)

Pinot Noir from Vosne-Romanée, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France

[ 'Outstanding' and 90-93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): (from a .74 ha parcel of 35 year old vines) Stylistically, this is quite similar to the Suchots but the flavor profile delivers more size, weight, punch, power and structure with wonderfully deep, muscular and sappy flavors plus there is real lift on the notably long finish. This is reference standard stuff, particularly so for the vintage as no one makes better Malconsorts. Drink: 2013+.
