91 points, $42
Lots of dark berry and licorice fruit, with a silky texture despite its weight. Quite toasty and tarry on the finish, with a slightly firm feel, but plenty of fruit for a hedonistic experience. Drink now through 2011. 4,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

MARQUIS D'ANGERVILLE Volnay Clos des Ducs 2003
90 points, $80
This has notes of plum, milk chocolate and spice, with dense yet polished tannins leaving a grainy effect accentuating the chocolate. Terrific length on the finish, with a burst of fruit and spice. This needs time. Best from 2008 through 2018. 500 cases m —Bruce Sanderson

VINCENT GIRARDIN Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2003
90 points, $50
Ripe cherry, pomegranate and wild berry aromas and flavors highlight this dense red. The tannins are a bit grainy, yet there's plenty of fruit to match and a mineral element that gives it dimension. Fine length and vibrance. Best from 2007 through 2015. 1 —Bruce Sanderson

LOUIS JADOT Pommard Clos de la Commaraine 2003
90 points, $55
This starts out earthy, yet there's a core of cherry and chocolate underneath and dense tannins. Despite it's earthiness there's a sense of gracefulness and the fruit really hangs in. Give this some time. Best from 2008 through 2018. 102 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson

92 points, $70
Mixed red and dark berry fruit, along with plenty of dark cocoa, mineral and tar notes. Muscular finish shows more pepper, tobacco and structure, with fresh acidity too. Best from 2007 through 2020. 470 cases made. —James Molesworth
