St. Emilions, Bordeaux
"This estate typically produces muscular, tannic St.-Emilions, but recent vintages have revealed more charm and texture. The 2003 is hard as a rock, but it reveals good weight and ripeness as well as plenty of earthy, black cherry, and spice characteristics. This austere, muscular Cadet-Piola lacks charm and suppleness, but makes up for those defects with a dense, concentrated, structured style." - Rated 88, Robert Parker
"Blackberry and plum character follows through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a light finish. Delicate wine. Best after 2008. 1,500 cases made. –JS" Rated 87, Wine Spectator
