Bois de Boursan Chateauneuf du Pape, 2003

For Easter, we had a repeat of my birthday meal: lamb chops crusted with a garlic/anchovy paste topped with lemon/garlic/mint and capers, That worked well with Chateauneuf du Pape so I had no problem going back to that combination,

Brick red color. Light but bright. Bouquet of red and black fruits, tobacco, garrigue. Even better on palate: fresh red berries, peppery spice, Plenty fresh, gets better with each sip. 2003 was an overly warm vintage in the Southern Rhone but this shows no sign of over-ripeness.
