My language and ability to pull nuances is still really unsophisticated, so the best description I can give on the first impression is that it is indeed very young, since it didn't taste very...full...to me? Not sure exactly how to describe it. Very simple and just not much "meat" to it.
However, I just poured a bit more, and having let it sit has benefited it I think. Stronger and fuller, both on the nose and the palate. Maybe I taste black cherries?
Sorry...this must be terribly offensive to those of you who know what you're doing!!

James, which 2003 CndP did you open. Robin and others are on record of saying that the southern Rhone faired much better than the northern Rhone, and I think there is probably some validity in that assessment. But since my wine budget is of finite boundaries, I so far have been careful to not buy 2003's from any of France. I will likely miss out on a lot of good wines, but I am going on the premise that I have enough wine that I can wait on the 2004's.
