Thanks for posting Josh! The 2003 (forgive me for correcting you) that Mike brought certainly caught my attention, as it is one of the handful of examples of 2003 Bdx done perfectly. And from your note, I'm quite encouraged to see that the balance and depth the 2003 offered wasn't a fluke. Puts Canon la Gaffeliere even higher on my radar. And I noted that it was recently elevated to Premier Grand Cru Classe B. Well deserved it seems. The 2003 is on my "to get" list. And might have to check out the 2001 as well!
And BTW, I am proud to be able to say that as of yesterday, with grades submitted, I have survived my first semester as faculty! But next semester is going to be a bear . . . .
