« Clos Marie ( Pic Saint Loup ) | Main | Chateau des Estanilles ( Faugères ) »

I shared a bottle of the Pic St. Loup, Bergerie de L'Hortus 2003 at Ajanta on Solano Ave. in Berkeley, CA. It was one of the best wines I have ever tasted. They only had a few left.

The bouquet was warm, hypnotic, satisfying and it left a rich film on the side of the glass (legs?). The flavor was incredibley smooth, like red velvet on the tongue, and it complimented the spicy Indian food very well. It tasted so wonderful, especially right out of the bottle, after only being swirled in the glass for a short time.

But, after only a few hours, the taste changed completely (served in a different glass at home). I am not a wine expert, so I don't know why this happened. It became a bit more rough.

Again, I apologize for my paltry wine vocabulary.
I look forward to trying it next year.

Correction: It was the Grand Cuvee we had at Ajanta.
