"94-96 points Robert Parker. "The thrilling 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Deus-Ex Machina is a candidate for the appellation’s “wine of the vintage.” A barrique-aged blend of Mourvedre and Grenache, it boasts an inky/ruby/purple color as well as explosive ripeness, powerful creme de cassis, raspberry, cherry, melted licorice, smoke, and espresso characteristics, huge body, admirable purity, moderately high tannin, and abundant quantities of glycerin, alcohol, and concentration. This impressive, sumptuous Chateauneuf du Pape will be at its finest between 2007-2020. Kudos to Clos Saint-Jean and oenologist Philippe Cambie for fashioning some of the best wines of the vintage!" "
