One of the vintage's superstars, this dark plum/purple-colored 1997 offers flamboyant, explosive aromas of vanillin, cherry jam, licorice, and new oak. Deep, concentrated, rich, and surprisingly chewy, this full-bodied, gorgeously concentrated and proportioned St.-Emilion will be hard to resist young. There is some tannin to be shed, but the wine is so ostentatious, it is impossible to ignore. (RP)
Medium-dark red. Currant, raspberry, smoke and truffle, plus a note of roasted coffee. Supple and sweet but fresh in the mouth; will rely more on its firm tannins than its soft acidity for longevity. Finishes with persistent cherry and currant fruit. (ST)
Well-crafted for '97, with cherry, berry and spice character. Medium-bodied, with polished tannins and a fruity finish. (JS)
