Burnished ruby that shows the signs of the hot vintage. Pretty aromas of dried flowers, and spices with soft evolved flavors that recall dried fruits. This has good overall length and expressiveness. Although the 1997 can't match the stylishness, elegance and class of the 1998, it does offer very fine drinking right now. The best of the three bottles I've had so far.

Delicious mature wine from a top traditional grower from a hot year. Elegance, concentration, lots of fruit all the way. Love it! Almost as good as the fabulous 1998 and 1999 and definitively more mature .
