Ripe yet very pure fruit that is elegant and quite fine with rather forward, precise and punchy medium weight flavors of real complexity and class. This is on the lighter side compared to a classic vintage of Roty Charmes weight yet the detail and complexity are remarkable for the vintage. It is certainly approachable now but will clearly benefit from another 3 to 5 years of cellar time. In short, this is a terrific effort for the vintage.

Deep red. Perfumed, nuanced aromas of cherry, faded rose, woodsmoke and bacon fat. Tighter and less showy than the last two bottles, but displayed sappy, intense red fruit flavors with aeration. A rarity: a '97 with real finesse. Finishes very long and juicy, with unusually supple tannins for this wine, from some of the oldest vines on the Cote de Nuits.
