▼ Bottle Information ▼
A very ripe and somewhat toasty nose that displays hints of underlying vegetal notes leads to round, ripe and rich flavors that culminate in a distinctly bitter aftertaste that was borderline unpleasant. 1997 was a transitional phase for the domaine and it’s clear that this isn’t one of their successes, especially compared to the superb wines that Jean-Louis is crafting now. In short, not for me.
