Ratings & Tasting Notes:
95 pts. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “While only microscopic quantities were produced of this wine, It is an immense wine of extraordinary concentration and depth. The compelling 1997 Reserve Claret offers an opaque purple color in addition to a sumptuous bouquet of sweet blackberries, creme de cassis, and minerals, superb richness, exceptional concentration, and huge body. However, it manages to avoid being overbearing or unmanageable. Purity and delineation are also present in this multi-dimensional, prodigious wine. Although an infant in terms of development, it is accessible because of the ripe tannin and spectacularly-concentrated fruit.”
Stored in a climate controlled cellar on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 75% humidity since purchase.
Flawless. Perfect fill level, label and wine clarity.
