Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1997

Honey-brioche and almond extract commingle with orange blossom, crystalline honey, light maple syrup and butter, marmalade with aromatic musk. The warm flavors of mouth-coating, unctuous citrus defy comparison, but evocative of marmalade hard candy, candied oranges, tangerine, clementine, nectarine, dried apricot, Meyer lemon essences, and baked apple and yellow pear. Golden; delicious.

Château de la Maltroye

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 1997

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Gold and hazy. Past its peak but still intriguing. Moldy and faded on the nose with oxidative and hazelnut notes. A little fresher on the palate with present acidity and lemon and pear. Some interesting tannins that dry out the tung. Could have been quite impressive 6 years ago. #chassagnemontrachet #chateaudelamaltroye #1997 #agedwhiteburgundy — 8 years ago

Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg Auslese Riesling 1997

Ah, yes, the wonderful world of #magnums...what a fabulous wine even in a 750ml, but magnums seem to bring out a very special dimension of complexity in older wines--this #Abtsberg #Auslese was phenomenal with seafood as well as all by itself--a truly epic bottle! #1997 #Rieling #Mosel #MaximGrünhäuser — 9 years ago

Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

After 21 years, this wine still has plenty of good dark fruits left and is still going strong with more life ahead. After pouring into our glasses, the strength of the wine has calmed down, and we can see how elegant this wine is. This one is for a special occasion.

Rauenthaler Rheingau Kabinett Riesling 1997

The #German #dry wine industry has learned a lot in the past two decades and one aspect is how to deal with #Rieslings innately high acidity. #1997 was a very fine year throughout the various regions, but this is drying out and was clearly not intended for long-term aging in excess of 10 years.
It made a decent partner to food, but not as a straight sipping wine. A modest amount of residual sugar would have created a more balanced wine.

'S' Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil Brut Chardonnay 1997

Still young as a baby after 18 years of cellaring! Only just developing honey and tertiary aromas. A palpable development in the glass from tight and stern to full-bodied and ample. Orange blossom, yeasty, again honey. A woodied, complex, extremely rewarding after taste. Like another user said it is not about bubbles but about intense aroma and profound flavour. This is clearly an ULTIMATE sensorial experience from a house that has released only 37 editions in 85 years. @WineTraining #salon #champagne #blancdeblancs #1997 @Dusan Bradanovich — 8 years ago
