Description

Chateau Margaux 1997
Wonderful condition bottle, great level right into the neck, tight capsule and a nice label.

95 points Neal Martin for Robert Parkers Wine Advocate:
"The best of the First Growth 97s. A limpid, garnet/ruby core with ruby rim. The nose is exquisite with great delineation and purity with much more vigour that the other Firsts. Mint, blackberries, violets and blueberries all leap from the glass, oblivious to the fact that they stem from a poor vintage. The palate has a slightly voluptuous feel to it, rounded black fruits, raspberry, cassis, tobacco, graphite and a touch of Asian spice towards the finish. Sheer class. A superb success for Paul Pontallier in a difficult vintage. Drink now-2025. Tasted September 2006" (07/08)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Medium red-ruby. Confectionary aromas of raspberry, cocoa powder, mocha and sexy oak; more evolved than either the '99 or '98, even considering its extra year of age. Fat, sweet and harmonious; offers lovely balance but just misses out on the density and depth of a great year. Finishes with firm but very suave tannins; this must be one of the longest '97s." (May/June 00)

90 points Robert Parker: "Undoubtedly a success for the vintage, this immensely charming, dark ruby/purple-coloured wine exhibits floral, black currant, and smoky, toasty oak aromas. There is admirable richness, excellent ripeness, not a great deal of density, or superb concentration, but plenty of finesse, suppleness, and character. It can be drunk young, or cellared for 12-15 years." (04/00) ETA: Late Fall 2009.
