Exhibiting a saturated black/purple color, the 1997, produced from old vines and low yields, requires 4-5 years of cellaring (atypical of the vintage). It boasts superb flavors of cassis, blackberries, minerals, licorice, and new oak. Intense, powerful, and backward, this is a classic, long-lived Bordeaux made in an uncompromising fashion. A blockbuster effort. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2015+. RMP 90 pts
