Located on the terrace of alluvial gravel bordering the river. The "Village de La Lagune" was a tenant farm in its place and gradually transformed into a wine-growing estate. Dark purple with red fruits spice, cedar and flinty aromas. On the palate blackberry and cherry flavors with cedar, cacao, tobacco and leather notes. Fine sweet tannins, well balanced on long finish ending with fruit, spice and earthy mineral notes. Nice! — 4 days ago

So, the owner of K&L Wine Merchants - Clyde Beffa has made a living finding good 1997 Bordeaux’s after the fact in a difficult vintage. It is these kinds of buys ($17.99) that have keep me from opening other more prestigious wines too early in my early years of collecting. He still bats 1000.
If you always open your wines too early, let this be an opportunity to try wines on their longer evolution. You won’t be sorry.
Snap peas & zucchini from the garden this week.
Excellent with the rib covers steak.

Black cherry, earth, leather, and truffle on the nose. On the palate, red and black cherry, earth, leather, are accompanied by medium tannins that are well integrated at this point, but still quite present. Long finish goes on for over a minute.
