Monsieur Rouget suffered a nervous breakdown on 2nd day of harvest, so a certain Uncle vinified the 1997.

So young but wide open and generous already. Pure, sweet never ending fruit but the texture was the most intriguing. Round, silky, voluminous and jello-like.

In a weird spot for me. Oak on the nose with an almost buttery quality

Lights out. Incredibly dense mid palate with brighter berry flavors. Incredible concentration with insane elegance and a nose! Would never guess this to be a hot year.

Ok. Took 2+ hours to open up and show us more than butter and a touch of oak. Opened up into a tart, cran/raz/strawberry monster with tons of acid. Ended up being solid but still not worth the price of admission. Fun wine though.
