Chambertin 1997
    J. Prieur
    6 in owc
    Bottle (7)

    "The dark colored 1997 Chambertin was harvested at a whopping 14.5% natural alcohol. It reveals an exuberant nose of roses and massively ripe red and black fruit. In their youth, Chambertins are generally rather backward and ungiving, yet this powerhouse explodes on the palate with untold layers of sweet cherries and blueberries. Velvety-textured, medium to full-bodied, broad, muscular, yet refined and noble, it is stunning to drink today, and yet should evolve magnificently over the course of the next dozen or so years." (94 pts. Pierre Rovani, Wine Advocate #125, Oct. 1999)

    Estimate: $950 - $1,300.
