three (more) blancs from 1997


1997 Morey-Blanc, Saint Aubin 1er Combestry to find this wine...
Medium yellow. The nose is understated and high-toned. The palate isn’t! Waxy, deep and softly concentrated. The acidity is not so well integrated but this remains a very enjoyable wine.
Rebuy – Maybe
1997 Hubert Lamy, Saint Aubin 1er En Remillytry to find this wine...
(Magnum) Medium yellow. The nose is nicely wide and shows more than a touch of brioche. The palate is wide and fresh with particularly good integration of the acidity – plenty of mid-palate density too. Very nice wine whatever the vintage.
Rebuy – Yes
1997 Patrick Javillier, Meursault Cuvée Tête de Murgertry to find this wine...
(Magnum) Medium yellow. The nose is very understated – tight even – but quite round. The palate seems to mirror the nose with a very narrow entry though quickly it opens out into the mid-palate. The acidity is not bad, contributing to to a good savoury length. Today the tightness gives this the impression that it lacks character, but there are no obvious faults. Leave for a couple of years and re-try.
Rebuy – Maybe
