1997 Domaine Stéphane Aladame, Montagny 1er Crutry to find this wine...
(Magnum) Pale yellow coloured. The nose is high-toned – plenty of ripe fruit yet remains quite fresh. Good fruit with nice enough acidity – a successful wine.
Rebuy – Yes
1997 Jean-Yves Devevey, Hautes Côtes de Beaune, Les Chagnotstry to find this wine...
(Magnum) Pale yellow. The nose is unusual, lots of peardrops and just a little sickly to me. The palate, however, is has plenty of acidity that is not perfectly refined but there’s plenty of dimension and good length. A bit of a Curate’s Egg.
Rebuy – No
1997 Louis Jadot, Auxey Duressestry to find this wine...
Pale yellow. A deep oaky nose. Lots of dimension on the palate and quite some depth too. The acidity is just a little spiky, but this is serious and very interesting – oh and tasty too!
Rebuy – Yes
