1997 La Tour, Clos de Vougeot Vieilles VignesMar. 2004
Deep ruby colour, almost no fading at the rim. Lovely deep nose of meat, red and black cherry and little coffee, just a little (slightly worrying) woody note too. Gorgeous fat palate which was both meaty and fruity. Really super concentration, good acidity and fine tannins – but unfortunately cork taint started to dominate . . . . Based on this bottle I will be looking at this domaine much more closely.
