Lot #270. Monbousquet 1997

Description: Consists of 2 Magnums, 1.5L
Score: 90 RP.
"One of the vintage's superstars, this dark plum/purple-colored 1997 offers flamboyant, explosive aromas of vanillin, cherry jam, licorice, and new oak. Deep, concentrated, rich, and surprisingly chewy, this full-bodied, gorgeously concentrated and proportioned St.-Emilion will be hard to resist young. There is some tannin to be shed, but the wine is so ostentatious, it is impossible to ignore." Wine Advocate #128, Apr 2000
Provenance: The Maestro Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $300
