Scores and tasting notes
The ruby-colored 1997 Grands-Echezeaux offers red and black raspberry liqueur aromas. It is a medium-to-full-bodied, oily-textured wine that possesses good power and density. Smoked bacon, sweet wax, and spices are found in the fat, plump, seductive offering. Drink it over the next 6-8 years. Importer: Wilson-Daniels, St. Helena, CA; tel (707) 963-9661.
