Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers, Dominique Laurent 1997

It is nice to have a wine of fine quality ready to drink at an early age. I guess this is the advantage of 1997.

Pale reddish center moving into lighter rims.

Very aromatic appealing ripe Burgundy nose focusing on black cherries, mild spice and a consistent combination of both.

Minutes later and some more soft fruity aromas develop with a buttery texture and topped with mild vanilla. The nose is complex and seems to last a very long time. Lingering on the act of smelling before tasting is simply a pleasure when it comes to this wine. Thirty minutes later and the nose keeps developing. – wow!!

In the mouth the wine is full-bodied, ripe filled with red cherry flavors and topped with a black cherry liquer, complimenting spice and the perfect amount of acidity. The acidity of this fine wine will guarantee its development into an even more complex Cazetiers even five years from now.

A great wine to enjoy now through 2010.

Tasted January 3rd 2006.

I was taught to finish what I order.

Life taught me to order what I enjoy.

The art of living taught me to take my time and enjoy.
