after opening a 98 of this wine in May and being extremely disappointed (will open another to determine bottle specific issues or not) this 97 was a revalation...purchased from Christophe at the winery in summer of 98 this bottle has traveled from France to my flat in London and finally SF...and tasted solid. A lighter style from this vintage (but ok with me as I am not the big international style guy that Janasse achieves in warmer years) but good integration and really good secondary flavors...a bit thin but nevertheless enjoyable. I hope my next bottle of 98 impresses!
