Two Camhis are better than one as Howard Camhi comes back for more: Riesling, Savennières, Burgundy and Bordeaux (My place.): Jay whips this out and announces that it was a gift from a mysterious stranger he bumped into in the confined quarters of the Chelsea Wine storage lockers. Somehow this stranger was under the impression that I'm a fan of this wine. Now, I've liked the '95 best of the Trie Speciale bottlings, but those bottlings are my least favorite in the Baumard Savennières lineup because of the malolactic fermentation they go through which gives the wines a plush, creamy mouthfeel while softening the acidic spine the other bottlings show. The '97 shows that clearly. Additionally, while there's pleasant quince, bitter almond, yellow floral tones and mineral present, there's also too much alcohol showing, which was a concern a number of us Loireheads had about many '97 whites on release. The alcohol was even more disjointed and obvious the next day when I went back to it. B.
