Sweet, pretty wine that is light weight, pleasant but far from profound. Has classic DRC elements, a heady nose but there is unevolved or astringent note that reminds me of so many other 1997s, a dullness or stripped quality. From methusalem.
Just a little disjointed showing some sweet and sour elements but was a very satisfying drink, although not a great DRC Ech. It was moderate of weight with notes of moss, compost, beef stock and ginger on the nose. In the mouth there was plenty of mineral character and the sweet fruit had a peppery edge. It finished with a little quinine like bitterness.
Excellent! Drank it with friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. Wonderful!! Decanted for 2 hours and drank for 2 hours. Good until the last drop. Very floraland plumy nose with a pepper under tone. Very elegant. Tannins are so well integrated. Very long and complex finish. Wish I have more.
