1997 La Couspaude

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 88.5 points



The 1997 is an exotic, rich, thick, jammy wine with abundant black cherry aromas mixed with scents of roasted coffee, smoke, and toasty new oak. With low acidity, and a delicious, medium-bodied, ostentatious personality, this seductive offering can be drunk now as well as over the next 8-10 years. ||This is one of St.-Emilion's so-called "garage" wines - small cuvees aimed at the luxury marketplace (in this case, 3,000 cases of a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, aged in 100% new French oak, some of which receives the "200%" new oak treatment). Wine Advocate.April, 2000



Seductive young wine. Pretty plum and berry character with a hint of mushroom. Medium-bodied, with lovely, polished tannins and a long, caressing finish. Drink now through 2004. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2000
