1997 Bourriquot, Havens

1997 Bourriquot, Havens
A brilliant, perfectly mature Napa wine made up of two-thirds Cabernet Franc and one-third Merlot. The nose is deep, round and intoxicating with notes of warm tiles, red and black currants, fresh stables, leather and a hint of mint. Very, very fine.
The taste is seamless, perfectly balanced and mature with notes of red and black currants, gravel, tobacco and band aid. Long and refined. Lovely.
The last bottle out of three bought twenty years ago in London.
95p   (tasted 2020/06)
