Chateau de Myrat 1997

Chateau de Myrat – Second Growth Barsac

Bill Blatch: Now we see the influence of a touch of new oak on this very thick-styled wine. If 1996 was the first good vintage of Myrat, then the 97 is the first vintage of finesse as well. Very rich, very dense, beautifully aged now, with a thickness and opulence that override everything…except this touch of freshness of bright acidity and oak that just keep it going on and on and on.
