About

97

"The 1997 Coteaux du Layon St.-Lambert Clos des Bonnes Blanches Ambroisie is sweet, dense, and complex. It has a brownish, amber color, aromas of cherries bathed in molasses, and a jellied texture. Cumin, saffron, and loads of other assorted spices are intertwined with viscous red, white, and yellow fruit compotes. It saturates the palate with sugar (420 grams per liter!). Attempting to taste this "wine" is akin to putting a spoonful of honey in your mouth. Projected maturity: now-2006."
