1997 J Schram Late Disgorged 150th Anniversary (1 x 750 ml)
With almost 15 years of contact on the yeast, in the bottle, in our historic Diamond Mountain Caves, this sparkling wine has developed exquisite richness, depth and complexity. Extensive aging "en tirage" enables savory, nutty and seasoned attributes to evolve with fruitful caramelization, density and creaminess on the palate. With great enthusiasm, we present this one-of-a-kind offering of our Chardonnay-based tete de cuvée, J. Schram, blended from the best of our Chardonnay vineyards. A limited number of bottles of this wine are being made available to celebrate this special year in our history.
Bursting with youthful vitality, the 1997 J. Schram LD shows vibrant aromas of baked green apple, lime and crystallized pineapple. Aromatic depth is further accentuated by refined, aged notes of marzipan, celery salt, crème brûlée, and freshly baked baguette. Crisp and refined on entry, exhibiting generous fruitful flavors of peach, green apple and mandarin orange, the palate finishes with a long, lingering acidity. The 1997 J. Schram LD can certainly be enjoyed now, but will continue to develop and build character for many years to come.- Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
