Grand Tasting

 In the Grand European Jury Wine Tasting of 1997, the Grand Jury Européen, consisting entirely of European judges, conducted a blind tasting of 27 Chardonnay wines from seven countries. Held in Bordeaux, 70 percent of the entries in the wine competition were from France. All other countries were represented with one entry each, except for Australia, which had two.

The French wine entries were "a regular Hall of White Burgundy Fame. They had such great vineyards and outstanding producers as Meursault Charmes from Domaine Comtes Lafon and Meursault Perrières from Domaine Coche-Dury." In addition, "Various hyphenated grand cru Montrachets showed up: two Chevalier-Montrachets, one from Bouchard Père et Fils, the other from Louis Jadot. Other grands crus included a Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet from Olivier Leflaive and two Corton-Charlemagnes. Two Montrachets were present as well, from Marquis de Laguiche and Domaine Jacques Prieur".

In addition, there was Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes from Domaine Sauzet, Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles Domaine Leflaive, and Chablis Grand Cru Valmur from that district’s most acclaimed producer, Domaine Francois Raveneau.
