Highly complex nose combines black fruits gibier truffle road tar licorice and leather. Very intense and spicy but still tightly wound with a firm acid spine keeping the flavors under wraps. "Very interior wine today" notes Perrin. But one already senses the incipient complexity. Finishes with building tannins a note of caramel and terrific persistence. This will need time. 92(+?) points

The prodigious 1999 Beaucastel boasts aromas of blackberry fruit intermixed with cassis licorice roasted meats leather and truffles. While it does not possess much fat or precociousness it displays definition and elegance. This is a full-bodied concentrated classic Beaucastel. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025.
