The beautiful silky 1999 Elevage (a blend of 74% Merlot 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc) possesses a complex bouquet of currants black cherries caramel and mocha. The wine is lush elegant and opulently-textured as well as delicate and nuanced. This Merlot-based offering deserves considerable attention. Enjoy it over the next 10-12 years. This stylish sophisticated effort might be compared to a graceful feminine-styled Bordeaux such as a cru classe from Margaux. I admire it for its subtlety. Additionally it possesses beautiful fruit outstanding purity and a graceful personality.
