While there is noticeable reduction, it does not materially impede the amazing nose that explodes from the glass with spice, intense minerality and green apple scents. The '99 is a huge wine with muscular flavors of remarkable power that are underpinned by marvelous cut and an overtly austere finish of such length that I almost couldn't believe it. The balance here is perfect and this is without question one of the finest examples of Corton-Charlemagne that I have ever tasted. While this is very close to arriving at its apogee I would hold for another two years or so and drink over the next 20 as this is going to be a very long-term wine. Multiple and consistent notes.

Extraordinarily rich and penetrating; a wine of great sappy verve and lift, still quite tightly wrapped but not at all hard or tough. Finishes with palate-staining persistence and great purity of flavor. Has the sheer grip and near-perfect balance of the greatest grand cru white Burgundies. Those collectors lucky enough to latch onto a bottle or two of this elixir should give it ten years or so before pulling the cork.

(WA92-93 points) As Jean-Francois Coche served his 1999 Corton Charlemagne, he said, "This wine will go far, as it is very, very young." It reveals ripe white fruits and a powerful spice component in its aromatics. On the palate, this medium to full-bodied wine is fresh, super-ripe, and expansive. Sweet apples, pears, and a myriad of spices coat the taster's palate and take it hostage for about a minute after it has been spit out. It is an extraordinarily long-finishing wine that is a tribute to Coche's talents, skills, and hard work. - Pierre Rovani
