It has a hugely expressive nose of super-ripe black cherries candied plums and violets. Full-bodied and possessing a magnificent breadth of sweet penetrating fruits this is an unbelievably complex wine. It coats the palate with its velvety sweet cherries jammy blackberries and fruit-soaked tannin. Perfectly balanced and seamless this gem has a remarkably long finish. This is a wine of exemplary precision delineation and power with undescribable class and refinement. Projected maturity: 2006-2020.

Vibrant pure spicy distinctly floral and unusually high-toned for the vintage with big powerful and concentrated almost to the point of painful intensity with its super ripe palate staining flavors yet this remains regal... Vibrant pure spicy distinctly floral and unusually high-toned for the vintage with big powerful and concentrated almost to the point of painful intensity with its super ripe palate staining flavors yet this remains regal almost aloof and quite reserved on the hugely long finish. The focus in unbelievable and while it's hard to speak of subtle power one can sense the vibrancy and depths of reserve that are still only hinted at now even eight years after the vintage. As seductive as the nose is and as awe-inspiring as the flavors are the finish lasts literally for minutes indeed I could still taste it the next day and I've noticed that this happens every time I am fortunate to have the '99. And difficult as it is to believe I'm beginning to believe that my score is conservative.

Deep sappy brooding nose dominated by liqueur-like ripeness and oriental spices. Huge yet magically light on its feet; completely unevolved and less showy and sweet today than La Tache but has all the elements for future greatness. The suggestion of green austerity will be transformed into rose petal in 12 to 15 years says de Villaine. The thoroughly ripe suave tannins coat the entire palate.
