This 1999 is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, and 18% Cabernet Franc. The saturated purple-colored 1999 displays a dense, flamboyant bouquet of roasted herbs, cedar, cassis, new saddle leather, and espresso. It is soft, seductive, velvety-textured, and endearing in a concentrated, lush style. It will provide enjoyment for 15-16 years. It is a top effort for the vintage. (RP)
Aromatic. Refreshing (though not green) nose on a relatively ripe, fleshy body. Very appealing package, though the acidity is notable. Quite firm.
Medium red-ruby. Reticent nose hints at cassis, griotte cherry, leather and licorice. Denser and sweeter than the Armailhac today, with less expressive fruit but more volume and structure. Here the tannins seem obviously riper than those of the 2001. (ST)
Yummy aromas of ripe plum and flowers follow through to a medium body, with soft and silky tannins and a light finish. (JS, Web-2010)
