The sweet perfume, talcum powder, freshly cut flower, and candied cherry-scented 1999 Clos Vougeot (domaine) is a chewy-textured, medium to full-bodied wine. This dense ('This is the densest wine we produced in 1999,' said Pierre-Henri Gagey), powerful, and intense wine has loads of blackberry and cassis liqueur-like fruit that is intermingled with magnificently sweet tannin. Its impressively long finish reveals additional layers of candied fruits. Drink it between 2005 and 2012+. (PR)
Bright red-ruby. Deep aroma of raspberry, flowers, tobacco and sweet oak, along with a suggestion of medicinal cherry. Dense, rich, chewy and deep, but still rather tightly wound. Very solidly structured but not hard. Finishes firmly tannic and impressively long.
Still quite austere and borderline rustic but with much better density and the quality of the tannins is finer if still somewhat robust and chewy. There are reserved notes of earth, spice, and anise on the nose with large scaled, powerful and rich flavors of excellent length. Not especially elegant but I agree with Lardière who commented that 'there is plenty of wine here'.
Tough wine, with a touch of balsamic vinegar character. Also shows black cherries and cherry pit character. Tough finish. A bit tart. (Web 2002)
