Tasting of 1999 2nd growths. "The wine of kings, the king of wines." Red-orange colored edges. Tobacco and ripe plum aromas. Older leathery red fruit flavors, firm tannins, and long warm finish.

Beautifully soft red fruit with just the right level of zip and acid. Yummy.

Solid fruit, brett-heavy, not expecting this 1999 vintage to improve much given cellaring circumstances. Tasted Dec 2014.

(18/20) Сложный аромат чёрных ягод, подкреплённый тонами множества разнообразных специй, нотами табака, кожи и шоколада. Высокая кислотность и ещё слегка вяжущие танины. Отлично!

All you want with a developed Bordeaux. Elegant leather, fruit, cigar and other ripened notes, and just enough acidity. #homesweethome
