Lovely Bordeaux, this Pauillac is now celebrating 20 years and is at its peak. The 1999 vintage was a cool classical vintage and the wine is more classic and reserve than some of the recent warmer vintages. The nose is rich and complex with clear notes of coffee, tobacco, oak, black current, graphite, dry herbs and dark fruits, full body with smooth lightly dry tannins and a long finish. The wine is drinking beautifully now and regretfully it was my last from this vintage. My score 91, drink to 2021

Having lunch with Greg Lambrecht, creator or Coravin system, for a baseline tasting. Will revisit in 6 months. This wine was just for drinking though. :)

Sublime Bordeaux enjoyed in the company of friends as part of a 2005 vertical tasting.
To me this was top notch —- needed to open up some but after a bit it was truly fabulous

On termine en beauté la soirée avec un grand vin, complexe, élégant, souple, du velours. Les grands Pauillac prennent au bout de 15 ans des arômes superbes, faut savoir être patient!

My pal Dave is a great host. Everyone talks about cigars leather and earth in this stuff. And they’re right!

Just as Tom Cruise felt when he opened that Caribbean bar, this juice just exudes exotic. From perfume to the long finish....its intoxicating.
