Dark, youthful red. Classic, somewhat sauvagearomas of black raspberry, game and roast coffee, plus a hint of menthol. Utterly silky but energetic wine with superb concentration for this high-yielding vintage. Flavors of plum, dark berries, spices and menthol convey lovely subtle intensity and terrific definition. Really vibrates on the long, rising finish, with ripe tannins saturating the entire mouth. This wine still has a long life ahead of it; in fact, I'd hold it for a couple more years. Jean-Louis Trapet told me that 1999 was his tenth vintage and that at the time he was vinifying "with only a tiny bit of whole clusters." And he noted that it took until the following harvest for this wine to finish its malolactic fermentation. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, March 2018)

Can’t help but like it bit a little too new world for me, especially considering it’s 99!

BYOB. Brilliant. Dark red ruby color and loads of crushed black cherries and raspberries.
