DescriptionCorton Charlemagne 1999
"Jean-François says 1999 was quite like 2009 with its generosity of everything. Not yet ready. A big crop. There is even some oak perceptible here. Very chewy still. Nervy, not the roundness of 2000 for example. Still quite introvert. Still a bit jagged. I would not choose to drink this for really quite a while. A bit austere for the moment but obviously a great, great vintage. Very, very fine and classic and superior. So long!" (19+pts JR, Nov 2009)
"The nose explodes from the glass with spice, intense minerality and green apple scents followed by muscular flavors of considerable power underpinned by marvelous cut and a finish that I almost couldn't believe. The balance here is perfect and this is without question one of the finest examples of young Corton-Charlemagne I have ever tasted." (97 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Dec. 2007)
