-Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide No 7

This deep ruby/purple-colored 1999 has some tannin to resolve, but it is an elegant, medium-bodied, delicious effort that will reward readers who have the patience to cellar it for several years. It is not a blockbuster in the style of the 2000 or 1996, but the 1999 offers charming roundness, sweet cassis fruit, excellent purity, and fine overall balance. It should last for 16+ years.

There is a little more lift and definition on the nose compared to the Lynch Bages. Black dusty fruits, a touch of cedar, antique bureau, mint and dried blood. The palate is full-bodied with firm tannins, good density, touch of bitterness in the mid-palate, very foursquare towards the finish that has a slightly ferrous edge. This is a stout, sturdy GPL that should drink well for a few years but will never thrill like say the 1982 or the 2006. Drink 2010-2020. Tasted June 2009.
