"With the superlative 1999 vintage, Louis Jadot, one of the top Burgundy négociants, has been able to produce a deep, dense purple-colored wine. With firm tannins over huge black chocolate and sweet figs and huge layers of acidity, it has great shape and structure, worthy of the vintage. A big, chunky wine with enormous presence, rounded out by the wood."
"Medium red. Highly nuanced nose combines bitter cherry, rose petal, wild mushroom, marzipan and resiny oak. Silky and seamless but almost painfully young today. A very concentrated, chewy, powerful wine with terrific underlying fruit. Finishes long and subtle, with perfumed fruit outlasting the firm tannins."
