Description

91 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“This 1999 is deep ruby/purple-colored, with a striking perfume of black cherries, truffles, cedar, and vanilla. This layered, opulently-textured wine displays extraordinary purity, elegance, and finesse. It is a classic Bordeaux with superb palate presence that builds incrementally on the palate. The finish is long, with plenty of sweet tannin. Very impressive! Three thousand cases of the 1999 were made from a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Last year it seemed to reveal an element of dilution, but as always, the truth is in the bottle, and presently there is no evidence of lightness or liquidity.” (4/2002) Robert Parker

91 Neal Martin
“Tasted from bottle at Mark Walford’s annual lunch at Waterside Inn. The ‘99 Pomerol wines are in a good place at the moment. The VCC has a generous bouquet with ripe red fruit, hints of incense, rosemary and mint that lend it lift and freshness. The palate is medium-bodied and very harmonious, almost mellow. It is very focused with silky smooth tannins and hints of orange peel towards the elegant finish. What a lovely, natural Pomerol wine…” (07/2013)
