Description
'Nineteen ninety-nine was a gift from the Gods: a vintage both plentiful and successful: not only of high quality but consistent geographically and hierarchically ... Harmony is the key to longevity. When it is supported by good structure, the time-span, the window of opportunity, can be much more extended than we expect. All good reds of a good vintage, plus most of the whites of premier cru level and above, require ten years to show their paces. This is very true of the 1999s. As you will see, there are very few disappointing wines. To those who possess stocks of the vintage, I say: yes, you can start drinking, but don't be in too much of a hurry to empty your bins. There are plenty of bottles which will still be in a vigorous prime in 2019.' (Clive Coates MW, clive-coates.com, 2009)
