The 1999 Chambertin is a magnificent, show-stopping wine. It is black-colored and bursts from the glass with licorice, cookie dough, blackberry and cassis liqueur aromas. This is a massive, full-bodied wine with loads of sweet candied black fruits, licorice, freshly laid asphalt, spice, fresh herbs, and toasty oak flavors. It is mind-numbingly powerful, conquering the taster with wave upon wave of supple, syrup-like fruit whose flavors last throughout its seemingly unending finish. This blockbuster Burgundy should be cellared for a minimum of 10 years and may last up to 20 or more years after that. It is one of the rare wines from this region that I would have no qualms about cellaring for 30 years.||Bernard Dugat's parcel of Chambertin is planted at 1400 vines per acre and averages 80 years of age. No tractor can penetrate this densely planted parcel, so Bernard Dugat, his wife, daughter, and son are forced to do all the work by hand. Wine Advocate.August, 2001
