1999 Chambertin


97Average Score
flagBurgundy / France

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. Aug 2001, www.robertparker.com
