St. Julien, Bordeaux, France. 12.5%
Rich, low acid, quite sweet, with mocha smoky oak. A bit Californian. Very easy to enjoy.
Certainly 1999 is a low acid vintage, but I’ve yet to encounter any wines that show adverse dilution because of the late rain – perhaps I’ve picked carefully, but 1999 is a great vintage for drinking now and over the next 5 years.
