Wine Description

(1999 Vintage) "The 1999 has put on weight since I tasted it last year. It is a sexy, open-knit, deep ruby-colored effort, exhibiting a smoky nose of melted asphalt, truffles, cassis, and tobacco, enticing sweetness on the attack, low acidity, and a smoky, ripe rich finish. Along with the 2000, 1999 is one of the two finest La Tour-Haut Brions produced under the new owners, who acquired the estate in 1983. Drink this captivating, complex Graves over the next 10-15 years."-Wine AdvocateChâteau La Tour-Haut-Bri...

    Bright red-ruby. Roasted plum, cherry and tobacco on the nose, along with a suggestion of mocha. Rather gentle and soft for this wine, with lovely mid-palate sweetness. Very merlot in style. Finishes with fairly substantial tongue-coating tannins, but this pliant wine should also offer relatively early drinkability. Pomerol
