Wine Description

(1999 Vintage) "The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Chaignots has roasted blackberry, cassis, and stone-like scents. It is dense, velvety-textured, and packed with blueberries and blackberries. This charming, sweet, supple wine also possesses an incredibly pure and soft finish....89-91" WA 06/01

    (1999 Vintage) Rating: 92/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 101, March/April 2002. ($75-$95) Full ruby-red. Floral, vibrant aromas of red fruits, currant, flowers and tobacco. Very intensely flavored but tightly wound; firm acidity gives this creamy wine excellent vinosity and considerable power. Exotic hint of orange. Densely packed, lively and very long on the back end. Should age for a long time.
