International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 102

Medium ruby. Expressive aromas of black raspberry, Cuban tobacco and grilled nuts; a bit more red fruit in character than either the 2000 or the 2001. Silky, seamless and enveloping, but the wine's excellent vinosity gives its creamy fruit very good definition. Consistent from start to finish. Tannins are substantial but fine, allowing the fruit and floral flavors to linger impressively. Along with Latour, an early candidate for the wine of the vintage.

Scented, biscuit, sweet nose. Exciting. Real energy here. There's a hint of milk chocolate and slightly dry tannins but it would make a good bottle to drink now.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 140

The sexy, dark plum/purple-colored 1999 Margaux is already revealing complex aromatics. This surprisingly charming and round offering is reminiscent of a vintage such as 1985. Although neither a blockbuster nor a heavyweight, it grows in the mouth revealing tremendous length as well as purity. Administrator Paul Pontallier prefers it to the more austere 1998, as do I. This is an archetypical Chateau Margaux of richness, finesse, balance, and symmetry. It can be drunk young, but promises to age nicely for two decades. Extrapolating backwards, it would probably have something in common with the underrated 1962 Medocs.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

A tight and silky red, with lots to offer-currant, tobacco and cherry character, medium to full body, fine tannins and a long, long finish. Just needs time. 16,665 cases made.

decanted for 4 hours. colour: dark plum. solid garnet at rim. nose: takes some coaxing but gives up complex aromatics with floral notes and a strong minerality. violet? taste: lovely rounded mouth feel with very smooth tannins. blackberry. very refined and precise. grape skin. this will improve over the next 10-15 years but is a decidedly enjoyable drinking experience now.

Hands down the most decadent, precocious vintage tasted this evening. The 1999 showed very rich and forward, w/ explosive currant paste, cassis, smoked mushrooms, tapenade, cocoa and plum pudding notes that are loaded w/ delicious, opulent baby fat. While youthful and exuberant, the wine is super endowed, layered and showed gorgeously enough to be drunk today, or cellared for up to 15 years
