1999 Louis Jadot Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru
Burghound | Rating: 91An extremely pretty and expressive nose offering Gevrey earth, subtle spice notes and an elegant, pure and beautifully complex cornucopia of red and black fruit aromas that give way to medium weight but classy and nicely precise flavors that deliver excellent length all while remaining in near perfect balance. This is an understated wine of harmony and finesse and one that should age very well on its balance rather than power or concentration.Author: Allen Meadows
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94Deep ruby-red. Perfumed nose of blackberry and minerals, plus a complicating vegetal hint. Very dense and deep; not yet expressive in the middle, but this very concentrated wine shows an old-viney creaminess of texture and lovely subtle persistence. The yield here was around 45 hectoliters per hectare, according to Lardiere.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2001
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The 1999 Chapelle-Chambertin (domaine) is medium to dark ruby-colored and has an intense, penetrating, currant and blackberry-scented nose. Baked cherries, plums, spices, and hints of coffee can be found in this medium to full-bodied, chewy wine. It is rich, pure, powerful, and has great length.Author: Pierre Rovani
