Deep red with ruby highlights, but Guillaume d'Angerville noted that this premier cru is typically softly extracted and light in color. Compelling, vibrant aromas of blueberry pastille, violet, licorice and spicecake. Incredibly primary and sweet, with its density leavened by harmonious acidity. Pliant dark berry flavors are complicated by hints of flowers and spices. This very pure wine has to be one of the most youthful 1999s I tasted this winter. Finishes with utterly suave tannins and outstanding length. This infant is just beginning to open and should enjoy a long plateau of maturity. D'Angerville described 1999 as "a magical vintage," noting that the yield here was at least 40 hectoliters per hectare. His father Jacques actually held back 4,000 bottles of wine in '99 but Guillaume has released most of these bottles by now to loyal clients of the domain. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, March 2018)

1999 vintage. Finally-a 99 D'Angerville that's really ready. Not much nose but delicious chewy fruit.

Brilliant nose with lots of spice and complexity. Palate less developed with bright red fruit, but some austerity. Needs more time.

Nose is a bit austere. The palate is medium bodied with a sour cherry vibe - the acid is on the verge of being out of balance. Long finish.
