Grand Cru Classé de Graves.

- +

A very good year for this 1999, Grand Cru Classé of Pessac Léognan, located not far from the Châteaux Haut Brion and Mission Haut Brion.

The bouquet, a real vivacious concerto on various small red fruits such as blackcurrant and blackberry with a very nice presence of spices and blond Virginia tobacco.

The tannins are very structured and silky, the palate is elegant, concentrated.

Incidentally, the yield that year was only 3,700 bottles per hectare, which only partially explains the extreme power and concentration of this wine in terms of its flavors and aromas.

The color is sparkling purple.

A wine to keep whose peak should be between 2021 and 2030, bottle lying in the cellar away from light and noise, with an optimal humidity of 70%. To be tasted from time to time in order to measure its evolution until its peak.

Decant the day before to give it time to express itself and reveal its explosive qualitative nuances of flavors and fragrances.
