1999 - Exceptional and Plentiful
This last vintage of the twentieth century witnessed exceptionally good conditions during the growing season, with temperatures higher than usual. The crop was abundant, healthy and ripe, with grapes that were particularly delicious. The same conditions prevailed throughout all of Burgundy. This was one of the great vintages of the last century.
The wines are now evolving quite quickly. They are very open on the nose and display good complexity. The aromas are now reminiscent of honey and dried fruit. To drink soon.
After a period when the wines hardly evolved, some villages are ready to drink now. They are still well-balanced, mingling aromas of undergrowth and black fruit.
