|Burgundy||1999||Chambertin, Domaine Dugat-Py|
Non OWC, damp affected label
|Wines are offered subject to remaining unsold. E&OE.|
The 1999 Chambertin is a magnificent, show-stopping wine. It is black-coloured and bursts from the glass with licorice, cookie dough, blackberry and cassis liqueur aromas. This is a massive, full-bodied wine with loads of sweet candied black fruits, licorice, freshly laid asphalt, spice, fresh herbs, and toasty oak flavours. It is mind-numbingly powerful, conquering the taster with wave upon wave of supple, syrup-like fruit whose flavours last throughout its seemingly unending finish. This blockbuster Burgundy should be cellared for a minimum of 10 years and may last up to 20 or more years after that. It is one of the rare wines from this region that I would have no qualms about cellaring for 30 years.
