“The best vintage yet for this bottling”



Professional reviews:

Wine Advocate: “The 1999 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is a knockout bottle of wine that gives up gorgeously mature aromas and flavors of kirsch, blackberry, game, olive and spice in its medium-bodied, seamless and elegant profile. It’s a rock-star effort that’s drinking at full maturity. (JD)” 95/100 pts

International Wine Cellar (Stephen Tanzer): Bright medium ruby. Knockout liqueur-like nose combines black raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, black cherry and licorice, with just a suggestion of surmaturite. Lush, silky and seamless on the palate, with a deep flavor of dark chocolate. Offers great volume without any excess weight. Powerful but not hot. Finishes with superb length and richness. The best vintage yet for this bottling. (ST)” 94/100 pts

Wine Spectator: “Superplush and modern, with mouthfilling fig, mocha and spice flavors on a velvety frame. Opulent, but with excellent definition thanks to buried notes of charcoal and graphite on the finish, which blossoms in the glass.” 94/100 pts
