TASTING NOTES

The 1999 Musigny was very closed down when first poured at our most recent tasting, but it blossomed beautifully with a bit of air and I would have loved to have seen it spend thirty minutes in decanter before it was served. The bouquet is very deep, very pure and perfumed, as it delivers a complex and sappy blend of red and black cherries, cocoa, a touch of gamebird, complex soil tones, blood orange, incipient notes of sous bois and espresso. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep, pure and very sappy, with ripe tannins, sound acids and great length and grip on the youthfully closed, but intensely flavored finish. With a bit more bottle age, this will be superb.
