July 17, 2016 - [17 July 2016 opened at home with Ad, over dinner ] Deep color with brick at the rim. A lovely nose with scent of cigar, tea, mushrooms and damp earth. On the palate this tastes fresh with some grip. Tannins are fine and silky. It opens up over the first hour and expands nicely.
Surprising quality for a village wine ! one of the 1999s that is drinking well now.
Giving great pleasure to drink now, its still fresh and with good grip on the palate, so i would guess it would hold at this level for 4-5 years easily. Drink up, this is likely to be at its peak at 17 years although i would love to be proved wrong!

March 30, 2010 - drank nicely. some way to go
November 20, 2009 - Lovely texture and substance but still quite closed. After about 4hrs open and near the end of the bottle - which had been decanted for a couple of hours - there was the beginnings of real expressiveness in the fruit, which was dark and raspberry-ish. This could do with a few more years, and the first 99 I have opened in awhile, which mostly just told me to hold off on the rest..
