    Winemaker's Notes:

    A dark and deep color with purple reflections. Spice, black fruits and delicate oak aromas. The nose is dense, expressive and intense. A tannic and racy wine with notes of plums, blackberries and vanilla. The palate is powerful, concentrated and structured. A wine from a muscular and tannic vintage wrought by a warm climate. The tannins are very strong but softened by a long oak aging.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 1999 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is the finest example yet of this blend fashioned from six hillside vineyards (La Garde, La Clos, La Grande Plantee, La Pommiere, Pavillon Rouge, and Le Moulin). Aged in both barrel and large foudre for 30 months prior to bottling, there are approximately 3,000 cases produced. The fabulous 1999 boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with a sweet nose of roasted herbs, bacon, licorice, smoke, blackberries, cherry liqueur, and toast. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured with hints of new saddle leather, tapenade, and creme de cassis...

    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.

    Wine Spectator

    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.
