1999 Vintage Report

Italian: The Barolos and Barbarescos are very good and are reminiscent of the 95s in style and structure. 1999 was the third top vintage in a row in Tuscany. Despite the wet weather in most of Italy, the region remained hot and dry for most of the growing season, although there was intermittent rain during the harvest. Those who picked before the September rains have produced deeply coloured wines that are brimming with rich, ripe fruits.
 
Bordeaux: 1999 wine : A very good vintage that produced low acidity, ripe wines which have matured quickly and are drinkable now. However, they should last a good 15-20 years. The weather during the growing and harvest season was excessively wet and hot and in earlier times could have been disastrous. However, those Chateau that adopted modern selection and processing techniques produced wines of good quality. Those that did not fared less well. This is reflected in the wide variation in quality across the region. Prices are fair and reflect good value.
 
Vintage Port: 1999 port: Not a general declaration of vintage. Some vineyards produced small quantities of outstanding single quinta wines.

Through many generations, the Company was run by several representatives of the Kopke family, obtaining an excellent reputation for its wines.

Review:
Bright red-brown colour. Presents a complex bouquet of fruity aromas, standing-out the red fruits. In the taste it is elegant, well structured and with an excellent aromatic intensity. The freshness is in perfect harmony with the delicious fruity flavours, which are extended through the persistent and seductive finish.

1999 Nebbiolo D'alba

D'Alba, Patrizia (Includes a Dark Mocha Leather Effect Gift Box with Silk Liner)


The 1999 Nebbiolo D'alba has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered. Nice acidity. Medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too. Nice finish. Great food wine.

Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavored wines. Though generally only medium-bodied, the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavors of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones.

Chateau d'Armailhac, 1999

Pauillac, 5th Growth classification

Varietal mix
Merlot 42%
Cabernet Sauvignon 35%
Cabernet Franc 23%

Tasting notes

The wine has a fine, rather vivid red colour with a ruby tint and a very open, complex nose on which fresh fruit (cherry, blackcurrant, redcurrant) and floral aromas (violet, lilac) mingle with denser notes of vanilla, tobacco leaf and cedarwood. The body builds rapidly from a substantial attack on round, harmonious tannins which unfold over elegant, well-integrated oak, developing a pleasant suggestion of liquorice, menthol and spice on the palate. The long, elegant finish displays highly refined tannins and lingering red fruit flavours.

Chateau Leoville Lascases, 1999

St Julien, 2nd Growth Classification

*** 91 Points Robert Parker ***

Reviews
"The 1999 Leoville Las Cases possesses a dense purple color as well as classic aromas of vanilla, black cherries, and currants mixed with subtle toasty oak. The wine is medium-bodied with sweet tannin, yet it remains young, backward, and unevolved (unusual for a 1999). Its extraordinary purity and overall harmony give it a character all its own. This excellent Las Cases will be at its finest between 2006-2022." Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Chianti Classico, 1999

Castelgreve

A solid, enjoyable Chianti. It shows a really nice nose of sweet dried cherries and wild berries flecked with powdered herbs, dried spices and a little touch of dried earth. A very Italian bouquet. The palate is in great shape, drinking beautifully with nice flavours of prunes and plums and dried cherries laced with slightly chewy tannins and bright, tomato-ish Sangiovese acidity. The finish has a nice dusting of Italian herbs and a dried prune character that spoke of the hot 1997 vintage

Chianti Classico, 1999

Castello di Lucignano - Riserva

This 1999 chianti classico is characterised by its ruby red colour which turns to garnet with time, with aromas of red and black cherry intermingled with notes of wild herbs, mint and a hint of earthy spice. It is supported by a racy acidity, mellow tannins and a long persistent finish.The label riserva is earned only when the wine has been aged for 24 months before commercial release.

Chianti, situated in Tuscany in central Italy, is home to probably the best-known and most iconic of all Italian wines. The area’s most highly regarded wines come from the Chianti Classico zone which is the heartland of the Chianti wine region – its traditional and longest-established vinicultural area.

Sandeman Vintage Port, 1999

Vau Vintage- Comes in Sandeman Tube as illustrated

Tasting notes:
Deep red, opaque and inky with intense, fresh red fruit aromas. In the mouth it has rich plummy flavours with hints of strawberry supported by firm tannins giving a firm backbone and which will allow it to age superbly over several years. It is a superb match for desserts and mince pies.

Production method
Fermentation in stainless steel vats and in presses under controlled temperature, arrested through the addition of grape alcohol. Matured for 2 years in large used oak vats, bottled in 2nd year after harvest and aged in bottle since. Both dates appear on label.

Producer notes
The iconic Sandeman Don, created in 1928, is one of the first trademark images ever created.
