1999 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Romanee-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits
18.5/20 Jancis Robinson- "Very dark, deep crimson, still with some blackish tinge. Sweet but rather closed nose. Velvety somehow. Really rather fresh and rewarding. Very pure and lush and at the moment savoury rather than sweet on the palate, but the most exciting so far in terms of potential. Dense and vibrant. Super clean and noble. So much tucked in here! However, over time, this remained rather more stolid in the glass than the 2005 and 2006. Pretty impressive overall and some interesting fennel notes emerged."
