Mugnier's 1999 Musigny Grand Cru is still a very youthful wine, but a few hours' decant gives a more than adequate sense of its immense quality. A beautiful bouquet of raspberries, black cherry, cocoa powder, violets, peony and incipient notes of rich soil and cedar introduce a pure, full-bodied wine with pitch-perfect balance and a deep, spherical core of ripe tannin, juicy acidity and reserved concentration. This is not an especially flamboyant wine, but it's incredibly authoritative and sophisticated; and in another decade, it will be just irresistible.

A highly expressive, indeed even explosive nose offers up wonderfully pure spice and methol-infused black cherry fruit aromas that complement elegant, sexy and beautifully refined medium-weight flavors that are underpinned by velvet wrapped tannins and stunning persistence. Though this is not what I would call a dense wine, it has a finish that lasts for minutes and exudes energy and vibrancy plus the impeccable balance should permit the '99 Musigny to drink well for a long, long time. A terrific wine that clearly is still on its way up so there is no rush to at all to drink up.
