Tasting Notes

The incredible complexity this wine showed from cask is still present in spades though the profound depth and weight has largely closed in on itself as the wine has already begun to shut down. As with most of the wines in this range, the '99 Bèze is not about density or power but rather about elegance and layer after layer of explosive, medium weight flavors of excellent length supported by solid structure buried beneath the sap. A beautiful effort that should age for a long time.
