"The 1999 Vielles Vignes Francaises is simply stunning. Layers of perfumed red raspberries, flowers and spices flow onto the palate with breathtaking beauty. The mousse is exceptionally fine, as is everything about this wine. Although the wine possesses superb density and richness, it remains light on the palate and supremely graceful.170 cases made"

"Marvellously creamy and intensively elegant in a modern, polished way despite muscles as great as the Gluteus Maximus on a thoroughbred. Already fantastically long and homogenous with a colossally compact layer of fruit that ranges from pear to fig. Tempting to enjoy it now at once, and that is no crime, but if one is oneself in good shape then one ought to wait until the wine's twentieth birthday before one's next meeting when the complexity of truffles will have developed fully."
