Lot #38. Emmanuel Rouget Echézeaux 1999

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94 AM.
"The heavy wood spice that dominated the concentrated black fruit from cask has now largely, if not completely, been absorbed and leads to round, sexy, seductive, earthy, nicely rich and detailed flavors of excellent intensity and fine length. This is still relatively primary though the depth is slowly emerging and while it will undoubtedly be a long term cellar candidate, it should be close to its majority in another 7 to 10 years. Note that I have upgraded my view of this wine considerably as I was not at all sure that it could successfully integrate this much wood but indeed it has. Tasted several times recently with consistent results." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Dec 2012
Provenance: The Nantais Cellar
Notes: Very lightly wrinkled capsule, nicked and lightly scuffed label.
