"The 1999 Clos l'Eglise is a tremendous success for the vintage. It is showing even better from bottle. A stunningly complex nose of vanilla, espresso, plums, figs, charcoal, and black cherry liqueur jumps from the glass of this flamboyantly-scented wine. In the mouth, it is all sex appeal, with silky, voluptuous flavors, sweet tannin, low acidity, and ripe, concentrated flavors." -Robert Parker, Jr.
