A very savoury scent of tobacco and plums. The palate was very sweet, thick, extracted, but acidic and approachably tannic - also a little fiery (no idea if this was decanted or not - a problem with such tastings always). Very good, if a touch simple, but the balance and sheer fun of the wine make up for that amply.

I loved this LBV 1999. I thought it had a great combination of rich savoury tastes I associate with port and some nice fresh fruit that I associate with new wine. I really liked the first bottle and I have one bottle left. Do you think this one will age well? I thought it would improve with age if I can keep my hands off it.

This is going to be a fine wine and just needs time, IMO. 60 year old vines, low yields, decadent fruit with great concentration and a structural integrity that will keep this rocking for years.
