1999 Maison Alex Gambal Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1493069 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The smoked bacon-scented, medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Clos Vougeot is an outstanding, medium to full-bodied wine. Silky-textured, pure, and sultry, it is a well-focused, decadently styled, spicy blackberry, candied blueberry, and cherry-flavored offering. Its thick yet juicy layers of dense fruits coat the palate. While it is packed with super-ripe flavors, they are well-delineated. Its impressively long finish reveals loads of supple, cherry-coated tannin. This wonderful Clos Vougeot should be consumed between 2005 and 2012. (PR) Inner quote mark (6/2001)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark The first wine in this group is that showing quite a bit of oak toast on the nose though there is plenty of underlying material to absorb it. Fresh black cherry and a whiff of vanilla with complex, solidly constructed flavors of no small distinction. The finish is mildly austere but persistent. Excellent potential. Inner quote mark (4/2001)

John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 1999 Clos Vougeot from Alex Gambal is a perfectly good, solid and fairly oaky example of the vineyard that falls squarely in the second division, but which should age fairly gracefully and provide pretty good drinking at its apogee. The closed nose offers up a solid blend of plums, black cherries, game, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and just a touch four-square, with a good core of fruit, solid acids and good length on the ripely tannic, and slightly overoaked finish. There is clearly sufficient stuffing here to eventually absorb all of its wood. Not bad. (Drink between 2012-2030) Inner quote mark (8/2008)
