Finally popped once open.

Ch. Verdignan is always a great value with good aging potential, the '99 is no exception even in a wet vintage.

Good dark, clear, colour with some bricking at the rim. Classic bouquet of blackberry, dark cherry, spice & cedar.
Medium body. Tannins have smoothed out with just enough left to balance the wine. Classy and delicious.

Glad I keep buying these. Terrific value.
