The 1999 Savennieres Roche aux Moines is a respectable wine, though by far not as brilliant and precise as it is now. The selection of the grapes is obviously much more careful today. The 1999 offers some fungal aromas beside matured flavors of dried fruits, caramel, and slate. The palate is almost dry and dominated by the dried apricot fruit, but the finish remains somewhat rough and bitter. This was probably not the best bottle?
