Wine was one of the biggest productions and source of enrichment in the roman empire. This trade was the most important one, as the italy could not assume its own consuption. The culture of the vines itself was different : different sorts of pergolas, vines growing on trees and another philosophy of the plant considering as it was more than a vegetal.

99's weren't stellar in Bordeaux, but, Pichon Baron is always a very good wine. These are drinking well, but lack concentration that you will find in the 2000's/2003's and 2005's. It's always a fairly priced wine that is a sure winner regardless of vintage.

...Evolving aromas of currant, tobacco, cigar box, mocha and earth. Sweet, lush and rich; in a distinctly easygoing style, thanks to the very ripe merlot, which comprises 37% of the blend. Not as structured as the 2000 or 2001 but has no shortage of ... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1999 Pichon-Longueville Baron 6000ml
