  Jean-Hubert Delon of Léoville Las Cases, which produced one of 1999's top wines.       Top-Scoring 1999 Bordeaux       Smart Buys in 1999 Bordeaux       Updated Bordeaux Vintage Chart       Related links:       The Bordeaux 2001 Barrel Tasting       The Bordeaux 2000 Barrel Tasting       1998 Bordeaux Tasting Report Like 1964, the 1998 vintage in Bordeaux is great for those who picked before the rain       Tasting some of the best 1999 red Bordeaux, I found it hard to believe that the vintage was one of the most difficult in recent memory for France's premier wine region.
