S de Salon 1999 Champagne - 750 ml

Save 17%
The robe of the champagne Salon 1999 is of a very pale yellow in which appear reflections of delicate pale green hues. On the palate, the attack is immediate, little by little revealing a firm yet refined texture, thanks to a gracious effervescence with fine bubbles and a creamy foam. Aromas express all their richness unveiling flavours of brioche and soft part of the bread, along with scents of white flowers, white fruits and almonds. The finale remains long and enhanced by citrus hints.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Salon 1999 Brut Le Mesnil - disgorged already in 2011 and dosed with a pretty typical six grams of residual sugar - displays faintly fusil and quarry dust notes as well as hickory nut, almond, walnut and toasted wheat piquancy on the nose. Polished and subtly creamy in texture yet brightly juicy with apple and lemon, this displays an uncanny sense of lift and refinement, perfectly complementing the honeysuckle and heliotrope perfume that waft inner-mouth. You could lose yourself in the ineffability of this wine's floral diversity and in its resonantly nut and grain low tones. Hints of apple pip lend subtle additional piquancy on a long and at once soothing as well as stimulating finish, with suggestions of oyster liquor becoming prominent as the bottle stands open for a few minutes, and serving to milk the salivary glands for all that they are worth. Follow this for at least a decade.
