With its richness and great density of flavor, this is always a great Champagne. This 1999 is rounder than some vintages, less mineral, while still retaining the balance between white fruit and toast. It is still young... With its richness and great density of flavor, this is always a great Champagne. This 1999 is rounder than some vintages, less mineral, while still retaining the balance between white fruit and toast. It is still young, still tightly textured and ageworthy over several years.

Deep, pungent nose offers an array of orchard and citrus fruit qualities, along with notes of iodine, minerals and toasty lees. Chewy and impressively concentrated, with excellent clarity to its pear and orange flavors. The toasty quality gains strength with air and carries through an impressively long, spicy, floral finish. Very impressive, especially for a release from what is widely considered a so-so vintage for Champagne. - Josh Raynolds

The 1999 Brut Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, from magnum, is wonderfully rich and expansive, proving yet again jut how well suited the big bottle is to Champagne. Smoke, peaches, mint and flowers are just some of the nuances that flow from this textured kaleidoscopic Champagne. The wine continues to gain focus and breadth through to the enticing, brilliant finish.

Subtle, with hints of ripe apple, almond paste, white peach and honey. There's a smoky mineral baseline, and though well-integrated the acidity is lightly chalky on the fine-grained palate. Drink now through 2019. 400... Subtle, with hints of ripe apple, almond paste, white peach and honey. There's a smoky mineral baseline, and though well-integrated the acidity is lightly chalky on the fine-grained palate. Drink now through 2019. 400 cases imported. –AN

Tasted at the Pol Roger dinner at The Ledbury. Pale Tasted from magnum, the nose is consistent with the bottle tasted earlier this year, the Chardonnay really driving the bouquet forward, although there is a curious tincture of aniseed that lends another dimension and later a hint of nougat. The palate has very fine weight, perhaps more so than in bottle and yet again, it seems to take its foot off of the accelerator towards the finish that is relatively simple compared to the ’98. Drink now-2025+

Complex and mature, this has a pear nectar-like richness as well as fresher apple and lemon curd notes. It finishes with the toasty, pastry crust scent of an almond tart. A firm and creamy Champagne to serve with mousse... Complex and mature, this has a pear nectar-like richness as well as fresher apple and lemon curd notes. It finishes with the toasty, pastry crust scent of an almond tart. A firm and creamy Champagne to serve with mousse truffée.
