The 1999 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is an explosive full-bodied wine bursting with fruit. This is a massive towering Champagne where you can really feel the sheer density and richness of the fruit. The wine possesses exceptional length and compelling intensity in its layers of fruit. Mint flowers and cloves are some of the nuances that linger on the eternal finish. As delicious as the wine is the aromas and flavors are decidedly on the oxidative style and may not appeal to all palates. I also am inclined to think the 1999 won't be one of the longer-lived vintages of this wine. Disgorged: February 3 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. --- Antonio Galloni

Mineral-dominated bouquet of baked apple quince paste fig talc and nutmeg picking up smoked meat with air. Fleshy orchard fruit flavors stain the palate and gain a sweet buttery quality with air. Really attacks the palate but there's surprising energy here too. Baking spices and candied flowers cling on the finish which delivers serious punch and clarity.
