DescriptionSalon Vintage Champagne 1999
" This is a massive, full-bodied Salon that totally saturates the palate with fruit. Neither as austere or pointed as the 1996, nor as open as the 1997, instead the 1999 comes across as big, rich and powerful. There is little in the way of flavor or aromatic development, and it may be some time before any real complexity develops in bottle. Today it looks like the wine's best days are well off into the future." (94+pts AG)
"Here we find the mandarin and pineapple already. The minerality is stunningly rocky and the butteriness has just begun to wrapping the chalk. The nuttiness and depth requires patience to be experienced, for believe me it will come some day in the future. Very nice last time I tasted it though." (92 pts. Richard Juhlin, Aug. 2014)
