1999 Salon Cuvee S Blanc de Blanc Champagne
Disgorged October 2010, the 1999 Salon Cuvee S Blanc de Blanc Champagne is the 37th vintage of this famous Blanc de Blancs from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. The 99′ Salon has a light mousse in the glass, with the bouquet beautifully defined with hints of white truffle and cold limestone. There is wonderful mineralité on the tense, poised palate and is perhaps less “Zen-like” than the 1996 with just a suggestion of brioche towards the finish. This is a class act for sure. Tasted March 2011. Robert Parker 95 Points, Drinking Now – 2050.
NV krug Rose Champagne
Krug Rose Grande Cuvée As scarce as hens teeth, this is tailor made for the person who has everything. It’s mighty reputation is just as big as the price, and this Rose champagne is just the thing for impressing that special someone. It is an impossibly complex blend of aged reserve wines and base wine of the blending year. It marries finesse with all the traditional Krug complexity: It’s a bit more elegant than the usual rich style from Krug, which makes it extra appealing. Strawberries, dried roses, citrus and toastiness decorate the nose, whilst the palate is dry and elegant, with bright red fruit and citrus flavours, and ultra-fine bubble, a touch of creaminess, and an almost floral finish. Then a stupendously fine finish and aftertaste. James Halliday 97 Points, Drinking Now – 2022.
2001 Chateau d’Yquem 1er Cru Classe Superieur
10,000 cases were made of the 2001 Chateau d’Yquem – this perfect sweet white Bordeaux. This Y’quem reveals a hint of green in its light gold color. While somewhat reticent aromatically, with airing, it offers up honeyed tropical fruit, orange marmalade, pineapple, sweet creme brulee, and buttered nut-like scents. In the mouth, it is full-bodied with gorgeously refreshing acidity as well as massive concentration and unctuosity. Everything is uplifted and given laser-like focus by refreshing acidity. This large-scaled, youthful Yquem appears set to take its place among the most legendary vintages of the past, and will age effortlessly for 75+ years. Robert Parker 100 Points, Drinking 2010-2100.
