Salon 'S' Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil Brut Chardonnay 1999 (1500ml)

$1395

...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. Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Laser energy, crystalline salinity, citrus fruit, vibrancy, soft brioche notes. Lovely.

The 1999 Salon ‘S Blanc de Blancs’ Champagne is a magical wine that is sinfully good at twenty years of age. Disgorged in 2011 this wine leads the way with an extraordinarily good nose of salted praline with shades of wet stone, damp earth and bright citrus fruits that all mingle marvelously in the glass. The silky mousse captivates the senses. Bright green apple and kumquat flavors connect with diatomaceous earth, and shades of white truffle on the palate. The freshness here is quite extraordinary. While delightful now, this one of a kind Champagne will provide drinking satisfaction for at least another fifteen years. Drink 2019-2039- 97

Insanely fresh and vibrant. I wouldn’t touch this for another few years. Great potential.

Very sweet and pretty at the front. Soft citrus and a mellow salinity with hints of oyster shells. Pretty and open. For salon very un-steely. From mag

Closest to heaven one can find in a Blanc de Blancs. Ephemeral in identity and assured in longevity. An unbelievable classic that can only be understood through experience. Consumed the 1999. Glorious.

First time I had the 1999 Salon, it was still too tight and a few years later, tasted on Sept 18, it is creamy with a soft mousse and flavor that last and last.
