    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense yellow gold sparkling with a miriad of fine bubbles. The nose is structured, forceful, toasted with subtle mineral notes recalling lemon, white pepper, and ginger. Four square on the palate, mouth filling, robust and powerful. Touches of minerality, even salt, give balance structure and finesse. The great chardonnays of this generous vintage delineate this superb wine.

    Food Match: soft cheeses, shrimp, scallops, salmon, pheasant, lobster, lamb, fowl, foie gras, fish, duck, crab.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 1999 Brut Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill, from magnum, is wonderfully rich and expansive, proving yet again just 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. Disgorged July, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030.

    Bright yellow-gold. An exotically perfumed bouquet displays scents of dried pear, acacia honey, toasted almond, white flowers and smoky lees. Lush and creamy in texture, offering hefty citrus and orchard fruit flavors braced by tangy minerality. The honey and smoke notes linger on the spicy, focused, very long finish. This is drinking well now but has the structure and energy to age.

    International Wine Cellar

    Hints of nut and honey underscore flavors of lemon meringue, citrus peel, smoke and toast in this vivacious Champagne, which is driven by firm acidity, leading to a lingering, spicy finish. Drink now through 2020.
