1999 Domaine Chandon "Etoile" Brut
Years of lees contact have made this bubbly soft, creamy and complex, although it still has a crisp spine of acidity. The flavors are rich and doughy, with a ripe finish of strawberries and peaches. It’s a little sweet, and should hold well for several years.
Crisp and sleek, with lively ginger and spice aromas and vibrant citrus, lemon curd and hazelnut flavors. Drink now.
This cuvée of étoile Brut was aged for 5 years on the yeast, helping it evolve gracefully into a harmonious, seamless and exceptionally balanced sparkling wine with complex layers, elegant nuances and a lingering, yet lively finish. Fuji apple, candied ginger and hazelnut spice flavors. Hints of citrus blossom with a long, soft and creamy structure.
