Gary's tasting notes

Bread pudding and a hint of honey and apple on the nose. Very pretty. Very aromatic. As a reminder, I'm tasting this at room temperature which allows me to get all of the wine's nuances. Big green fruit, hints of asparagus meeting apple... and they're holding hands in perfect harmony like best friends. Long finish, good structure, still tasting fresh and vibrant. I'm having loads of success lately when it comes to '99s from Champagne, and France in general. Drink the '99 Champagnes now if you have a 12 year anniversary coming up! Look for this to last another 8-12 years and pair it with richer Lobster dishes.
