The culmination of a contrasted year Grand Vintage Collection 1999
A bright, golden color.
The champagne has developed a rich maturity with dark, warm aromas, initially sweet (licorice, nougatine, Malaga) then dry (mocha, hazelnut, toast, charcoal).
On the palate, an impressive sensation of power and volume, of an enveloping body that is full yet light. Generous notes of candied grapes, dates and honey give way to a flavorful bitter finish on coffee or licorice.

The culmination of contrasting and unseasonable weather
Winter brought a perplexing mix of rain and snow, cold and warm temperatures, sunny and grey skies. Spring was warm and free of frost, but hail affected an important part of vineyards in May. June saw hot weather while July and August were stormy. Global drought conditions then prevailed followed by "tropical" weather at the end of the summer, with very high temperatures in early September alternating with quite heavy rainfall. The harvest was a time of euphoria, as the bunches were very substantial, and the grapes were ripe, healthy and abundant.
