    December 24, 2021 - Quite possibly the best champagne I had the pleasure to drink. Sublimely fine bubbles, smooth and yeasty character. But then… an explosion of restraint white fruit, mango, pineapple and peaches. Light and intense pleasure with interminable length. Structured, balanced and light footed, but with incredible precision.

    Hedonistic pleasure well outside the champagne canon. Just unapologetically good. Ageless?

    December 17, 2021 - One of my favorite 99 champagnes - acidity is PING PONGING all over still. The wine is saliva inducing and saturated with delicious yellow fruit and citrus rind.

    August 27, 2021 - This bottle is not showing nearly as well as previous commentators would suggest. TBH, it’s more dull, linear and unimpressive than all the others in the series, including the vintage Delamottes.

    June 12, 2021 - 4,9. Straw yellow, with a periferal tint of green. Brioche, butter and stored yellow apples on the nose. Dry. Sophisticated with creamy bubbles. Feels suprisingly young, with a fresh acidety. Looong and lingering exit, with a citric touch. A fabolously delicious Champagne! 🍾🍾🍾

    May 16, 2021 - The 99 Salon Magnum is staggeringly fresh and vibrant, almost a completely different wine to the standard 99 Salon I had a few years ago. This is clearly a significant step up to the standard bottle in both the intensity and freshness. Ripe and potent portfolio of citrus. Drink now – 2044. (94/100)
