Laurent-Perrier Collection Reserves Brut Vintage 1999 Magnum (1.5L) | Wooden Case
To reveal the work of Nature and the exceptional know-how of the Laurent-Perrier teams, the House unveils its “Reserves” collection that has been waiting in the cellars for nearly 25 years. The Laurent-Perrier Collection Reserves Brut Vintage 1999 Magnum is a rare and exceptional Champagne wine, recently disgorged to preserve the characteristic freshness of the House’s wines.
The Vintages are the choice of an exceptional year, with a particular ageing potential and oenological profile. 1999 is a very fine vintage, characterised by elegance and finesse.
The 1999 harvest: After severe frosts in November (-14°C), the winter was a combination of rain, snow, cold, dullness, but also mildness and sun. The spring was a bit chaotic and contrasted (snow on April 14th, heat from April 25th to 30th) and ended with a beautiful flowering. At the end of August the harvest promised to be excellent, but despite some rain, the crop was healthy and abundant.
Chardonnay 52%, Pinot Noir 48%. The Crus: The most prestigious Crus of the Montagne de Reims (Verzy, Verzenay, Ambonnay, Tours-sur-Marne) and of the Côte des Blancs (Mesnil, Cramant, Oger, Chouilly).
