Champagne G.H. MUMM Cuvee R. Lalou 1999
This is a stunning wine - from the bouquet to the palate I am enticed into its charms and elegance; Lots of tree fruit suggestions - apple and pear (mature and fresh, cooked and juiced), a delicious and very obvious autolysis adding depth and complexity.
As the wine begins to lose a little bubble (talking too much while tasting) I noticed the Chardonnay standing out more with a Chablis-esque like flavor and texture.
I decided to change glasses away from a flute and into a Riedel white wine taster (larger bowl and wider aperture) - the wine is delivered a lot more elegantly with the fruits speaking a little louder and the autolysis a little quiter - the finish is extensive and poised for elegance.
Again this is a stunning wine and worthy of any wine list
