Castelnau COLLECTION OENOTHEQUE 1998 Magnum Brut Champagne
CON CASSA IN LEGNO DA COLLEZIONE ULTIME OCCASIONI IMPERDIBILI, LOTTI SINGOLARMENTE
The Oenotheque 1998 magnum reflects all the elegance of a complex vintage, and is
now mature and perfectly balanced. What a pleasant surprise after such a capricious,
difficult growing season like 1998! Yet that is the magic of Champagne! This beautiful
bottle shows almost spring-like freshness but with rich roasted notes. This perfect
balance comes from all three of the grape varieties used in the blend.
There is 40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Meunier and 20% Pinot Noir, and together they
provide the finesse, richness, depth of flavour and balance in the wine. The sum
of the whole really is more than the sum of the individual parts.
FOOD MATCHING You can appreciate the finesse and personality of this wine on its
own; or you can savour it with foie gras cromesquis (a type of croquette,) or even
with a veal steak with bone marrow and girolles. 1998
