Product Notes:
1999 had to be Louise! This exceptional cuvee is made in exceptional vintages only. The 1999 is incredibly refined, classy, delicate, complexe, pure and elegant. The robe is golden yellow with delicate and fine bubbles. It is floral and fruity on the nose with yellow fruits aromas (greengage), biscuity and toasty flavours. The Chardonnay gives spicy notes to show even more complexity. It is ample and full on the palate with a bit of fat to give the perfect balance and harmony. It is very long-lasting and so delicate...

Food Pairing:
Recommended food pairings for specific champagnes: Although these are only guidelines as taste is a very personal thing.
Brut non vintage:
Scrambled eggs,Any mushroom dish Nuts, especially almonds Popcorn and potato crisps Cheese- especially hard cheeses such as parmesan, gouda or cheddar. Pasta or risotto-especially with cream or mushroom sauce. Avoid heavy tomato-based sauces as the acidity clashes with the high acidity of the champagne. Thin crust pizza, but not with heavy tomato-based topping.
Rose
Vegetables Fish and seafood Poultry and game birds ie duck
Blanc de Blancs:
Sushi,Goats cheese. Poultry especially duck Pink-roasted lamb Seafood and fish Vintages: All fish and seafood dishes especially with rich, creamy sauces.

About Varietal:
Champagne is specifically a sparkling wine made in the Champagne region of France; every other sparkling is simply that, sparkling wine. Made to be aged for a few to many years, in many languages "Champagne" is synonymous with "party". When young, Champagne exhibits the fresh fruit tones of its "cepage", or blend. Usually based on a blend the features either Chardonnay or Pinot Noir as its main ingredient, Champagne's fruit can range from citrusy to orchard fruits and even red berries. The wine gains distinct yeasty notes from its secondary fermentation, the one that adds the fizz, which is typically described as recalling brioche or bread. As it ages Champagne tends to lose its obvious fruit, which is replaced by subtle nutty tones and subdued elements of dried fruits.

Recipe:
An intimate setting or wedding reception begs for one of these Champagne Cocktail recipes. But don't stop there! A champagne cocktail adds a special touch to any party suitable for champagne. Just use the party-size recipe version below and follow the make-ahead tips for easy party preparation.
Party-Size Champagne Cocktail Recipe

1/2 cup simple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons Angostura bitters
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup Cognac (or Brandy or Grand Marnier)
2 (750ml) bottles champagne
Orange twist halves and cocktail cherries for garnish


Simple Syrup: Dissolve 1 part sugar in 1 part boiling water. Cool.

Chill all ingredients before assembling. Combine simple syrup, bitters, lemon juice and Cognac and set aside. Refrigerate if making ahead. When you are ready to serve, thread the orange twists and cocktail cherries onto picks and insert in champagne flutes. Pour the simple syrup mixture into a pitcher. Gently stir in the champagne. Pour into flutes. 14-16 servings.

Tip:Make as much of the simple syrup mixture as you think you'll need ahead of time. Use a scant cup of the mixture per 2 bottles of champagne.
