Austere up front, this wine's tight floral scents open to a splash of color in the finish, as vivid as a 1960s Marimekko print. The lasting impression is bold and creamy. Decant it for seared scallops and truffled mashed potatoes.
Smoky, featuring a delicate bead and vivid acidity backing flavors of poached apple, black licorice, dried papaya and black currant candy. Offers a fresh finish, with a hint of seaside. Drink now through 2020.
*Two stars* Here again is a wine that has arrived at its best, and, if not one exhibiting a great deal of toast, it is dry and somewhat austere at this point. It is charged with a foamy and insistent mousse of very small bubbles and its bias to minerals and chalk reminds of a fine Blanc de Blancs. It will make for a complex aperitif sipper and will also perform well at washing down a platter of freshly shucked oysters.
Louise is always a light wine, almost feathery, and this 1999, now mature, maintains this style. It is delicate, its acidity just touched with toast and hints of citrus zest underneath. It doesn’t have a long future, so enjoy now.
