New Vintage Champagnes/ Vivid light gold with an energetic mousse. Fresh citrus pith and smoky minerals complement pear and nectarine aromas, with a suave toasty character adding depth. Vibrant orchard fruit flavors are deep but lively, picking up an exotic floral honey quality on the long, chewy finish. Plenty going on already, but this has the depth and balance to repay cellaring.
Celebris Extra Brut 1998 - 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ Certainly dry, but not as seriously dry as previous vintages of Celebris, this latest release is in a more opulent style. There is the proper grapefruit, mineral and flint character. Add to that yeast and toast, and the wine shows fine complexity and aging potential.
/ Bright and lively on the palate with concentrated aromas and flavors of white peach, lemon curd, and toasted almond; refreshing tart acidity on the long finish. Oysters.
Celebris Extra Brut 1998/ This exceptional '98 is predominantly chardonnay (64 percent), which seems to mark it with fresh pear flavor. Other than that, there's little that's delicate about the wine, which is powerfully structured, shadowed in earthy savor, brightened as if by light glinting on stone. A contrast of nutty maturity and tense acidity, this has a gamey aspect that will pair with partridge. It should mellow with further cellar time.
/ A sheer, effortless Champagne. The effervescence of this wine lifts the flavor and heightens the freshness, all in a rich harmony. It's vinous, with oak structuring the fruit but not adding to the taste, which remains as bright as a bite of pear on a cool autumn day. Minerally and dry, this is delicious now as a tangy young wine; it has the tension to carry it through full maturity in the cellar.
Celebris Extra Brut 1998 - Highly Recommended, MiamiHerald.com/ Oranges and sweet vanilla, rich sherry, full bodied, orange peel finish.
