open the Cristal?

I have a bottle of 1999 Cristal that I received as a gift about 5 years ago. It's been stored in my wine cellar (which consists of 2 wine fridges out in my garage, one set for whites and one for reds). I've seen a couple of "drinking window" charts that say this bottle should be consumed in the next year or so, but others disagree. Thoughts from the experts? (I also have a few vintages of Dom Perignon (also gifts) but those seem like they will be happy with several more years of "cellaring".)
