The sheer intensity and opulence of this vintage release struck me immediately. The fruit appears richer than usual - lemons, orange peel, dried fruits - giving the wine great approachability now. Lovely fine bubbles, backed up with the power typical of Champagne's grandest marquee. The wine's great acidity points to drinking pleasure over the next 10 years. Many reviewers, including the UK's Jancis Robinson, hail this as one of the greatest Dom releases. -
"Breathtakingly expensive ($380) but there's no argument that it's a great wine and top vintage. The Dom style is all about finesse, with fruit uppermost but also tremendous underlying complexity. Indulge Yourself " - 97 points Huon Hooke
A striking champagne from a vintage with assertive power and prowess, it will need time to deliver the trademark Dom Perignon complexity. Bright floral notes, sweet brioche, lemon rind, oyster shell, some spice and subtly nutty hints. The palate sparks to life with great depth and brisk attack - plenty of energy and verve, concentrated red-fruit flavours amid alluring, harmonious, creamy texture. This will start to peak at around 15 years of age. 97 points Nick Stock Good Wine Guide
