    Winemaker's Notes:

    On the nose, this wine is full of life, with a fresh nose that dances through a spiral of aromas, blending hints of angelica, dried flowers, pineapple, coconut, cinnamon, cocoa and tobacco. With a fullness in the mouth, its earthy, smoky, pearly complexity rises to the surface, underscored by the vibrant warmth of peppery spice. The sensation of intensity develops and melts into a deep, rounded heart, with a fruity, exotic maturity and a slight touch of aniseed. This sensation, almost unsettling, is even more pronounced in the finish, while the notes of spice, still present, remain discreet, with toasted, iodine flavors.

    Critical Acclaim:

    There's a high-toned minty graphite accent to the aroma, with a citric edge on the palate. The structure is overlaid with lemon and bread dough notes. This is tight and crisp on the finish, so break out the sole or shellfish, or wait a few years. Best from 2008 through 2020.

    A lovely, fragrant '99 with tight lemon flavors, this is softer at the edges where brioche scents enrich the roasted apple fruit. It's relatively oxidative for a young vintage of Dom Pérignon. To serve over the next several years with roast pheasant and an apple-chestnut dressing.

    This is a full bodied champagne with an earthy, fruity taste that finishes with a lot of flavor. This is a great option for special dinners during the holiday season. I personally prefer Cristal, but this is a quality champagne that you won't be disappointed with.

    I purchased this because I remembered how wonderful the taste was. I believe the 1999 vintage is just not up to par.

    Was very satisfied, but limited palate and experience.

    This poignant bottle sparkles with effluvium and jettisons its historically constrained vibrato. Definitely one for the ages.
