Dom Perignon 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Dom Perignon 1999 : WINEMAKER NOTES: The tasting begins with a wine that breathes and comes alive in a light, playful spiral, with touches of angelica, coconut, cinnamon, cocoa and tobacco. In the mouth, the wine reaches a state of complex fullness: earthy, smoky and pearly, 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 and iodine flavors.DOM PERIGNON 1999

The 1999 Harvest: Changeable, often unexpected, weather. Average temperatures were high and a very dry period gave way to almost tropical conditions in late summer, with strong winds and frequent hailstorms. The rainfall during harvesting did not

The 1999 Dom Perignon is a little flabbier than the 2000. Smoke, toastiness, tar and ripe fruit emerge from the glass in a generous, expansive style. The 1999 offers more body than the 2000 but the aromas and flavors are less well-articulated. This is a relatively simple Dom Perignon, yet the wine possesses outstanding balance and plenty of harmony. According to Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy the warm vintage also resulted in relatively high yields, and the low-acid style is most reminiscent of the 1976. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2024.

Dom Perignon is known for the delicacy of their house style. They use roughly half and half Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, occassionally placing more emphasis on the flavors Chardonnay brings to the wine. The 1999 vintage Dom is full of floral apple and pear notes with with an underlying earthiness that speaks of the Pinot in the blend. The wine is light in style yet overwhelmingly sophisticated and complex.

90 points Wine Spectator: "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." (07/07)
