Year in and year out, Dom Pérignon remains a standout among prestige cuvée champagnes. The 1990 vintage is sheer elegance and class; a complex, full-bodied beauty that's still a baby. If you have the patience, save this stunner. It will develop even further.

A classic, this wine is meant for aging but very good now. Perfect for any celebration, really. Very elegant with toast and earth on the nose and deep fruit flavor. 55% Chardonnay grapes, 45% Pinot Noir grapes.

Bright yellow gold color. Moderately full-bodied. Highly extracted. Outstanding smoky, honeyed aromas. Plush mouthfeel with flavors that expand on the mid-palate. Extremely drinkable now, though the acids are lively and full through the finish. This is in no danger of fading.

Dom Pérignon, the first dry prestige cuvée ever created (back in 1921), is still the standard by which other prestige cuvées are measured. From vintage to vintage the Dom is amazingly consistent in its excellence. the 1990 is a classy, elegant, complex, full-bodied Champagne, richly flavored and creamy, but so very young. If you are fortunate enough to own the 1990 DP, save it for the Millennium. A great Champagne.

Toasty, earthy aromas and an expanding mousse make this an unusually assertive Champagne. Creamy in texture, ripe and fruity in flavor, it's distinctive but not for everyone. Best after 1998. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

With respect to the 1990 Champagnes, three were absolutely splendid - youthful, and with a powerful, structured richness allied to exceptional finesse and elegance. The profoundly rich 1990 Dom Pérignon... is a creamy textured, fuller style of Dom Pérignon that loses none of its elegance in spite of its flavor authority. It will improve for 5-10 years, and appears capable of surpassing the fabulous 1985 and 1982.

Fans of bold wine will love this Champagne. It's made in a full-bodied, assertive style that blends overt toasty, earthy aromas with bracing, dry fruit flavors and a robust but smooth texture. Drink now through 2003.
