Dom Perignon Premier 1999

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Green-tined gold. Tightly wound lime and pink grapefruit aromas open slowly to reveal a gently smoky mineral and floral character, with a light kiss of green cardamom adding interest. Very fresh on the palate, with youthful citrus and green apple flavors giving way to slightly riper blood orange and pear. Finishes firm and dry, with serious grip. This only hints at its potential, and Iandrsquo;d advise anyone drinking it for whatandrsquo;s in the bottle rather than on the label to stash it away for at least another five years, minimum.

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

Thereandrsquo;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.
