This features floral, candied citrus, pencil shaving and hazelnut aromas and flavors. It's fresh and focused, with a firm structure offset by a mouthfilling richness and a lacy texture. Not a blockbuster, but seamless and seductive in its approach. Drink now through 2010.

In some vintages, Dom can be difficult to judge when young, seeming a bit austere and calling for cellaring. The '96 appears to be a slightly riper, lusher vintage, and while it has plenty of toast, pencil shaving and smoke notes that promise to age into nutty elegance, it is also creamier and more approachable in its youth. Finishes with ripe apples and a hint of coffee or bittersweet chocolate.

I have had a lot of great vintages of Dom Perignon, but I do not remember any as impressive as the 1996. Even richer than the brilliant 1990, the 1996 is still tightly wound, but reveals tremendous aromatic intensity, offering hints of bread dough, Wheat Thins, tropical fruits, and roasted hazelnuts. Medium to full-bodied, with crisp acidity buttressing the wines wealth of fruit and intensity, it comes across as extraordinarly zesty, well-delineated, and incredibly long on the palate. Moet-Chandon deserves considerable accolades for this prodigious example of Dom Perignon. Anticipated maturity: now-2020+

Intense and toasty on the nose, picking up scents of green apple and lime. Seems very young and fresh - capable of extended aging, but precocious for Dom, with enough fruit to make it pleasurable now. Supple and creamy in the mouth, this wine shows no sharp edges, yet boasts an extraordinarily long finish.

Exotic, with ripe candied fruit character (black currant and citrus) and biscuit notes that unfold on an open yet firm structure. Lingers subtly on the finish. Drink now through 2008.

The brilliant 1996 Dom Pérignon, which has largely disappeared from the marketplace, may be the finest young example of DP I have ever tasted. Notes of crushed rocks, honeysuckle, lemon oil, orange marmalade, and white pear provide a stunning aromatic display as well as palate impression. Great acidity and huge flavor intensity backed up by vibrant acidity make this an exquisite Champagne. It should drink well for 20-25 years, possibly longer.

Starts out round and plush, then the structure takes over. Light peach and berry flavors prevail as this plays out on the lingering finish. Give it a little time to integrate, but this should develop well. Best from 2009 through 2024.
