Honestly, a little disappointing for me. It had tremendous complexity and depth, and in particular, it tasted refreshingly of the sea, but there was a lingering hint of bitterness. The bitterness, though not altogether unpleasant, was an unwelcome surprise.

Good way to start a year- 10 years old Dom Perignon! Yet, the champagne seams exactly like beginning of each year - great expectations partially met and partially blown. Crispy and fresh, with a bit too sweet aftertaste somehow to spoil the pleasure. Almost everything perfect just missing some X factor to make it outstanding. I have had excellent champagnes just for fraction of the price :( I love the brand marketing have created for Dom Perignon and that could be the reason vine itself didn’t live up to expectations. But the sweetness disappeared when we balanced it with oysters and strawberries. So at the end nevertheless it was experience to remember :)

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

( 150) Green-tinted 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 I d advise anyone drinking it for what s in the bottle rather than on the label to stash it away for at least another five years minimum. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

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.

'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+' -Wine Advocate
