The most recent vintage of Dom Perignon...1999...is a winner....maybe not quite as exquisite as the 1996 or 1990...but every bit as brilliant as their 1995....gotta be the world's greatest wine given the enormous quantities they produce....a remarkable achievement.
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 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.
Very pale. Smoky, slightly sweetly perfumed nose - very much in the ripe idiom of this vintage. Very tight bead with Dom P’s characteristic citrus note at the end but very little sign of any obvious autolysis.
