Description

A bottle of 1998 Dom Pérignon vintage Champagne from Möet & Chandon.

'...this seems to me to be the best Dom P since at least 1990 and probably long before.

Quite unlike the relatively tight, austere 1996 (which should probably be kept and drunk after the 1998), this cuvée is extraordinarily open and ripe already – it hits the palate with such force it is easy to confuse its ripeness with sweetness but then, in Dom P style, it tightens up immensely and finished with great race and refreshing dryness. The nose initially suggests something headily fragrant – lilies perhaps – but then develops in the glassy to be much meatier and denser.' Jancis Robinson MW, September 2005
