1969 (RP : 94): «Golden colour. Enticing butterscotch, walnut, honey and warm brioche scented nose. There’s a pleasantly surprising level of spritz left, providing freshness to this rich, evolved style. A very crisp backbone of acid pierces the concentrated nutty, toasty flavours. Very long finish with characteristic chalkiness and a really interesting umami earthiness.»
1976 (RP : 96): «The 1976-Dom Perignon (Original Release) was a revelation. It showed the lightest color in this flight, which could have been taken as a clue. It showed unreal freshness and vibrancy, with soaring aromatics and notes of white peaches and jasmine. It was a totally seductive wine.»
1990 (RP : 96): «Medium lemon-straw colour. Intensely fragrant nose with aromas of jasmine, cinnamon buttered toast, stewed apples and preserved ginger. Concentrated honey-nut, warm apple tart and spice flavours fill the mouth giving ample flesh to the firm, fine structure. The bubbles are still remarkably frisky and, in harmony with the crisp backbone of acid, make for a relatively youthful, elegant and exquisitely balanced wine. Very long finish. Drink now to 2015.»
2002 (RP : 94): «The 2002 Dom Perignon is at first intensely floral, with perfumed jasmine that dominates the bouquet. With time in the glass the wine gains richness as the flavors turn decidedly riper and almost tropical. Apricots, passion fruit and peaches emerge from this flashy, opulent Dom Perignon. The wine’s volume makes it approachable today, but readers in search of more complexity will want to cellar this for at least a few years to allow for some of the baby fat to drop off. Geoffroy describes the vintage as very ripe and adds that some of the Chardonnay showed the ill-effects of the hot growing season in the somewhat burned, dehydrated fruit that came in that year»
