The 1998 Dom Pérignon has an intense white-golden color and is beautifully clear and fine on the nose, which indicates a lovely maturity and displays grey bread, almond cake and iodine flavors, along with lemon and orange aromas. This clarity and mineral freshness proceeds on the highly elegant, finesse-full and silky textured palate, and the complexly flavored, very distinguished finish is dry and mineral, revealing a stimulating salinity and tension. The 1998 seems young still, but is certainly a great pleasure to drink and will be for many years. The Wine Advocate #225. June 2016

About Dom Pérignon...
Dom Pérignon that was already much appreciated by the British at the end of the twelfth century, did not become a success story until the reign of Louis XV. 'The' Dom Pérignon, the prestige cuvée of Moët & Chandon, is probably the world’s most famous Champagne! Ever since it was commercialised in 1936 (only 300 bottles of vintage 1921 were produced), Dom Pérignon was an instant hit worldwide! The rosé version was marketed for the first time in 1970 (vintage 1962). This top-class cuvée, which is sold in a bottle of a specific shape that is based on the shape of bottles during the eighteenth century, is only being produced in the best wine years. The number of bottles that is placed on the market by Dom Pérignon, has always remained a well-kept secret, and this secrecy is being maintained by the present owner, LMVH. This complex wine with superb aromas of dried fruits and toasted bread is notable for its pleasant aftertaste. It has an excellent aging potential which makes it much appreciated by many a wine lover.
