1998 Moët et Chandon ‘Dom Pérignon’ P2

$649.00

Dom Pérignon is undoubtedly one of the world’s finest champagnes. It is named after a Benedictine monk who was thought to have invented the traditional method for making sparkling wines. Dom Pérignon is only available as a vintage cuvee, made only in the best years. The wine is 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir, with 7g/l dosage. All vintages need at least 12 months ageing to nurture Dom Pérignon’s signature silky mousse.

96 Points James Suckling
Decadent and rich DP with so much pie crust, white truffle and dried apple and pineapple character. Limestone too. Full body, layered and flavorful. Lovely texture of fine bubbles. Very rich at the end but then turns fresh and vibrant. Contrast now between ripe fruit and fresh acidity. Perfect now.

97 Points Antonio Galloni
The 1998 Dom Pérignon P2 is superb. Just starting to soften, the 1998 is beautifully layered in the glass, with a translucent, vertical sense of structure that is compelling and an attractive top note of reduction that adds freshness. Vibrant and yet wonderfully complex, the 1998 is a gorgeous wine for drinking now and over the next two decades or so. This is a very strong showing. With more and more time, the 1998 seems to have acquired an additional dimension of nuance. This is an especially majestic bottle of the 1998.

18.5/20 Jancis Robinson
Green, leafy, garden notes on the nose initially, which developed into something floral. Quite a rich start. I could certainly drink this now! Open and particularly friendly already but with the tension of an especially classic Dom Pérignon. Just slight chewiness on the end
