1998 Dom Perignon, Möet and Chandon, Champagne, France

1998 Dom Perignon. A higher level than Ruinart, but a slightly disappointing Dom P. The nose is alright. Still excused for its youth ness, but charming with classic moves. But the intensity and vibe is missing and it’s too light. The taste seems first concentrated, but missing final precision on the back palate as the mouse gets stuck on the mid palate. A pleasant drink at this stage, but way below the level of the hyped ’96. (88)
