Tasting Notes

These four vintages of Dom Pérignon provide a fascinating snapshot of how the house has performed in recent years. The 1999 Dom Pérignon is a little flabbier than the 2000. Smoke, toastiness, tar and ripe fruit emerge from the glass in a generous, expansive style. The 1999 offers more body than the 2000 but the aromas and flavors are less well-articulated. This is a relatively simple Dom Pérignon, yet the wine possesses outstanding balance and plenty of harmony. According to Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy the warm vintage also resulted in relatively high yields, and the low-acid style is most reminiscent of the 1976.

Score: 93Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, January 2009

The most recent vintage of Dom Perignon...1999...is a winner....maybe not quite as exquisite as the 1996 or 1990...but every bit as brilliant as their 1995....gotta be the world's greatest wine given the enormous quantities they produce....a remarkable achievement.

 Robert Parker, Mark Squires' Bulletin Board, March 2007

There’s a high-toned, minty graphite accent to the aroma, with a citric edge on the palate. The structure is overlaid with lemon and dough notes. This is tight and crisp on the finish, so break out the sole or shellfish, or wait a few years. Best from 2008 through 2020.

Score: 90Bruce Sanderson, WineSpectator.com, May 2007

Very pale. Smoky, slightly sweetly perfumed nose - very much in the ripe idiom of this vintage. Very tight bead with Dom P’s characteristic citrus note at the end but very little sign of any obvious autolysis.
