Lot 278

Dom Perignon
Brut, 1990
1 (1 x 1) 750ml
In the 17th century, the monk Dom Pierre Pérignon nurtured an ambition to create “the best wine in the world”. Three centuries later, Dom Pérignon perpetuates this exceptional artisan’s vision and work, and he is now considered to be the spiritual father of Champagne. Dom Pérignon vintages are produced using the best grapes on the estate. Each one is a unique creation with a style and an identity which are unique to its vintage.

The profoundly rich 1990 Dom Perignon is a creamy-textured, full styled offering that loses none of its elegance in spite of its flavor authority. It will improve for 5-10 years, and appears capable of surpassing the fabulous 1985 and 1982. It seems obvious that the quality of the 1990 Champagne vintage is going to be remarkable, and the world-wide demand will be unprecedented. The message - buy them now!  - Robert Parker 96/100 (1997)

Expressive, smoky and somehow even reductive - even at this age! So characterful. Bready, rich, savoury and salty - has a bit of umami / soy character - distinctive and substantial. - Richard Hemming MW JancisRobinson.com 18/20 (2013)
