Having never experienced such a vast and stellar line up of near impossible to find Champagne vintages the first thing that comes to mind was the mind-blowing experience of the Dom Perignon 1952 P1 100/100 and to have the amazing fortune to be able to enjoy two bottles of the Dom Perignon 1955 P1 97/100.

Other absolute standouts of the night where the Dom Perignon 1975 Oenotheque 100/100, the Dom Perignon 1970 Oenotheque 100/100, and the 1982 P1 Magnum 98/100,
