Dom Perignon 1990 75 cl

Harmony achieved
Dom Pérignon is vintage champagne only.
Each Vintage wine is created from the finest grapes grown in one single year. Reinventing itself by interpreting the unique character of the seasons. Daring not to release a Vintage if the harvest does not meet its ideal.
After at least eight years of elaboration in the cellars, the wine then embodies the perfect balance of Dom Pérignon, its greatest promise. This is Dom Pérignon Vintage, the Plénitude of harmony.

The 1990 Harvest

After a particularly rapid spurt in vegetation growth, the Champagne region is hit hard by spring frosts in April. Blossoming is therefore difficult in the cold and rainy conditions. Blossom drop and uneven grape development are only compensated by the large number of bunches and the wide branches. A heat wave summer then sets in and remains until the generous downpours in the days leading up to the harvest, (on September 11). The musts boast an exceptional composition and homogenous quality; throughout the Champagne region.

Description

On the nose, initial floral nose gives way to notes of fresh almonds, dried apricots and toasted brioche.
In the mouth, the wine is full and round without being opulent and expresses great harmony. The attack is definite and intense leading to a silky finish reminiscent of preserved citrus fruits.

Chardonnay , Pinot Noir

Lobster, crab, caviar, foie gras, strawberries

Chilled at 10°C – 12°C

Pale color. Youthful aromas of lemon, quince, pear, toast, spice, chalk and red berries. Big, sweet and seamless, if a bit clenched in the early going. A powerful, very young wine whose fruit builds slowly in the mouth and explodes on the finish. A charry note contributes to its complexity. Possesses amazing depth of fruit, but the high quality of this wine can most easily be seen today on the extraordinary finish. May ultimately merit a 95+ rating.

93+/100 (November 1998)

At the peak of its drinking age the 1990 Dom Perignon is simply stunning, smooth and crisp on the palate with hints of pear, apple, citrus, strawberries, fine bubbles that only come with a correctly aged Champagne. In my top 3 favourite DP’s together with the 1996 and 2002. Enjoyed this together with Foie gras and fig jam, Spanish Bellota Jamon & Queso Currado. For dessert strawberries and wild berries mixed with natural yogurt was wonderful.
