To taste Dom Perignon is to discover the unique spirit and style of a truly great French Champagne.
Every stage of vineyard selection, winemaking and slow cellar aging is, in itself, a quest for perfection. The unique Dom Perignon style is a rich creamy mousse, fine bubbles, a spirited, crisp opening leading into a broad palette of aromas and tastes and finally, the delicacy of the substance itself
"I have had a lot of great vintages of Dom Perignon, but I do not remember any as impressive as the 1996. Even richer than the brilliant 1990, the 1996 is still tightly wound, but reveals tremendous aromatic intensity, offering hints of bread dough, Wheat Thins, tropical fruits, and roasted hazelnuts. Medium to full-bodied, with crisp acidity buttressing the wines wealth of fruit and intensity, it comes across as extraordinarly zesty, well-delineated, and incredibly long on the palate. Moet-Chandon deserves considerable accolades for this prodigious example of Dom Perignon. Anticipated maturity: now-2020+"

Being an amateur winemaker since 1986, and a collector of red wines since that time, I appreciate a good vintage.
I recently purchased the '96 DP and can say that it addresses the embodiment of champagne like no other I've tasted.
I plan to reserve a few bottles for a later date. Perhaps I'll share these with friends in a year or 2.

The Dom Perignon 1996 vintage is very very frothy and vibrant in the glass. It tastes like citrus/creame, a hint of candied ginger, and has a strong tingly finish. It will age nicely for several years. If you asked me to rate it, I would give it a 97 rating. Unique.....

In the immortal words of Lily Bollinger, "I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory...Otherwise I never touch it, unless I'm thirsty." That "it" is champagne and this is the very best. I recommend buying in bulk, because if you are like the great lady (and I am), you'll polish off a case in no time.
