This is by far the best Dom Perignon I've had at such an early stage. Very drinkable now, but will get unbelievably good in the next decade to come. Have piled this in the cellar and won't touch it for at least 5 years. This is the kind of champagne to buy 12 bottles, and drink one a year starting 2015. Always fun to see how this evolves, hope it has the potential to surpass the 1996, which I had last week and was perfection, but still young.
