This kind of champagne is my favorite. Full-bodied, pinot noir dominated. Is amazing now, but will last at least for another 10 years or so. Cannot wait for the 2002.

Great wine. Just tasted this from half bottle (375ml) and it's already evolved a great deal. Still has 2-3 years to go before it gets to 5 stars. For 750ml bottle you'll have to wait at least 6+ years. Bordeaux's drink best at 10 years of age, had Cos D'Estournel 2000 a month ago, and it's perfection.
Great champagne, but very different than the 2002 Cristal. This will age much quicker and will be very good in a year or two. If you can still get the 2002 for about the same price, I would recommend getting that instead.
This is a wonderful champagne. Not a full bodied champagne, does get there if you cellar it for 10 years. Recently had the 1990, which was unbelievable. Can drink this now, but would recommend cellaring this for at least 8-10 years, but it's hard to keep your hands off.
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.
