Tasted at Christies’/Linden Wilkie’s 1971 dinner. This bottle of Dom Perignon (original disgorgement) is slightly paler than the Cristal 1971 served alongside. It has that devastatingly gorgeous bouquet that is intoxicating right from the off. Walnut, dried honey, even a hint of marmalade all with exceptional delineation. The palate is beautifully balanced with perfect acidity. There are subtle motes of citrus peel, mandarin, crushed stone and honeysuckle, but there are just distant hints of flavor because it is the tension and the precision that defined this magnificent DP. Outstanding! Tasted April 2011.
Stored on it’s side in a climate controlled cellar since purchase.
Please note: The bottle shown is the exact bottle being sold.
Fill level about 1″ down from the foil. Color of the wine inside has darkened due to age. Clarity seems excellent once any fine sediments are left to settle.
