Champagne Dom Perignon 1992

Champagne, FranceFrom the cellar. Now 31 years on, this is still alive, with that exceptional Dom signature presence. Grand Cru Pinot from Aÿ and Bouzy are blended with chardonnay from Chouilly, Cramant, and Mesnil-sur-Oger, mixing PN power and strength, with chardy elegance and finesse. This spent 6-8 years on lees prior to disgorge.This changed numerous times throughout the evening, but never disappointed. Light smoked stone, dough, brioche, opens, and then weaves throughout the palate, alongside ample fire toasted marshmallow, caramelized apricot compote, crystalline white honey, wet chalk, and earthy button mushrooms. A fine bead of acidity streams this through an exceptionally long salt studded finish. Impressive for 30+ year old wine.Tasted: 02 July 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
