What could be a more suitable champagne to propose with than vintage Dom Perignon? A moderately deep golden colour indicates its age, though not excessively dark in hue. A vibrant, complex nose of pear, almond, marzipan and butter. Incredibly vibrant and fresh. The palate has superb acidity, quite nutty and citrus; sweet but honeyed. Still vigorous and vibrant though it lacks the sophistication and poise of the 1969. At its peak now. Delicious. Tasted July 2004.
