I imagine this will go up by a point or two in the next few years but it’s crazy young. That being said, it’s quite easy to sip. Creamy on the front palate...bubbles are so tiny it’s hard to pick them out. Toasted brioche, limestone, honeyed cashews show once this has had an hour+ to open. Dom always has such a nice mid-palate of candied fruit and toasted honeycomb. Give it time!

Delicate nuttiness, orange rind, a bready note. Tawny gold in color. A soft, rounded palate. Very in place and fully mature with stewed peaches, caramel and delicate acidity. Lovely stuff

Tasted blind. Medium gold. Persistent small bubbles. Notes of apricot, peach and some yeast in the nose. Great texture in the mouth. This improved over an hour as it got more air. Very nice.

On the nose; yellow lilies, lemon custard, lime, green apple, pineapple, sea spray, cream soda, touch of ginger ale, bread, yeast, brioche, soft minerals, cream & jasmine.

On the palate; green apple, pineapple, lemon custard, lime, cream soda, ginger ale, gritty volcanic minerals that really penetrate the palate, sea shells, cream, bruised golden apples, brioche, yeast, yellow lilies, jasmine, beautiful acidity and a long, rich, well polished finish.

Unmistakable Dom toastiness and autolysis nuances but perhaps lacking the finesse, power and precision of greater vintages. Always good to drink though. 👍🏼🍾🥂

A gorgeous Dom that has balance and intensity in equal measure. It's going to be a keeper. Great structure and complexity that will only get better over time.
