Delicious. Soft and open. Lots of secondary flavors but still fresh with a good mousse. Good length too, but not as thrilling as some bottles I’ve had. This one on the start of the downslope but a gorgeous wine.

Pretty crummy photo but this is 96 dom perignon. A beautiful example of this house, the vintage and a well stored wine. Fine bubbles with lots of persistence. Still young. Always delicious. What a wine!

Soft and delicious. Gorgeous balance with lemon, brioche, subtle minerality. Mature but still fresh with real sweetness.

This was one of the better bottles of wine I’ve had in a while... Unreal layers of complexity, bright floral notes, and toasty brioche flavors. The acid, structure, and weight were seamless.

Pale light gold color. Tight nose at first but opens up with air. Rich in the mouth with steady acidity and great mouth feel. Gives a nice impactful finish. A better sample of this than many previous bottles I’ve tried. Really good tonight.

Medium gold with vibrant bubbles. A bit more of a subdued nose than the 02 Taittinger CDC next to it. Notes of lemon, apricot, white stones and some tan spice. Has a bit more of a complexity to it. Rich and glycerol in the mouth. Has some lovely but subtle power in the finish. Not the best of the bottles of this I’ve had. But still a nice treat.

Soft brioche, settled citrus, hints of shells and a salinity. Secondary notes coming through- honeysuckle, biscuit. Delicate and sophisticated- perfectly in place.

The 1996 Dom Perignon is a revelation at now twenty three years of age. On the nose this takes on some spectacular range from Challah bread tones to lemon zest as well as Pink Lady apple and candied ginger. Once on the attack this shows formidable weight and tension, while this seamless wine effortlessly dances across the mid-palate. Ripe Japanese pear, brioche, lemon zest and wild mushroom flavors collide with the strong salinity and minerality. A true heavyhitter, this wine has many rounds left to fight, but is simply intoxicating at this stage in its development. Drink 2019-2040- 98

Serious bottles but still backward.

Great young color with nice small bubbles. Nose of citrus, apples, toasted bread and a little hazelnut. Nice mouthfeel. Not the best example of this wine for me, but not the worst either.
