(1999 Vintage) Smoke, toastiness, tar and ripe fruit emerge from the glass in a generous, expansive style. The 1999 offers more body than the 2000 but the aromas and flavors are less well-articulated. This is a relatively simple Dom Perignon, yet the wine possesses outstanding balance and plenty of harmony.
classy marginally better than 2000. will develop. 03/11 jade palace. developed a bit more. v nice drunk after a burgundy white and red and came in well. delicious and will develop even more. 12/11 standing up well against top blanc de blancs. plays a good supporting role against the Krug 96. will certainly develop. 12/11 another good showing at Xmas dinner. rothschild not too far behind 02/12 rubato. lovely and seductive with grilled scallops and squid.
sorry but it smells like champagne!!! but taste wow really smooth, hints of ginger and my friend say hints of sour lychees
