Discover More About Our Products

The 1990 harvest was distinguished by its exceptional composition and the uniform quality of the musts throughout the Champagne region. This harvest is an unmistakable example of the persistence and determination of the Dom Pérignon house, who, despite the storms of time, managed to extract the best of the best.

In 1990, after a stage of rapid growth of the vines, the Champagne region suffered harsh spring frosts and the flowering was affected by a cold and rainy climate. Buds were lost and the growth of the grapes was uneven, but persistence and faith had its rewards in the abundance of bunches and the thickness of the branches.

This, accompanied by a wise wait, was followed by a summer accompanied by a heatwave that lasted until the arrival of the generous rains in the days before the harvest on September 11th, resulting in a few musts of exceptional warmth that brought to light a full and round wine of undisputed harmony and delicate and silky flavours, with floral aromas and notes of almonds and nuts. Dom Pérignon Vintage 1990 invites you to enjoy the harmony of quality.

Increible champagne

4 /5

Het smaakte me eerst de kleur. Ik hield van de geur van de bakkerij. Rook notities in de mond.
Een Dom Perignon die we als een dessert gebruiken na een goed eten.
Ik dronk het met mijn beste vriend.

Provei porque o trouxeram como novidade ao meu restaurante habitual.
Gostei especialmente da cor. Mistura de aromas de levedura e padaria. Ficou melhor um pouco mais fresco.

Cor atrativa e intensa. Deixava um odor a padaria. Gosto de pão torrado, muito saboroso.
Ficou perfeito com a refeição.

4/5

- Nose: The immediate impression is of the mildness of the pure, airy, bright bouquet. A floral, fruity pastel tone then unfolds and quickly darkens into candied fruit, ripe hay and toasted notes, along with hints of licorice.
- Palate: The wine's opulence - contained and succulent, round at heart - reveals itself in the mouth. The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy. The whole eventually melts into an exquisite bitterness tinged with the briny taste of the sea
- The weather in 2006 was mixed, but warm and dry overall. While July was scorching hot, August was unusually cool and wet. The almost summery weather in September made the vintage possible by drying out the few patches of botrytis and maturing the grapes far more than usual. The harvest began on September 11 and lasted nearly four weeks.

4/5

I tasted it with wine enthusiasts.
Typical opacity of a Dom Pérignon. Very yeasty and biscuity on the nose. The Dom Pérignon Vintage is a well-bodied wine.
The best of the meal was this wine.
