Patience is undoubtedly an indisputable characteristic that accompanies the wisdom of the Dom Pérignon Vintage house when it comes to offering the best of its vintages. The 1998 harvest was marked by two opposing and unusual events, the high temperatures of August spectacularly burned the grapes, and then the strong and intense rainfall just before the harvest gave way to a sweet wait full of rewards. The good weather after the rains allowed for the optimum point of ripeness in the harvested grapes. Dom Pérignon Vintage 1998 offers delicate aromas of fresh almonds, grapefruit, and spices, while in the mouth it displays a pleasant velvety, creamy sensation next to the intense but balanced flavor as a whole. This harvest is an invitation to enjoy the pleasure of 'sweet' waiting.

How to serve
Reviews of Dom Perignon Vintage 1998
- 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.
Dom Perignon 2006
Fantastic colour. Very yeasty and biscuity on the nose. It had a correct astringency.
I took this Champagne during a brunch.
