Tasting notes:

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate #162 (Dezember 2005): 98/100

The brilliant 1996 Dom Perignon, which has largely disappeared from the marketplace, may be the finest young example of DP I have ever tasted. Notes of crushed rocks, honeysuckle, lemon oil, orange marmalade, and white pear provide a stunning aromatic display as well as palate impression. Great acidity and huge flavor intensity backed up by vibrant acidity make this an exquisite Champagne.

Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator (August 2004): 93/100

This features floral, candied citrus, pencil shaving and hazelnut aromas and flavors. It's fresh and focused, with a firm structure offset by a mouthfilling richness and a lacy texture. Not a blockbuster, but seamless and seductive in its approach.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Oktoberi 2014): 95/100

One of the more accessible wines of the year today, the 1996 Dom Pérignon impresses for its exceptional balance and class. Lemon peel, white flowers and mint are laced together in the glass. The 1996 is in a terrific place today where it can be enjoyed or cellared for a number of years.

Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com (Juni 2012): 19/20

Very concentrated and very dry on the finish - perhaps because of the relatively high acidity. Quite a bit of development on the nose but no excess richness. Very firm and well out of its shell. Complex and tight knit. A 'serious' Dom P better suited to the table than more casual drinking. Magnificent concentration.

Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.
