 Tasted by Drink&Trade on 6/17/2015 & rated 95 points: Beautiful Apple, citrus. Just a lovely example of Champagne. (1859 views)
 Tasted by Pacalet on 6/14/2015 & rated 91 points: Tasted in magnum, still rather tight nose with pear and citrus. Fine mousse, elegant and not a big Dom, finish slightly lacking. Perhaps still too young to be consumed? (1814 views)
 Tasted by don_quichotte on 6/6/2015 & rated 91 points: Very serviceable - don't remember much. I wouldn't buy it at today's price. (2053 views)
 Tasted by BuzzzzOff on 5/16/2015 & rated 93 points: Wow, this bubble is sipping beautifully now. Toasty, creamy and smooth. Sipping better than the 1999 and will last for quite a few more years. (2785 views)
 Tasted by Milliontown on 5/1/2015 flawed bottle: My first ever Dom.
Corked :'(

Opened for a special occasion too, but I held my tongue and happily enjoyed it, as I didn't want to offend the host. But all I could smell was wet cardboard.

Sigh. (3234 views)
 Tasted by dcwino on 4/22/2015 & rated 92 points: Cheval Blanc and D'Yquem dinner with Pierre Lurton and Bernard Burtschy (Taberna del Alabardero, Washington D.C.): As Bernard Burtschy pointed out, this was pretty tight. Fresh white fruits, citrus, granny smith, white pepper and mineral. Medium concentration, fine mousse, good acidity and clean medium finish. It is interesting that the 02 has opened up beautifully all of sudden in the last few months where the 00 remains youthful. Also this is more linear/cooler but less concentrated than the 02. For my palate the 02 is superior, about three points higher in general. Still very nice way to start. (2936 views)
 Tasted by yaCellar on 4/18/2015 & rated 92 points: Lemon, melon, so full, fantastic bubbles, thoroughly enjoyable, but horrible QPR. Was thinking of a better Champagne at less than half the price. wedding gift! (2519 views)
 Tasted by tcarter on 4/17/2015 & rated 97 points: Peter Bothe's 40th Birthday (Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak in Glendale): Near perfect champagne for me. Loved. Paired beautifully with raw bar crab legs and shrimp. (2557 views)
 Tasted by wirelesswine on 4/13/2015 & rated 94 points: Absolutely fantastic and in a great spot. Persistent bead, light golden color, fragrant nose, and lots of fruit on the palate with vibrancy that was exciting...more of a fruit driven profile than a yeasty one and did not disappoint. (2234 views)
 Tasted by etyc on 3/7/2015: 1st Vivino Int'l chapter in Singapore (Sat. evening/night), Part-2 (Park Regis restaurant): After the incredible afternoon, this was a prelude/aperitif to what's to come over dinner. Nothing like the '85 Dom which kickstarted our afternoon adventure, this was still good. We got brioche, nuts on the nose. Fine mousse, bright acidity and a good dose of minerality and citrus on the palate. Maybe I'm wanting too much... but this didn't have the complexity of the '85, or the power/depth of the '90. Nonetheless, a nice drink to start the dinner! (2884 views)
 Tasted by hsacks on 3/4/2015 & rated 93 points: Light yellow color with a very lively, fine mousse. Aromas of summer melons, minerals and yeast. Rich but beautifully balanced and structured fruit in the mouth with great depth and persistence on the palate. This powerful yet lithe Champagne was delicious with the outstanding food at Little Fish Restaurant. Still very youthful, this wine may rate an even higher score with a few more years of bottle age. (2720 views)
 Tasted by AWBryce on 2/24/2015 & rated 92 points: Nose of earth, light coconut, old green apples and a touch of yeast. Creamy on the palate, good fruit, very light effervescence, solid finish. (2989 views)
 Tasted by Veg on 2/15/2015 & rated 95 points: Gorgeous ! (2982 views)
 Tasted by AlanM68 on 2/13/2015 & rated 92 points: Wow! Outperformed expectations. Smooth, rich, very together, great length. Drinking perfectly from a decanter - some air and a chance to warm from fridge temperature. (2933 views)
 Tasted by Barry Rothof on 1/16/2015 & rated 92 points: LUNCH @ CALLAS (The Hague): This DP has a ripe soft texture with nutty, toasty and ripe peach flavors all in balance with soft acids. Sumptuous, rich and ready to drink. (3576 views)
 Tasted by Burgaddict on 1/9/2015 & rated 92 points: New Years Lunch in The Hague: Typical Dom Perignon, always a feast to drink! Fresh nose, citrus, brioche, soft mousse. Taste also fresh, citrus, minerals, creamy, elegant. (3343 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 1/3/2015 & rated 93 points: Completely blind, but what a pleasure to have this wine in the glass again. Beautiful citrus and minerals in the bouquet as well as on the palate. The wine develops in the glass and a bit later there are some pleasant reductive impressions and almonds. Nicely dry. A beautiful and mature Champagne. (3045 views)
 Tasted by Mark81 on 1/3/2015 & rated 90 points: Birthday dinner with the best wine kakis at Sichuan Douhua. Yellowish gold. Nose was slightly muted, with good acidity, minerals, green apples, lemon and whiffs of butter. Palate had some age, but with good freshness and acidity. Kiwis, lemon cream, meringue intitally, after time there were more secondary flavours like toffee, butter, toast and oil. Lacking on the mid palate, and seemed to lack that extra bit of complexity I would expect from an aged Dom. Good wine. (3040 views)
 Tasted by Fastmarc on 1/1/2015: Was past its window. Had to dump unfortunately. (2842 views)
 Tasted by cweiss on 12/31/2014: NYE Eastman. Deep and satisfying. Good acidity. Drinking well but certainly life ahead of it. (2089 views)
 Tasted by birchler on 12/16/2014 & rated 92 points: Extrem gut. Trocken aber nicht zuviel. (3226 views)
 Tasted by NostraBacchus on 12/3/2014 & rated 94 points: Lighter golden color. Very fine mousse. Beautiful nose of brioche, ripe pear, citrus, minerality, a touch of mint. On the palate there are notes of pear again, peach, minerals, apricot, chalk. It's medium-full bodied and elegant, with medium+ acidity. Small bubble and a very refined mousse. Long finish that ends with a touch of bitterness adding complexity. A very pretty Dom Perignon that is ready to drink now. (3894 views)
 Tasted by Hajoha on 11/23/2014 & rated 93 points: Spennende tiltalende nese med bra intensitet.
Flott konsentrasjon, og friskhet.
Lang finish som prikker godt i munnhulen.
Ved release var jeg ikke imponert.
En slags metallisk element som forstyrret. Kommet seg veldig, og dette er bra! 92-93p (3500 views)
 Tasted by Genghis88 on 10/18/2014 & rated 91 points: CAD Thanksgiving @ Chez Carmichel's with the Gang

Clean, clear, fresh, effervescent, green apples, slight brioche
Oyster shell minerality, steely, tightly wound, metallic, gooseberries
Medium finish, yeasty
We all enjoyed the night's opener. One can never go wrong with a bottle of Dom (4516 views)
 Tasted by jlgnml on 8/31/2014 & rated 94 points: Jumped out of the glass, yeast, cellar tone, full body, really developing and had this 2x this week and a good wow factor. (6261 views)

Champagne Blend

The typical champagne blend is of three grapes - Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. Wines labeled as 'Blanc de Blancs' are by definition all Chardonnay, and wines labeled as 'Blanc de Noirs' contain Pinot Noir, Meunier or both in the blend.

There are how ever three additional grape varieties planted (Arbane, Petit Meslier and Pinot Blanc) and used in Champagne, they could be called legacy grapes and do not represent significant portion of the grapes used (<0.01%?). It is not permitted to plant more of these varieties.

However, sparkling wines that are not Champagne (i.e. not grown in the area legally allowed that name in France) may be made of several other grapes, too. For example, Markko Vineyards 'Excelsior' was given the name 'Champagne' with tongue-in-cheek, as the winemaker has embarked on a program to educate his consumers away from the use of the 'C' word. This wine is actually made like many German Sekts, from Riesling.

France - When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of consistent quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.

Champagne - The French region of Champagne (including the cities of Rheims, Épernay, and Aÿ) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and wine-making traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range in sweetness ranging from an extra brut or brut 0, to the basic brut to demi sec to doux; some houses produce single vintage champagnes and others produce non-vintage (or incorporate wines/grapes of multiple vintages), often to preserve a specific taste; combinations of grape varietals; and colors, including a rosé. There are several sub-appellations, including the Valley of the Marnes river running from Épernay west, Massif de Saint-Thierry north and west of Rheims, Valley of the Ardre, the Mountains of Rheims (between Rheims and Épernay), Côte des Blancs, Côte de Sézanne, and Côte des Bar in the South. Champagne wine only uses three grape varietals (cépages): Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier.
