Deuxième et dernière bouteille de Dom. Pé. Rosé 1982: la première ( bu le 31/12/2009) avec une robe presque marron était tout en sous-bois et en truffe cette deuxième avec une robe plus orangée, de nombreuses bulles très fines était un concentré de brioche et d'huile de noix avec une douceur qui est apparu une demie-heure après l'ouverture - une expérience olfactive et gustative extraordinaire.

(Dom Perignon Rose) which was quite fresh with beautiful red fruits. Long, smooth and balanced, the 1982 was excellent but a touch short of outstanding and not as good as previous memories of this out of magnum. It didn't have that extra lift, although Pat found it 'ten times better with the egg and truffle dish,' which was a true breakfast of champions
(Dom Perignon Rose) was no slouch, either, as its nose exploded out of the glass with more chocolaty bread and strawberry fruit. The palate was big and brawny, but its flavors struck me as a bit oaky. The palate was still very fresh, with more razor-like qualities to its overall impression, both clearer and quicker as well yet not as meaty and full of cherry fruit as the Cristal. The nose got crusty in a rye bread way. The Dom might outlive the Cristal, but it lacked the expansion and expression of the Cristal on this evening, and the oaky streak bothered me a bit on the palate
