    (Dom Perignon) A 1990 Dom Perignon that followed was tough to drink thereafter. It was pungent and grassy, and despite being very fresh and with a great finish, I wanted to go back to the Mercier. It ain’t easy to go young after you’ve gone old, at least for wine (92+).

    Hong Kong Diaries, 10/4/2009 95+M points

    (Dom Perignon) The evening started off innocently enough with a magnum of 1990 Dom Perignon, which was very fresh out of magnum, much younger than out of bottle, as it should be. It was clean with great acidity, as well as mineral, spice, cement and straw aromas. With excellent definition and length in the mouth, it got even breadier over time, like toast soaked in oil. Yum (95+M).

    (Dom Perignon) We warmed up with a 1990 Dom Perignon, which was one of the better bottles of this that I have had recently. It was rich, nutty and beefy, a bit of a bruiser, but long and full of structure

    Dinner with Jay and Anne, 9/15/2005 95 points

    (Dom Perignon) Roger was running late, and Jay and I started to become dizzy and confused without a bottle open between us. He quickly remedied that situation with a 1990 Dom Perignon. The 1990 DP had a toasty nose, just right in that regard. There was great balance with its granulated sugar sex appeal, and bread joined the aroma party with a rye twist. Alexander admired its ‘floral’ qualities, and Jay its ‘freshness.’ This was about as good a bottle of 1990 Dom that I have had, and there have certainly been lesser ones, a fact echoed by Jay. Hints of apple were on the palate, and it got cracker crispy in the glass. It s acidity was outstanding, and so was the bubbly

    Dom Perignon, 12 Angry Men, Auction Lunch and a Holiday Party, 12/13/2004 95 points

    (Dom Perignon) The 1990 had a nose full of white chocolate initially, so much so that finding another descriptor was difficult. Those aromas carried over to the palate, which was also bready, (white) meaty and earthy with some straw and tobacco behind it. Justin thought the bubbles .seemed finer. and also mentioned that he thought Champagne was the hardest beverage for which to do tasting notes

    (Moët et Chandon Cuvée Dom Pérignon) Fine, elegant nose; almonds and cream. Fresh and balanced palate, vibrant acidity with a creamy-edged texture. Full, almond notes. Great finesse here. Wonderful structure for future ageing; needs a further five to ten years and should probably drink beyond that. Excellent.
