Dark gold. Fully mature and mellowed out with ripe butterscotch, caramel and hints of burnt sugar. Ripe, dense and warm. I would guess this was probably better from 750ml earlier in it's life but still such a pleasure to drink.

(Dom Perignon) out of magnum. Fresh, lightly creamy and meaty, the 1982 was showing excellently with some sweet nutty fruit, hazelnuts, butter and seltzer. In the mouth, the fruit was rich, tasty, creamy and nutty, and its palate was lightly spritely, balanced and beautiful. Its richness and sweetness were one step short of outstanding, but this was still toasty and smooth and certainly benefited by being served out of magnum, which makes a big difference for Champagne in lesser years and after age twenty
