(Dom Perignon) The 1949 Dom Perignon was more advanced than the Pommery, more wine-like but still with some petillance and delicious in its own right. There was more texture and a sense of grandeur, but this bottle was already in a graceful declining stage. It might have been the bottle, or it might be ’49 DP in general. I guess I will have to have it again. Good thing I know Rob! Back to the DP…it was rich, saucy and almost soupy, sweet and delicious in its ‘On Golden Pond’ way
(Dom Perignon) a touch oxidized but not as bad as the 1959, more so in that benevolent, British way. Bernard called it .vin santo. and there was that fino style to this bottle, which was still drinkable but not perfect. It did have good texture still
