    Not sure if I like this or Grand Cuvee Krug better but this wine, this vintage, offers just a little more freshness. Overall I prefer those with more body and not just acid.

    November 27, 2021 - White pineapple, white peach, apple pie, stone and rattan. Such a refreshing acidity and lovely beading, with a savory, long finish. Gorgeous body. There’s ginger and pain grille all throughout. This concentrated, stunning Champagne will age very well and is very enjoyable today. Drink now - 2037.

    November 26, 2021 - not blind

    At Dom Perignon Hautvillers

    Blanc 2012, 2010, 2008, P2 2003, P2 2002, P2 1998, P3 1992
    Rose 20008, 2006, P2 1995

    2012
    typical nose after oyster shell, toast, refreshing acidity, citrus, well drinkable at the moment. Dosage between 4-6g/L. I preferred against 2010. 96

    2010
    more reluctant compared to 2012, some exotic fruits, makes fun to drink it now. Not the potential as 2008. 93

    2008
    Still great to drink. Lush, exotic fruits, sea breeze, balanced, powerful, still fresh. Roasted almonds, salted caramell. 98

    P2 2003
    Feels broader than the P2 2002, less acidity, lots of mango and pineapple, less oyster shell than 2002. 94

    P2 2002
    more acidity than 2003, but my problem with this wine, it has an unnecessary high dosage. 95

    P2 1998
    More complex and structured than 2002 at the moment, some nice honey notes to give depth and creamieness. 96

    Rose 2008
    The nose is full of red berries and red apples, some black currant. A sublime champagne which will be released next week. Raspberry sirup but still elegant and powerful. 97

    Rose 2006
    For a 2006 good but no chance against 2008. Maybe a hint too alcoholic and the finish too short. 94

    P2 Rose 1995
    PN nose, comparable to a Musigny, smoky, flinty, balanced, at least 10 more years. 97

    P3 1992
    Unbelievable fresh, toasty, citric and just a touch of rostaed aromas. Nice 1992. 96

    November 20, 2021 - Vinen overrasket med en utrolig modenhet og åpenhet som jeg ikke fant snev av fra flasken fra i sommer. Sjømineraler på duft, med modne epler og sitroner. Høy syre. Fyldig i munnen med lang, deilig lengde. Vinen er elegant med nydelig kremet mousse, og sørget for gjentatte høydepunkt gjennom hele kvelden!

    November 18, 2021 - First taste of a 2010 Dom. Yeasty with a pronounced minerality, nice fruit (I picked up pineapple, if I recall), and maybe some toastiness or spice. Not too effervescent as we drank it in coupe glasses.

    November 18, 2021 - My 7th and 8th tasting so far for 2021. Pronounced nose intensity with consistent notes of yeasty, toasty, biscuit, bread, lemon. High acidity. The difference on your tasting will be the temperature and type of glass used, flute or white wine glasses.

    November 17, 2021 - Very floral and fruitty. I get candied orange peel. Still have that Dom Perignon taste, but not as pronounced as years past.

    November 7, 2021 - I had a memorable bottle of this in August, and the bottle I had this evening was not very good. It was a little flat and flabby with no zest. An off bottle; what a shame.
