The Story

“Dom Perignon’s creation is centered upon its absolute dedication to vintage wines. Each Vintage wine is created from the best grapes grown in one single year – a true challenge for a unique interpretation of the seasons, and for reinvention. The uniqueness of Dom Perignon vintages lies in the way they evolve – not steadily and in a linear way but by successive windows of expression that are called “Plenitudes”. Reaching new heights and revealing the spirit of Dom Perignon even more distinctly, it is only at these times that the wine is worthy of a new release.

Dom Pérignon wines follow the rhythm of three plénitudes: the first after seven years maturing on their lees; the second between eleven and twenty years; and the third beyond twenty. In the darkness of our cellars, from one plénitude to the next, Dom Pérignon will grow and blossom, transmuting time into energy….to reach the third plénitude, when the spirit of Dom Pérignon fully reveals itself. At this stage, Dom Pérignon’s complexity becomes unsurpassed. The lineage of all the vintages in their third plénitude represents the living memory of Dom Pérignon, transmitting this heritage through generations of Chefs de Cave.

Vintage 1990

Three excellent vintages in Champagne were 1988, 1989 and 1990. Initially, many considered 1990 the finest of the trio, but that mantle has since passed to 1988. Some of the 1990 champagnes have evolved more quickly than anticipated, and there can be variation among bottles and producers. Winter and early spring saw warm weather that resulted in an early bud-break, making vines susceptible to the spring frost which duly arrived in April. This led to some uneven ripening and differing levels of maturity owing to the second generation of grapes that appeared after the frost damage and thus ripened later. The summer was generally dry and warm, which produced big, powerful, concentrated and full-flavoured wines.

Written Notes

Good looking magnum size bottle, in an perfect condition and has by the neck level. Colour is salmon, deep, full and youthful . On the nose it is open, intense, wide, fresh, opulent, seductive and round. The taste is harmonious, focused, vigor, perfumed, refined, full-bodied, with balanced, multi-dimensional, good texture and concentrated structure. On the palate it is layered and has dried-fruit, licorice, honey, toasty, tropical fruits, truffles, citrus and bread flavours. The finish is long, extensive, flavorful and pure. This wine is sophisticated, transparent and outstanding. Perfectly stored bottles are still very worthy and will last well for another 10-15 years and decant at least 15min before tasting.
