1990 Dom Perignon Oenotheque Vintage Champagne 1990 (Original Gift Box)
1990 Dom Perignon Oenotheque Vintage Champagne 1990 (Original Gift Box) from Vintage Wine Gifts
From the outstanding 1990 vintage and one of the great Champagnes of the 20th Century, the notes from Moet Chamdon are printed below: ON THE PALATE A penetrating, harmonious, precise richness without opulence. Persistent notes of candied citrus peels affirm themselves, becoming a vigorous and silky blend. ON THE NOSE Complex aromas of roasted coffee and woody spice quickly merge with notes of barley sugar and dried citrus peel. THE 1990 HARVEST After a particularly rapid spurt in vegetation growth, the Champagne region is hit hard by spring frosts in April. Blossoming is therefore difficult in the cold and rainy conditions. Blossom drop and uneven grape development are only compensated by the large number of bunches and the wide branches. A heat wave summer then sets in and remains until the generous downpours in the days leading up to the harvest, (on September 11). The musts boast an exceptional composition and homogenous quality; throughout the Champagne region. Drink now – 2040. This vintage Champagne is shipped in it’s original gift box with four wine accessories (corkscrew, wine pourer, drip stopper & wine thermometer) [worth £17.99] at no extra cost and now includes a free gift card with your personal message and tasting and storage notes.
