Complex and layered with scents of corn silk, white mushrooms and pale red fruit, this is a study in contrasts: grand and austere, honeyed and dry.

Complex and layered with scents of corn silk, white mushrooms and pale red fruit, this is a study in contrasts: grand and austere, honeyed and dry. It’s not one thing but all things Champagne, high in freshness, ethereal in its mineral refinement. Delicious on its own or with any fresh shellfish.

A return to regular form after the wild 2003 edition, this is business as usual in terms of the composed and complex swagger that is a hallmark of Dom. Good deep autolysis here, toasty yeasty characters wrap around a wealth of grapefruit and pithy lemon citrus notes; the chardonnay rings clear as a bell at around half of the blend. The palate has assertive, driving power and fully formed deep-seated phenolic presence with a chord of acidity steering it through a long, fresh and gently nutty finish. Classic Dom is back! Best drunk around 2019. - NS

Lily-of-the-valley perfume and scents of lightly toasted brioche and almond rise from the glass of Moet’s 2004 Brut Dom Perignon, along with hints of the apricot, pear and grapefruit that then inform a luscious and creamy yet strikingly delicate as well as consummately refreshing palate. Sweet-saline savor of scallop – also already intimated in the nose – lends compulsive saliva-inducement to a ravishingly rarified and persistent finish, joined by alkaline, nutty, liquid-floral, and nori seaweed notes for a performance of head-scratching subtlety and intrigue. (In case my description hasn’t already made clear, we have here inter alia a fantastic sushi wine.) This will be worth following for at least the next 6-8 years, in the course of demonstrating that iconic status as a luxury brand, and elevated (albeit secret) production numbers by no means preclude a wine of understated as well as profound beauty. - David Schildknecht

A graceful Champagne, with minerally drive. Firm acidity and a rich vein of smoky mineral meshes with the plush texture, offering finely woven flavors of mirabelle jam, toasted brioche, crunchy pear, honey and smoked almond. Delivers a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2029. From France. — A.N.

53% Pinot Noir, 47% Chardonnay. Delicious hint of struck-match reduction with firm citrus behind that. Similar on the palate, with strong echoes of white burgundy even though the bead is fine and noticeable. Fine notes of... 53% Pinot Noir, 47% Chardonnay. Delicious hint of struck-match reduction with firm citrus behind that. Similar on the palate, with strong echoes of white burgundy even though the bead is fine and noticeable. Fine notes of orange emerge. Terrific harmony of power and elegance, flavour and finesse. 18.5/20 (JH)

High-pitched, mineral-accented aromas of pear, Meyer lemon, quince and jasmine, with smoke and toasted grain qualities adding bass notes. Spicy, penetrating and pure, boasting impressive vivacity to its fresh orchard and citrus fruit flavors. Gains weight and breadth with air while maintaining vivacity, picking up a gingery nuance that carries through a long, smoky finish. I'd bet on this taut, youthful Champagne rewarding many more years of patience.
