Dom Pérignon Champagne 1985, 75cl with Dom Pérignon Box
The 1985 Dom Pérignon is still singing and is just one of those beauties with its elegant and highly complex nose that displays mature aromas of yeast, toast, baked apples, citrus, spice and soft floral nuances. The delicious and equally complex middle weight flavours are still supported by a firm but balanced mousse where the mouth feel is quite fine, before culminating in a long, toasty and regal finale. This has arrived at its peak and should probably be drunk up over the next decade or so. That said, anyone lucky enough to have this vintage is in for a real treat!
