Yesterday my late father Harold would’ve turned 70. At a family supper in his memory, a bottle of Moët & Chandon Dom Pérignon 1992. Good colour – straw yellow with a green tinge. The nose was a bit muted but the palate was holding up remarkably well – some citrus and apple still left plus subtle yeasty character. A very fine and still lively mousse and bright but not hard acidity, the finish long and gently salty. A reminder of how seamless top Champagne is relative to most Methode Cap Classique.

Score: 92/100.
