Tasting Notes:

95 points Wine Enthusiast

This is a wine that thrives on tension between its structure, opulence, elegance and poise. It is certainly ripe and opulent, but it is so well balanced and layered with acidity, and flavors of almonds, orange peel and kiwi fruits. It will certainly age.

94 points Wine & Spirits

This young wine has a potent mousse and equally brisk acidity. Its flavors are bright white, from chalk to fresh cream; they take some time to meld with the vibrant structure, coming together with air, lithe and refined. Richness develops in scents of brioche, mouthwatering with a fat Belon oyster, built to age.

92 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 1998 Dom Perignon comes across as somewhat two–dimensional and lacking the sheer cut of the 2000. There is plenty of ripeness in the fruit, but not quite the definition and verve of the finest vintages. This looks to be a relatively early-drinking Dom Perignon. Geoffroy adds that the estate may have waited a bit too long to pick certain parcels in 1998.
