Moët & Chandon, Brut Cuvée Dom Pérignon Épernay 1996

dom-perignon-1996-1

Twenty years on.

Yellow-gold.  I dream about you through the day; then I toss and turn at night and this wine is just like that.  Intense, with claws of acidity and packing plenty of steel.  Colors run to green and silver and there’s a soundless euphoria at the end, as if we could ride on the backs of birds.  A great ’96.  Now – 2030+.
