Background:
-----------------

Dom Perignon was the 17th century Benedictine monk who has gone down in history as the person who invented Champagne. His name was originally registered by Eugene Mercier. He sold the brand name to Moet & Chandon, which uses it as its prestige champagne


Tasting!
----------

I have tried a good few (read: too many!) Champagnes in the last few years and recently had a bottle of the good stuff, a 1998 Dommy.

My mother in law decided to get a few for her 50th b'day so like all good wine connoisseurs we decided to pit our taste buds aginst it.

First the bottle. A touch of class resides in the label with little (read none) information given to the grapes used or other. However the label does stand out compared to others with its shield like style.

(Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are used in roughly equal proportions by the way)

Pouring out, a soft yellow wine appeared, with, of course, the finest bubbles one could imagine.

Tasting revealed the reason why this champagne is valued way above others, with a delightfully fresh and crisp taste, bubbles tickling the tongue (although not too much, no overpowering allowed!)


Verdict:
---------

A most delightful champagne that is a cut above all, although prbably not worth the extra cost over a good bollinger

More on the taste would be helpful. How much is is, where can you get etc would be useful on the review too. :-)

I have had a glass once.

The start of your review is coped (http://www.grandwinecellar.com/detail.aspx?ID=4015), and the rest doesn't tell you very much at all.
