Dom Perignon 1971

Fine, petite bubbles.

Colour: rich, butterscotch gold

Nose: clotted cream & lime sorbet with toast & chai tea. Soft mushroom notes as well.

Palate: rich, elegant & slightly austere, this hides some of the fruit. Very dry & long with nice floral edges. Superb with wild smoked salmon. Very much my sort of Champagne - refined, elegant & slightly herby with texture & class. A delight.
