Dom Perignon, Œnothèque 1998
The 1998 Dom Perignon P2 offers up layers of pastry, lemon, smoke and toastiness. At first deceptively understated, the wine turns positively explosive and layered on the palate, showing remarkable tension, elegance and power, all wrapped around a seriously intense frame. The balance between fruit and acidity is awesome. This is a marvelous Œnothèque. The Œnothèque is the same juice as the regular Dom Perignon, except the Œnothèque is aged on the cork while the regular Dom Perignon is aged in crown-sealed bottles. Once disgorged, the Œnothèque gets a slightly lower dosage than is typical for the original release Dom Perignon. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026. 97 Points.
