Dom Pérignon P2 Rosé 1995
Vibrant gold colour with russet twinkles. Everything here speaks of a warm summer, gaining perfectly ripe grapes (especially the Chardonnay). Scents of white flowers and citrus. The mousse in the mouth suggests less pressure than usual, making it taste more like a great white wine than a Champagne. Superb quality of fruit and potential vinosity, with quite a lot in reserve for another decade +. Not for everyone, but for those who like white Burgundy, this is an alternative jewel for roast turbot with girolles, or milk-fed veal.
