This was more "bubbly" than the 85 Dom Perignon served with it although in the end, the Dom was the better still wine. That said, this was a great showing for this wine at age 38. Deeper golden in color with a fair amount of smaller bubbles. The nose is nice with ginger, caramel, and slight apple cider notes. Fuller in body. On the palate, this is still robust with ginger, slight red apples and just a bit of toast. Long finish. Certainly past prime but with a lot to offer. Nice on its own, better with a bit of food. Very enjoyable.
