It is amazing how much wine Moet can make and be so amazingly consistent.  Of course, Dom Perignon, is at the top of their heap.  Light gold with slight silver in color.  A steady stream of tiny bubbles form a nice mousse.  The nose is nice with slight toast and a sort of lemon/tangerine quality that is really nice.  Very clean.  On the palate, that lemon/tangerine quality continues with a nice dose of carbonation.  Incredibly smooth and easy yet with depth and also precision.  Long finish.  Probably not the greatest ever vintage of DP but still excellent.  Drinking quite well at the moment.  Wonderful wine.  Of course very food friendly and a great way to kick off the night.
