Vintage 1949

Tasting notes

"The 49 is for me one of the top 5 Dom Pérignons ever made, and it is also the one, when had from the best bottles, that has the greatest pitch. Best bottles of this can rival the 61 because of its incredible pitch. Truly a great wine and borderline 6 stars." Robert Rosania, April 2008 (Catalogue Vente aux Enchères de la Cave de Robert Rosania, New York, 25 April 2008)
