1969 Dom Pérignon Champagne P3 Dom Perignon, Champagne, Champagne, France
97 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (November 2017)
A deeper, richer expression of the vintage vis-à-vis the Œno comes through in the 1969 Dom Pérignon P3. There is a good bit of aromatic brightness and plenty of freshness as well, but the P3 is distinguished by its textural breath, volume and pure power. The richness of the fruit makes the bubbles barely perceptible in this exquisite Champagne.
I prefer the greater precision of the Œno, but both of the late releases are sublime.
