(2019) Only my second encounter with this wine since its initial release.  So not toasty!  The nose delivers an intense blast of banana oil (possibly a consequence of the combined effects of drought and reduced yields). The attack is somewhat gentle, the aromas building through mid-palate.  The fruit is super dense, coating the palate with its viscosity.  Chewy, powerful, rather potent, an unusually early drinker for a Dom Pérignon release. A strong similarity to the blanc version here, and again, I’d probably wait for the P2 or P3 versions of this wine as extended lees aging should help manage the excesses of the vintage.  Drink from 2019 until 2023.
