I've only had the '90 but its probably the second best bubbly I've ever had, right behind the 90 Krug. I picked up 2 3-packs +1 when it was released, halfway gone now but the last one I has was in October. Still amazing, more amazing actually, than the first two. My wife, who has a much better palate than I, was also amazed by it.

That said, I've never had the regular 90 so I have nothing to compare it to. For me however it has been a stunning wine and well worth the $$.

They are significantly better than Dom P, which I find to be a significantly overrated Champagne. I don't think they are better than several other similarly priced (and sometimes less expensive) Champagnes, however. (Billecart Grande Cuvee, Krug Vintage, PR Winston Churchill, Clos de Goisses, etc)

I can only speak to the '90 but a recent bottle was a Hall o' Famer for us. Hubby thought it was the best bottle of Champagne we've had. I thought it was worth the extra $$$ in the vintage Krug class.
