Tasting Notes

WE99

A magnificent Champagne, one that is light, delicate, yet packed with character. It is beautifully balanced, with a bone-dry character, just softened by the toastiness that is developing. Expect this to age for many years.

WA97

The 1996 Dom Perignon Oenotheque offers up layers of pastry, lemon, smoke and toastiness. At first deceptively understated, the wine turns positively explosive and layered on the palate, showing remarkable tension, elegance and power, all wrapped around a seriously intense frame. The balance between fruit and acidity is awesome. This is a marvelous DP Oeno. The Oeno is the same juice as the regular Dom Perignon, except the Oeno is aged on the cork while the regular DP is aged in crown-sealed bottles. Once disgorged, the Oenos gets a slightly lower dosage than is typical for the original release DP. This bottle was disgorged in 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026.

The Winery

Dom Pérignon

"If Dom Pérignon is the Porsche 911 Carrera of the wine world, then DP Rosé is the 911 Turbo"
-Jay McInerney, The Wall Street Journal

Dom Perignon, a Benedictine monk, was an innovative cellar master and winemaker in the seventeenth-century, whose unique techniques advanced the production and quality of Champagne. His obsession with consistency, precision and discipline helped him master the stages of production.

Perignon and his colleagues laid out essential foundations for the ‘champenoise’ method of critical varietals to create a second fermentation in the bottle that adds the distinct 'bubbliness' to Champagne. Now a brand of Champagne house Moët & Chandon, Dom Perignon continues to make vintage-only wines priding themselves by releasing Champagne in only optimal years.
