Dom Perignon, 2006

Champagne

"The wine’s opulence – contained and succulent, round at heart – reveals itself in the mouth". The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy. "The whole eventually melts into an exquisite bitterness tinged with the briny taste of the sea".

ON THE NOSE

The immediate impression is of the mildness of the pure, airy, bright bouquet. A floral, fruity pastel tone then unfolds and quickly darkens into candied fruit, ripe hay and toasted notes, along with hints of licorice.
THE 2006 HARVEST

The weather in 2006 was mixed, but warm and dry overall.

Dom Perignon, 1996

Rose

The 1996 Dom Perignon Rose has lost some of its freshness and also developed a more candied profile since I last tasted it about six months ago. Geoffroy describes 1996 as a challenging vintage, especially for the Pinot, which suffered somewhat from the heat and has sometimes shown blowsy characteristics. The 1996 remains a generous, layered version of this wine. The best bottles are drinking beautifully today and have the structure to continue to drink well for at least another decade. In general though, my preference has been to drink Dom Perignon Rose relatively early (within 15 years or so of the vintage) as my experiences with older wines has been decidedly mixed.

Dom Perignon, 1995

Oenotheque

This Champagne comes from the wine library or "Oenotheque" of Moet & Chandon. Much like the Bollinger RD's, this Dom has been allowed to age on its lee's for an extra 5 years compared to the original release of the vintage. It has been given the time that it needs, and has blossomed into a full bodied, toasty, elegant Champagne.

Belle Epoque Vintage Champagne

Pale yellow with gold hints; notes of caramel, leaves, lightly roasted nuts, apple skin, slight oxidation; on the palate still some effervescence bubbles faded rather quickly, pleasing notes of sour apple, burnt caramel, musty chalk; medium body, good lifted acidity with a slightly rich caramel apple note, long in the mouth. Really nice, excellent condition

Louis Roederer Cristal, 1993

Champagne

"Vibrant, elegant, spicy aromas of orange peel, mace, nutmeg and ground horseradish. Brisk, steely and firm, but expands inexorably to fill the mouth. Strong in extract but quite light on its feet. A sinewy Champagne, and strong for the vintage. Very long and very fine on the finish. " Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
"Fine example of the vintage, with clean fruit flavors, plenty of depth, great balance and a soothing array of fine bubbles." Wine Spectator

Taittinger, 1993

Comtes de Champagne Rose

The 1993 Comtes de Champagne (original release) comes across as a touch fat and lacking freshness. Truffles, autumn leaves and mushrooms are some of the tertiary nuances that emerge from this mature Champagne:

Dom Perignon, 1992

Rose Champagne in Gift Box

Moet & Chandon is one of Champagne's giants when it comes to the sheer number of bottles that emerge from its cellars each year. The house's top wine Dom Perignon is quite possibly the most iconic wine in Champagne and perhaps the world. Production numbers are always kept close to the vest but that notwithstanding it is impossible to ignore the exceptional quality that the best vintages offer.

Dom Perignon, 1985

Vintage Champagne

*** 94 - 96 Points - Wine Journal ***

Reviews: "Greeny gold hue. An aromatic, almost herbaceous nose with greengage and honeysuckle - very complex. Palate is rich and fresh with notes of grass, apple and honey. This is a big, flamboyant champagne. Very long although the 1990 has a bit more style in my humble opinion. Tasted May 2002." Neil Martin Wine Journal.

Gossett Champagne, 1985

Grand Millesime Champagne

From the excellent 1985 vintage this champagne has a quite deep coloured with an evolved savoury nose. The texture has begun to thin out a bit, and there’s high acidity but with interesting savoury, biscuitty flavours. Very good+ - Review on Wine Anorak

Perrier Jouet, 1983

La Belle Epoque ( In original Box as pictured)

This is a full, rich and generous champagne with a touch of brown sugar, some toast, crème brulee and truffle butter. It still has a vigorous bead and is creamy and round in the mouth, with resolved acidity and some nice tertiary savoury action. There are no hard edges and a kiss if citrus freshens the back end.

Taittinger, 1983

Vintage Champagne Da Silva Label

Amongst Champagne's luxury cuveés and super-premium labels, Taittinger's wines live on one extreme end of the style spectrum.
While many top Champagnes can be quite difficult to approach in their youth, with laser-like focus and delineation, even austerity, Taittinger instead tends to be immediately open and welcoming. These are beautiful, delicious Champagnes, with bubbles lazily winding their way up to the surface, inviting you to take another sip.

Dom Perignon, 1980

Champagne

Produced only in the finest vintages, Dom Perignon is Moet et Chandon's prestige cuvee Champagne. Usually a blend of half-and-half Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (give or take a few per cent here or there), it is rightly regarded as one of the very finest Champagnes, with the ability to age gracefully over many years. The wine is named after Pierre Perignon, the monk at the Abbey of Hautvillers who, legend has it, 'discovered Champagne' in the 17th Century and announced it was like "drinking stars".

Reviews: "Fresh and elegant, with characteristic doughy, yeasty flavors and a touch of honey and mocha.

"...The most amazing and unique wine i have ever had. upon opening the bottle had about an inch worth of ullage and the wine looked oxidized. all i can tell you is that this wine is comparable to the finest aged white burgundy you can imagine with the slightest hint of effervescence. creamy and rich with butterscotch, caramel, chocolate, raspberry, tobacco, i could go on forever..."

Dom Perignon, 1970

Champagne, 1.5cm inverted

Dom Perignon gets its name from the Benedictine Monk, who in 1668 became the cellar master at Benedictine abbey of Hautvillers, in Marne, Champagne. During his time at the abbey, the vineyards thrived, and he made it his ambition to create - in his own words "the best wine in the world". By adopting new techniques, he was a pioneer in wine making and is thought to be the first to blend different grape varieties to improve the quality of wine. Dom Perignon is now a hugely sought after, top quality champagne.

Tasting notes:
Apple notes shine through. A touch oxidized, but it needed time to open up.

Dom Perignon, 1969

Champagne

Dom Pérignon 1969 is a rare Champagne for those very special occasions.

The quality of Moët et Chandon’s Cuvée Dom Perignon is attributed to the fact that Moët only make it in truly exceptional vintages from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; which are picked from only the very best crus of the entire region.

Dom Pérignon is named after the famous 17th Century Benedictine Monk who actually did more for still wines in the region, contrary to the myth that he invented Champagne.
Just one bottle available.

“Quite simply the best champagne I have tasted. Poured from a magnum, it has a luscious amber/lemon hue with still a little mousse.

Dom Perignon, 1964

Champagne - Brut

"This wine combined the big nutty tones of age with young acidity and fresh attack. The has everything, where the butterscotch is separated from the fruit and nut aromas. This butterscotch taste remains all the way and makes up the entire, exceptionally long aftertaste. One of my three winners at the big Millennium Tasting."

Dom Perignon, 1962

Oenotheque Champagne

The 1962 vintage’s maturity has been considered advanced enough to be placed among the Oenothèque wines.

That year’s winter has been particularly long and early summer did not improve this critical situation. Indeed, a strong period of storms and hails occurred at the usual time of flowering. As a result, the blossoming started later than the other years. September, however, was surprisingly warm and mild, which has been beneficial to the ripening of the grapes and wine quality.

Dom Pérignon Oenothèque 1962 is truly appreciated by wine lovers who have a preference for the complex aromatic palettes.
