Champagne Moutard, 2009

6 Cépages Vintage Champagne

Champagne Moutard Cuvée '6 Cépages' 2008 is a rare vintage champagne, made in very small quantities with 'forgotten' grape varieties Arbane, Petit Meslier and Pinot Blanc, which join the more usual Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay in this fascinating blend. The wine is a sumptuous mix of floral, citrus and complex nutty flavours.

The Moutard family has been making wine since 1642. Since then they were always keen on exploring the potential of different terroirs, maintaining traditions as well as experimenting with different grapes varieties. Francois Moutard's 21 hectares vineyard are in Buxeuil on the Cote de Bar.

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.

Champagne Drapper, 2002

Grand Sendree

The Grande Sendrée Cuvée takes its name from a parcel of land covered by cinders after the fire which ravaged Urville in 1838. A spelling error having slipped through in a new version of the land register, it is with an “s” that this cuvée is designated today. A reproduction of an 18th century bottle found in the Urville cellars is used and the Grande Sendrée undergoes remuage entirely by hand.

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.

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.

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.

Taittinger, 1983

Artists Collection, Vieira da Silva Edition- In original gift box as illustrated

The Taittinger Collection Series bottles are released only in great vintages, from a selection of the year's finest cuvées. The wines are made from Chardonnay mainly from the Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs, and Pinot Noir from Montagne de Reims and Vallée de la Marne vineyards. The fruit is pressed in the vineyards and the first pressing is transported to the winery for fermentation, followed by a second fermentation in the bottle. Aged for five or more years on the lees, the wine acquires complexity and the fine, pinpoint bubbles characteristic of its sparkle.

The Taittinger Collection Series was conceived in the late 1970s by Claude Taittinger.

Dom Perignon, 1982

Champagne

*** 96 Points Robert Parker ***

"Dark gold in color with a slow stream (I don't know if I would even characterize it as a stream) of tiny bubbles. Aromas of brioche, caramel, honey and flowers. Rich and round on the palate with caramel, rye bread and baked apple notes, but with very nice acidity to keep it elegantly balanced. Wonderful length -- quite a pleasure overall."

Dom Perignon, 1980

Rose Champagne - scuffed labels

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.

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.

Reviews..
“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, 1966

Champagne - Brut

"Definitely fully mature champagne. Amber colour with a rather low key nose initially which opened out to something attractive and lightly sherrified nose that really speaks to the jamon iberico we're served at this dinner at Taillevent organised by François Audouze, his 170th wine dinner. Very deep and rich yet dry. Real lift to this wine but it also has a deep, throat- warming finish. There's a note of cheddar on the nose. Very clean and revitalising. Rich and dense." Jancis Robinson

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." Richard Juhlin, April 2004
