(06-2013) 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.

Acker Merrall and Condit (1-2013) A trio of Doms from the ‘60s were next, beginning with the 1966 Dom Perignon. Its nose was heavenly. It smelled like buttered sex with light toast, both in perfect harmony with its sunny, yellow fruit. The palate was excellent; yummy and long with more yellow fruits, although it felt a touch dry. It had a wheaty finish and dried out sooner than later, a function of the bottle more than the wine. Old Champagne is more volatile than any other category, it’s that any given Sunday thing.

(10-1995) A bit light and starts out slow, but it takes off on the long finish. Hints of grapefruit and a slightly herbal character, but the honey notes are attractive.-

Dom Perignon

When Pierre Pérignon took office as attorney to the Benedictine Abbey of Hautvillers in 1668, he moved the mission to create the "world's best wine". Such ambition revealed in this young monk thirty years ago, a visionary and extraordinary audacity. Exact contemporary of King Louis XIV, Dom Perignon revolutionized the history of wine as Louis XIV, revolutionized the art of living. Their meeting would take place through the wine's reputation for excellence in the "wine of the father Perignon" won Versailles and allowed him to be served at the king's table.

Over three centuries later, Dom Perignon House pursues the vision and work of one who is considered the spiritual father of champagne. Each vintage is a creation, each vintage reinvented an exception that is solely Cellar Master to declare, or not. According to Richard Geoffreoy, Cellar Manager Dom Perignon, the grapes are never the same from one year to another. If a crop does not meet the criteria of Dom Perignon, there will be no vintage this year. It is not a value-judgment, but an aesthetic vision. The absolute uniqueness of Dom Perignon was born of this commitment. Dom Perignon is the true point of tension and balance between style, timeless, and distinctive qualities of a year. The mouth feel is unique combination of lightness, flexibility and rich air, the first impression to the last flavor.
