DIVINE INSPIRATION

It was at the abbey of Hautvillers, during the 17th century, that Dom Pierre Pérignon devoted his life to perfecting champagne and spreading its renown. Three centuries later, the same quest for perfection continues through the wine that bears his name. It guides the Chef de cave in giving life to the rare vintages he selects – in the creative process that perpetuates the Dom Pérignon style while ensuring the faithful expression of a particular year.


THE AGES OF AMPLITUDE

Seven years… The time it takes before a vintage undergoes its first tasting. However, the wine continues to mature over the subsequent years and decades.

Although each vintage follows its on curve as it matures on lees there are three plateaux when each of them express their very best. Richard Geoffroy, the Chef de cave, calls those moments Plenitudes. Each of the Dom Pérignon vintages passes through the same stages at different moments.

The first plenitude is reached after 6 to 7 years in the cellars. That is how long it takes for a wine to become worthy of the Dom Pérignon name, to achieve its own unique richness, complexity and sensations on the palate – always associating the character of the vintage with the Dom Pérignon style.

The wine enters the Œnothèque when the second plenitude occurs. Like a fascinating journey into the Dom Pérignon heritage, the Œnothèque offers an insight into the diversity and complexity of these wines, and into the mystery of their creation.

This second peak, reached after 12 to 20 years of maturation on lees in the cellars, is placed under the sign of a classic aromatic intensity. Even after all this time, the wine still tastes vibrant, crisp and amazingly fresh.

After 25 years or more, a third peak is reached, the summit of complexity. The combination of effervescence, substance and aroma is perfect. Its complexity becomes highly intriguing and sensual, as one moves away from the classical style to discover unusual sensations, often closer to those of a perfume. The intriguing, sensual aromatic progression takes on a new dimension to offer an incredibly enriching experience: the ultimate expression of the Dom Pérignon style.


THE CHEF DE CAVE’S COMMITMENT

Guardian of the style and memory of Dom Pérignon, the Chef de cave Richard Geoffroy preserves a few examples from each of the vintages in the Œnothèque. The life and maturation on lees of the wine continue over the years and decades.

The Chef de cave commits himself to discerning the vintages that have reached the full expression of their first, second or third plenitude. Each vintage exhibits new tasting characteristics specific to the three stages of amplitude of Dom Pérignon.
The numbers themselves evoke certain magic: 1959, 1962, 1973, 1980, and 1988.
Generations of wines and decades of memories…

To ensure the consistency and great quality of Dom Pérignon Œnothèque, all the bottles of a same vintage are disgorged at the same time.
Each one of the bottles that enters Dom Pérignon Œnothèque is individually tasted by an oenologist to guarantee its great quality.


TASTING NOTES

After years spent in darkness and silence, the wine finally gets to meet its taster.

Various emotions and sensations are experienced on the palate based around the balance between the Pinot noir and Chardonnay.

The first sensation is full and vibrant. The Chardonnay ensures a lively initial encounter, while the Pinot Noir adds to the length.

Nevertheless, Dom Pérignon refuses to allow either to totally dominate, instead taking advantage of the complexity of a combination in which the parts unite and complement each other in order to sublimate the wine as a whole.

The depth and scope of the tasting give rise to an impression of unity, of completion and of the perfect union of the soul, the senses and the wine.


DOM PÉRIGNON

FIRST PLENITUDE
Dom Pérignon Vintage 1995
Appearance: Pale yellow with gold highlights.
Nose: The brioche and honey tones quickly blend with fresh almond and apricot embellished by hints of smokiness.
Taste: After the upfront intensity and roundness, there is a gradual tension which becomes persistent, vibrant, pure, mineral and fruity.


DOM PÉRIGNON ŒNOTHÈQUE

SECOND PLENITUDE
Dom Pérignon Œnothèque Vintage 1988
Appearance: Straw yellow with golden highlights.
Nose: As the wine breathes it reveals its strength. The first burst of brioche and ripe wheat evolves into a complex bouquet that is sombre and shadowed, mineral, smoky with a hint of roasting coffee.
Palate: The attack is sharp and pronounced, the prelude to an unusual breadth. The full tale is revealed, unfolds and glides across the palate as if powered by the incisive finish that continues to characterise this vintage.

Dom Pérignon Œnothèque Vintage 1980
Appearance: A straw yellow hue
Nose: Some hints of toasted brioche, a clear presence of candied citrus fruit with slightly mentholated accents, all giving way to more prominent notes of autumn fruit.
Taste: The style is clear and precise. The lively and well-structured opening progressively reveals the fleshy ampleness of the wine. The freshness of citrus fruit lingers in the long finish.


DOM PÉRIGNON ŒNOTHÈQUE

THIRD PLENITUDE
Dom Pérignon Œnothèque Vintage 1973
Appearance: Golden yellow.
Nose: Aromas of dried leaves with a touch of toast, brioche and hints of ripe plum.
Taste: Combines strength and intensity in a highly original balance. Its delicacy is accentuated by a fine vibrant and well-structured liveliness. The taste dances on the palate and finishes with a slightly lemony finale.

Dom Pérignon Œnothèque Vintage 1962
Appearance: A slightly golden hue.
Nose: reveals itself in a series of gradual statements. The first notes are woody, smoky, followed by hints of cedar or sandalwood, then leading into marmalade before moving on into suggestions of spicy hawthorn, seeming younger and more flowery.
Taste: Beyond its maturity, there remains a certain austerity. The initial richness becomes freshness: the length is confirmed, never less than fruity, straightforward, refined and keen.

Dom Pérignon Œnothèque Vintage 1959
Appearance: Amber hue.
Nose: A high degree of complexity combining notes of oriental tobacco, honey, liquorice and fig in addition to coffee and chocolate.
Taste: The ripeness of the grapes radiates in a lighthearted opulence. The first impression of warmth, ampleness and relative sweetness introduces a powerful structure. Round and wholesome on the palate, exceptionally long with plenty of body and fruitiness. A fresh finish, which is truly astonishing for the vintage.
