Dom Perignon 1992 Oenotheque Rose 75 cl

The Plénitude concept has been years in development at Dom Pérignon and they have identified the natural course of aging that Vintage Champagne takes. Rather than improving steadily as is the case with many wines, it seems to take 3 defined stages in its life. The first release (P1) comes approximately 8 years after the vintage and is the style that most are familiar with and is currently the 2006 vintage. The second stage (P2) takes roughly 15 years and really takes a profound leap to a new quality level where it will plateau for many years in terms of improvement. Finally the third Plénitude (P3) will see the champagne ageing another 20-30 years until it peaks with both previously falling under the Oenothèque banner.

Dom Pérignon Rosé 1992 was originally released after 8 years on the lees and was very expressive. Dom Pérignon Rosé P2 1992 is softer and creamier than the first release and this combines to create an exceptional champagne that is bursting with flavours. After now around of 15 years on the lees in the confines of the its famous Cellars in Épernay, the purpose of which is perfectly summed up by the winemaker himself: “For the Second Plénitude, we’re looking for the peak of energy, intensity and vibrancy, showing the wine in high-definition,” Richard Geoffroy, Chef de Cave, Dom Pérignon.

The 1992 harvest experience a very long and extremely hot summer with isolated hail storms, however the grapes were superb in their levels of ripeness and had a high total acidity level. The harvest levels were similar to the 1990 vintage. There is a very good ageing potential with this champagne, it is sure to improve.

Description

To the eye, coppery pink with glints of coral.

On the nose,  citrus fruits combine with hints toasty notes, opening up to a palate of dark forest fruits with a long last finish.

In the mouth, the attack is open, airy and caressing. The wine’s intensity gradually makes itself felt and carries on, holding the penetrating sappy note.

Grape Varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
Dosage: 6.5 g/L

Lobster, crab, caviar, foie gras, strawberries

Chilled at 10°C – 12°C

The 1992 Dom Pérignon Œnothèque Rosé is quite lifted and silky in style, with lovely overall balance and tons of nuance. Delicate floral and spice notes add complexity to a soft, gracious Champagne that has now arrived at a plateau of maturity where it will remain for at least a few more years. The 1992 is striking today, although it does not appear to have the staying power of either the 1993 or 1990. Disgorged 2007.

95/100 (May 2015)

It’s always a special occasion when you get a chance to enjoy such a rare and exclusive Champagne as is the Oenotheque Rose Vintage. The 1992 is extremely fresh and vibrant considering its age, beautiful traces of Strawberry, blackberry, citrus, and scents of chocolate and brioche. While I believe that it’s at its peak for drinking right now I do see a few more years of fantastic drinking. With such a vinous and wine like Champagne this is ideal to enjoy with a slightly different pairing and on this special occasion the food pairing was cooked Foie Gras and fig confit followed by a Lobster Pappardelle Pasta. Exotic fruit salad proved a beautiful end to a stunning Champagne.
