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.
Dosage: 6.5 g/L
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.

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.
