Dom Perignon 1993 Oenotheque 75 cl

The 1993 vintage is characterised by its precocity. Despite very average temperatures, the summer was remarkable both for its amount of sunshine and the drought which lasted until the harvest began

Dom Pérignon vintages are released after 7 years of aging. A small portion of each vintage is kept on the lees even longer, to continue the evolution and magnify its natural qualities

Only one person – the Dom Pérignon cellar master – can decide if and when to re-release a vintage – granting it the “Œnothèque” (Wine Library) label. The “Œnothèque” label indicates that the vintage has reached either its second peak in maturity, with optimized intensity (15 to 20 years after harvest), or its third peak, with optimized complexity (after 30 years on the lees).

Description

On the nose,  the first hints of dried herbs rapidly give way to candied grapefruit and cinnamon. This is rounded off with notes of biscuit and raisin.

In the mouth, the sensations follow one after another closely, with rhythm, precision and intensity.

Finish, the initial density evolves into a creamy amplitude. Its finesse draws out and takes off on a sappy note.

55% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir

Dosage: 5.5 g/L

Lobster, crab, caviar, foie gras, strawberries

Chilled at 10°C – 12°C

Green-tinged gold. Deep, smoky, exotic bouquet of poached pear, yellow plum, nectarine, lees and cured meat. Lush and creamy, with intensely smoky orchard fruit flavors and a sweet/spicy cinnamon toast quality. Deep, chewy and expansive on the finish, where the cinnamon and toasty lees flavors echo with noteworthy persistence. Complex enough to enjoy now but has the depth and balance to repay aging.

93/100 (November 2007)

Much like the Rose Oenotheque this Blanc version is also still quite young and vibrant making it ideal to drink now or enjoy in the next 5/10 years. Wonderful work by the Dom Perignon team and Richard Geoffroy. Beautifully smooth and intense taste of spice and cinnamon with a further toasty and dried nuts smell. Perfect to match with Tuna Sashimi and Tempura Maki prawns. For dessert Dark Chocolate Mousse was chosen.
