The Story

 At the end of the 17th Century, Dom Pierre Pérignon stated his ambition to create ‘the best wine in the world’.  On 29 September 1694, Dom Pierre Pérignon wrote that his mission was to create “the best wine in the world.” He dedicated himself to improving viticulture techniques, perfecting the art blending grapes from different crus, and introduced the gentle and fractional pressing to obtain white wine from black grapes.Ever since, the House of Dom Pérignon has perpetuated this visionary approach instilled by its founder, one that remains a hallmark of true luxury: the constant reinvention of the exceptional.

Under the creative leadership of cellar master Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon is reinvented with every vintage. The miraculous concept of assemblage – the delicate balance between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – and the commitment to Vintage are instrumental in the act of creation, revealing the wine's extra soul. Precise and tactile to the point of seamlessness, tense through rhythm and vibrancy, vigorous and fresh yet mature, intense and complex – such is the sensual style of Dom Pérignon: so inviting, yet so mysterious...

The core of the blend are the eight historical Grands Crus, Aÿ, Bouzy, Verzenay, Mailly, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil, plus the legendary Hautvillers Premier Cru. Dom Perignon also has the unique privilege of being able to select grapes from all 17 Grands Crus in Champagne. giving birth to Dom Perignon's highly intriguing contrast".

Vintage 1995

THE HARVEST
The year was notable for its exceptional summer : A fairly overcast spring meant that the vines flowered late but quickly. The summer compensated for the spring, with a heat wave arriving at the end of June. For two months, there was hardly any rain, just a few isolated clouds and above-normal temperatures that seat a 30 year record. The harvest began on September 18 for the Chardonnay and on September 25 for the Pinot noir grapes.

Written Notes

Here is a soft, charming, sensual, and classic Dom Pérignon. The wine carpets the palate with the softest silky texture you can desire. This supple, complex wine runs down your throat with the greatest ease, trailing a fresh aftertaste. The aromatic palette is the same as usual, with its exotic fruit and breakfast-y notes, as well as an unusually strong dash of vanilla that is a distinguishing feature of the vintage.

It had a milder nose by comparison but was still very nice. There was a delicate freshness on the bready side with mild citrus and a quiet calm and balance to the nose. The palate was very stony and a bit more unbalanced by comparison to the 1996 in regard to the bread flavors upfront and alcohol on the finish. The 1995 was more medium-bodied but solid, and it went very well with the smoked trout, which balanced it out on the palate tremendously. The 1995 was very smooth, more ready, approachable and rounder than the 1996. Justin remarked that the 1995 was .better balanced. It doesn.t have the stuffing of the 1996, but it.s more my style..

Nose: Austere. Nutty, toasty, but a hint of oxidation. Disappointing

 

Palate: Ok, but a little past its time. Still good. Fruit subdued. Very toasty, almost woody, without the fruit to hold up to it. Again, quite disappointing. Should be much better for what it is. Still, I wouldn't turn down a glass.

 

88 Points. Certainly not worth the high price tag (although perhaps a few years ago?)

 Christer Byklum / Leading Scandinavian wine blogger, Wine Writer (Norway)  tasted  Dom Pérignon 1995  ( Moët & Chandon )

"Lemon yellow, tiny bubbles, tight, lime, sharp (if subdued), flint, touch of cheese. Fresh acidity, ripe lemons, more focused than 96, something I like, elegant mousse, refreshing, lively, just a little bit short for higher marks. 94-95"

 Ray Thomsen, Wine Writer (Switzerland)  tasted  Dom Pérignon 1995  ( Moët & Chandon )

"The 1995 Dom Pérignon, another great vintage, is broader and even more powerful than the 1996 DP at this moment which is rather closed. It is very rich in flavor, very Pinot Noir, and undoubtedly will last for many decades. Right now it might be better than the 1996 for most people. "

 Björnstierne Antonson / sommelier, Pro (Sweden)  tasted  Dom Pérignon 1995  ( Moët & Chandon )

"TASTINGNOTE Även Moët & Chandon har gett sig in i kategorin Champagne de Luxe. Man har tillverkat endast ett fåtal Dom Pérignon White Gold i en trelitersflaska (Jéroboam) insvept i vitguldöverdrag från juvelerarhuset Chaumet. Första flaskan såldes till en restaurant i London för den finns på vinlistan för €7 500. Här är en mjuk, älskvärd, sensuell och samtidigt klassisk Dom Pérignon. Vinet tapetserar gommen med den mjukaste sidentapet man kan tänka sig. Det lena och komplexa vinet rinner ned i halsen med den största lätthet och lämnar samtidigt en frisk eftersmak efter sig. Den aromatiska färgkartan är den gamla vanliga med den exotiska frukten, de frukostartade tonerna med ett ovanligt starkt stänk av vanilj som är ett av årgångens kännetecken.
