The Story

DOM PÉRIGNON OENOTHÈQUE  / As the custodian of Dom Pérignon’s history and style, Geoffroy watches over a few samples of each vintage in his OEnothèque, the Chef de Cave’s wine cellar. In the OEnothèque, the wine continues to mature for years and even decades, and is reborn with each metamorphosis of time, for Dom Pérignon is unanimously recognized for its impressive aging potential. As Geoffroy puts it, “Dom Pérignon OEnothèque is the ultimate expression of a wine whose style defies time.”

Geoffroy’s commitment to the OEnothèque program, which began with the 1990 Vintage, involves ongoing personal research on each vintage. The effect of time on the bottled wine retains its share of mystery and surprise even for him.

Dom Pérignon keeps pushing one step further, sometimes rewriting the rules, to pave the path for renewed experiences. So does Œnothèque, glorifying the exclusive process of actively aging a wine on its lees to offer a magnified style through re-releases. Œnothèque prolongs the character of the original Vintage wine, coming ever closer to the ideal of Dom Pérignon. The patience of wine lovers is now rewarded with a deeper, more intimate discovery and perception of Dom Pérignon. The current Vintage is put in proper perspective by giving a glimpse of the aging potential. It would now be virtually impossible for me to imagine Dom Pérignon without its Œnothèque expression.

Vintage 1964

DOM PÉRIGNON
OENOTHÈQUE 1964

THE HARVEST
Grape picking began September 16th after a very fine, hot, dry summer.



TASTING NOTES

On the nose
Magnificently full, clean and well-balanced. Opens up to reveal raisiny flavors, along with notes of toast, vanilla and hazelnut.

On the palate
Intricate, generous but not overbearing. On the day of tasting, aromas of Arabica and musky accents of new leather and sandalwood were discerned. A tiny note of vanilla and a spicy hint of nutmeg give way to a precise, enduring quality of dried fruit underscored by just a touch of astringency.

Written Notes

As wonderful and complex as can be, but without impressing as much as the usual mint-chocolate-scented, rather uneven '64.
  • 95p
There was a 1964 Dom Perignon Oenotheque, which was big and full of straw and hay. Zippy and heavy, this was serious stuff and an older green label Oeno. As the Angriest of the Angry pointed out, it had ‘remarkable freshness due to its late disgorgement as well as the complexity of a 45 year-old Champagne’
