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".

Written Notes

A magnum of 1971 Dom Perignon Rose continued our palate cleanse with its ‘strawberry sundae with caramel and apples,’ per Hollywood Jef. It had a curds n’ whey palate and was super zippy, but a bit sharp as well. I fluctuated between 95 and 96 points, but the old Roses always get a little dirty for me, keeping it at (95M).

What can one say? Certain vintages of this precious commodity are simply fantastic. The color has the same deep red appearance. The mousse bubbles up in a sensational way. The entire wine exudes seriousness and sumptuous vinosity. This has everything required of a really big red Burgundy. The spice, the coffee aromas, the smokiness, and the massive vegetal tones in the fruit call to mind red beets the aftertaste is reminiscent of the finest bitter chocolate. All of this is an unusually clear expression of first-class Pinot Noir.

"The mag of Krug went rather quickly, so we popped an impromptu magnum of 1971 Dom Perignon Rose. Mr. Rosania always likes to travel with a few extra bottles just in case lol. The ’71 was in a great spot right now, round and rich with tasty strawberry fruit. It had good earth flavors and didn’t get dirty like some old Dom Roses can. It popped without being overly acidic, and it seemed to be entering that plateau of maturity where it will stay for a long time. "
