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.

In 2008, two sales held by Acker Merrall & Condit also left their mark on the history of Dom Pérignon, with three magnums of Dom Pérignon OEnothèque (1966, 1973 and 1976) selling for US $93,260 in Hong Kong, and a lot of two bottles of the legendary Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 1959 selling for US $84,700 in New York.

Written Notes

Relatively rich nose with slightly toasted elements. Fruity but without its restrained elegance. An aroma of mushroom cream and bread-like taste, with well-rounded edges. Fine apricot opulence in the middle taste gorgeously backed up by young gooseberry tones as well as the honey and chocolate of maturity. What a great ’73 perfect to drink now! I’m impressed with the freshness! Didn’t expect this!’

which is Dom Perignon.s version of an .RD. or .Collection. bottling, ie a late release directly from Dom. I had to buy something, although little did I know I already had, but we won.t get into that right now (Andy I think I need your help on this one)! I was in the mood for a .refresher,. and did those 1973s ever qualify and then some. It was one of the greatest Champagne experiences of my life. I don.t know if it was just that point in time and space where bottles undress themselves right in front of your very own lips and show incredibly due to circumstance and the theory of relativity, wine-wise of course. This champagne was incredible, so delicious and incredibly balanced, racy, bready, nutty&it had it all

One of the highlights of the evening, the 1973 Dom Pérignon Œnothèque (Disgorged 2010) is vivid and finely sculpted. There is plenty of nuance, depth and freshness in the glass, but it is the wine’s staying power and overall persistence that stand out most, especially as the evening wears on. In this flight, the 1973 Œno is a Champagne of total finesse. It is another stellar Œnothèque and the best wine in the flight of 1973s.

The 1973, recently released in the library Oenotheque program, was the first Dom Pérignon of the tasting to be perfectly ready to drink. It is spicy, mushroomy, toasty, quite rich, and totally delicious. I find it rather amazing that this 33-year-old Champagne from a good but not great vintage has aged so well. DP's Richard Geoffroy pointed out that weather conditions in 1973 were exactly the same as 1988, which means that the '88 should have at least 15 more years in its future.
