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...

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.
