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.

THE HARVEST
Summer was hot. Harvesting took place early, starting on 14 September, and the resulting wines were produced from healthy grapes.



TASTING NOTES

On the nose
Initial nose of light aniseed and fresh almonds rapidly give way to mango and dried figs, with toasty aromas completing the bouquet.

On the palate
The palate has a firm structure, with a backbone of initial aromas leading to airy, delicate flavours. A tender, silky texture gradually evolved into persistent, fresh notes of candied grapefruit and pepper

Written Notes

This wine still has a very youthful, mineral nose. A wide taste yet clean and stylish in its opening phase. It has a firm, fresh structure but should still be stored in the cellar for at least another 5 years.
