Product Description

'Make the best wine in the world...' - Dom Pierre Perignon, 1668

Three centuries later, Dom Perignon OEnotheque is the supreme homage to this original ambition. To ensure its excellence each bottle is tasted and approved by a Dom Perignon oenologist; the final step before leaving the Dom Perignon cellars.

Background: It was at the Abbey of Hautvillers, during the 17th century, that Dom Pérignon devoted his life to perfecting champagne and spreading its renown. Three centuries later, the same quest continues through the wine that bears his name.

The Chef de Cave selects vintages that perpetuate the Dom Pérignon style while ensuring the faithful expression of a particular year. Although each vintage follows its own curve as it matures on less, there are three peaks, or "plenitudes", when vintages express their very best.

When the first plenitude is reached after 6 to 7 years, the Dom Pérignon style is well established. When it reaches its second plenitude, the wine enters the OEnotheque.

Like a fascinating journey into the Dom Pérignon heritage, the OEnotheque offers an insight into the diversity, intensity and complexity of these wines, and into the mystery of their creation.

The Chef de Cave has selected five vintages that exemplify these different plenitudes. The number of bottles is extremely limited and their rarity is a further promise of an unforgettable experience.

Dom Pérignon OEnotheque is the ultimate expression of a wine whose style defies time.
