1993 Moët & Chandon "Cuvée Dom Pérignon Oenothèque" Brut Champagne

SKU #1039264 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Green-tinged gold. Deep, smoky, exotic bouquet of poached pear, yellow plum, nectarine, lees and cured meat. Lush and creamy, with intensely smoky orchard fruit flavors and a sweet/spicy cinnamon toast quality. Deep, chewy and expansive on the finish, where the cinnamon and toasty lees flavors echo with noteworthy persistence. Complex enough to enjoy now but has the depth and balance to repay aging. (JR)  (11/2007)

92 points Vinous

 Dom Pérignon’s 1993 Oenothèque was a very pretty, slender wine with attractive notes of smoke, yeast and roasted nuts. (AG)  (11/2007)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Seductive graphite, candied citrus and mineral aromas and flavors, with hints of hazelnut and coffee, mark this complex, soft Champagne. Supple, caressing the palate and ending with a ginger and hazelnut aftertaste. (BS)  (6/2007)

K&L Notes

Dom Perignon reserve! This Champagne comes from the wine library or "Oenotheque" of Moet & Chandon. Much like the Bollinger RD's, this Dom has been allowed to age on its lee's for an extra 5 years compared to the original release of the vintage. It has been given the time that it needs, and has blossomed into a full bodied, toasty, elegant Champagne. It is the perfect bottle for the most important gifts! -Gary Westby, K&L

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
