DOM PERIGNON OENOTHEQUE
Sparkling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
One secret of the Dom Perignon style is its subtle and intriguing balance of youth and maturity. This balance alllows the wine to age gracefully for an unlimited time.
This features floral, candied citrus, pencil shaving and hazelnut aromas and flavors. It's fresh and focused, with a firm structure offset by a mouthfilling richness and a lacy texture. Not a blockbuster, but seamless and seductive in its approach. Drink now through 2010. –BS
The 1995 Dom Perignon OEenotheque is the second release of this wine, and was disgorged in 2005.

The finish goes on and on. This mind-bending, kaleidoscopic Champagne possesses all of the qualities of profoundness, most importantly the ability to develop beautifully in the glass and the potential to acquire even more depth in bottle over the coming years. 1995 was a hot vintage, but this wine remains remarkably fresh. Simply put, the 1995 OEenotheque is a stunner. Anticipated maturity:
