1993 Dom Perignon Oenotheque from Dom Perignon

Breaking from the land of principled elegance, the 1993 Dom Perignon Oenotheque from Dom Perignon manifests a graceful defiance to the common flavour profiles associated with Champagne.

 

A fine expression of a limited harvest

The 1993 vintage was a season of chicane in Champagne, a year characterized by suppressed yields due to capricious weather conditions. This acute limitation orchestrated a scarcity which has piqued the interests of savvy wine investors world-wide. The valley’s terroir responded to such austerity in subtle rebellion, crafting a sparkling narrative laden with intrigue and compelling depths.

In tasting this Dom, one begins to fathom why its rarity is revered. Dancing on the palate with refined effervescence, tones of orchard fruit, almond and subtle spices charm the senses. Concurrently, the finish intimates notes of pastry cream whose whispers linger tantalisingly in memory.

 

Drawing distinction

Amid such vibrant expressions, what truly distinguishes the 1993 Oenotheque from its counterparts is its spiritual transformation during maturation. Unlike conforming vintages, this unique soul dazzles in its dynamic evolution across the palate; distinctly embodying longevity and evolution that echoes the uniqueness of its vintage.

Apt it is then that this manifestation be termed the Oenotheque - derived from oinos meaning ‘wine’ and tithenai indicating ‘to establish’. This title beautifully aligns with its alluring capacity for refined age-worthiness -gathering momentum as each year passes; a precious asset for any discerning wine investor.

1993 Dom Perignon Oenotheque from Dom Perignon: A tangible testament to grace under pressure, reminding us that even within turbulent seasons, evocative beauty emerges.
