Dom Perignon Champagne Brut Cuvee Oenotheque 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

The praline rapidly combines with citron and dried figs. Darker underlying iodine and peaty notes also emerge. There is an apparent paradox, with concentration and movement vying for ascendancy. The structure of the wine is tense and assertive. Its energy, almost tactile, is contained for a moment before vibrating and exploding. Its opulence then becomes superbly persistent, trenchant and persuasive.
