Dom Perignon Side By Side Gift 1 Vintage 1 Oenotheque 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

This limited edition is *a first in the history of wine*: two bottles of the same vintage of Dom Perignon, with two different levels of maturation. Never before has it been possible to discover and compare two moments in the life of of one remarkable wine side by side.Dom Perignon Vintage 1996 was aged for seven years in cellar. It was disgorged in 2003 when the wine had reached its opulence and had become a true Dom Perignon.The Dom Perignon Oenotheque 1996 was aged for 12 years in cellar until the vintage acquired its optimal intensity and complexity. This second life entitled the wine to be re-released in 2008 as Oenotheque.Only four thousand numbered "Side by Side" editions have been created worldwide for the pleasure of a very limited number of collectors. For the fortunate connoisseurs who purchase this unique item they will have *an unforgettable introduction to the parallel lives of a single wine*. *This great rarity is now very low in stock so all sales are subject to confirmation.*
