I had always heard that as far as Dom Perignon goes, 1961 and 1921 were supposedly the most legendary Champagnes.

My wife and I shared the 1999 on a recent vacation. It was exceptionally lovely. It was earthy and warm but also lush with tropical fruits like pineapple and coconut. I remember also a distinct exotic spiciness, like anise and tobacco, etc.

Well what about that crazy ‘Bol Sein’ with the uh, female part? Ha! I understand the reflection on history, but come on, does it really need Claudia Schiffer’s… you know.

Just in 2010 I believe was when a first rose Oenotheque came out. The ’90, I want to say.

Wow, the second release.. The wines themselves are already rarified enough, as they only come out in decent vintages anyway –those wines are aged eight years before release.

Ah, naturally! Everyone remembers the 1961 from Dianna and Charles’s wedding. Or actually, their wedding breakfast; and appropriately,the wine of her birth year!

I thought the 1961 was supposed to be the best Dom Perignon ever made? I remember reading in December in Decanter about it being named as one of their Wine Legends.

There are several Oenotheques that I know of. Evidently, the 96, 95,93,90 were all fabulous from the nineties. Of course there is the 62 Oenotheque, too. D.P. got a lot of press for the 93 Oenotheque release when Karl Lagerfeld and that model Claudia Schiffer did the party.

The Oenotheques are really pretty cool. The cellar master may choose to re-release a previous vintage wine..That is, the original wine is kept, aged until he (the cellar master) believes another great point in its maturity is reached. The wine is bottled and re-released with the Oenotheque designation. It may even happen a third time.

I’ve seen this “Oenotheque” variety of Dom P’s wines on pricey wine lists a couple times. What is the difference between that and the already pricey Dom Perignon?
