Lot #126. Moët & Chandon Dom Pérignon Œenothèque Brut 1996

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: France, Champagne.
Score: 97 WA.
"The 1996 Dom Pérignon Œnothèque offers up layers of pastry, lemon, smoke and toastiness. At first deceptively understated, the wine turns positively explosive and layered on the palate, showing remarkable tension, elegance and power, all wrapped around a seriously intense frame. The balance between fruit and acidity is awesome. This is a marvelous DP Œno. The Œno is the same juice as the regular Dom Pérignon, except the Œno is aged on the cork while the regular DP is aged in crown-sealed bottles. Once disgorged, the Œnos gets a slightly lower dosage than is typical for the original release DP. This bottle was disgorged in 2008." Wine Advocate #192, Dec 2010
Notes: OC (2).
Lot Location: Orange County
