Dom Pérignon Vintage Champagne 1973, 75cl

£497.00

A wine characterised by notes of preserves, then giving way to a sense of preserved plums on the nose. Very powerful on the palate, with an animal and vanilla character and a marked roasted coffee and slightly spicy finish.   •   
The 1973 Harvest: Very dry conditions in August and early September did not keep the grapes from filling out normally. The harvest began on September 28th.   •  
Possibly the world’s most recognized and iconic Champagne, Dom Pérignon is always a vintage-dated wine comprised of the classic varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Elegant and graceful with excellent aging potential, it is produced only in those harvest years that the Chef de Cave declares to be of exceptional quality.
Dom. Pierre Pérignon, revered as the spiritual “Father of Champagne”, was a 17th century Benedictine Monk and cellar master at Benedictine Abbey of Hautvillers. He had a singular mission: to create the best wine in the world. To that mission, he dedicated 47 years of his life to invent and perfect the techniques to create a wine whose reputation knows no equal. His life-long work acquired a reputation for excellence which spread rapidly throughout the region, including the favour of the Royal Court during the reign of King Louis XIV.
Today, Richard Geoffroy, Chef de Cave and Creator of Dom Pérignon Vintages, perpetuates the spirit of Dom. Pierre Pérignon.
