1985 Dom Perignon Oenotheque Brut Champagne
The Oenothèque series is from the wine library of Moët & Chandon, Dom Perignon's mother company, in which they age the old vintages on their own yeasts, waiting for the day that they will be disgorged and released. This wine is from the great '85 vintage, and it has evolved into a marvelous yeasty, rich Dom but with the wonderful fresh character of a recent disgorgement.
Medium lemon-straw colour. Praline and toasted hazelnut aromas dominate the nose with nuances of lemon curd and butterscotch. The palate is very rich with decadently silken texture and a high level of refreshing acidity. Predominately yeasty, brioche flavours are supplemented by a subtle earthy/savoury character and some minerality. Long, mineral coated praline finish. -Robert Parker, tasted in 2009
