1993 Dom Pérignon Oenothèque Rosé

Dom Pérignon’s 1993 Oenothèque Rosé is absolutely exquisite. Soaring in its aromatics and racy on the palate, the 1993 confirms all the promise it showed when I first tasted it. There is an exuberance, a raciness to the 1993 that is hard to describe with words. Remarkably deep for a 23 year-old Champagne, the 1993 will continue to drink well for another two decades or more. Today, it is in the sweet spot, with a stunning interplay of mature aromas and flavors backed up by the structure to go the distance. After a long, intense week of work, everything stops for a few minutes as we contemplate the beauty of 1993 Oenothèque Rosé. Disgorged 2011. 96/Drink 2016-2036.
