Lot #556. Moët & Chandon Dom Pérignon Brut 1969

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Champagne.
Score: 97 AG.
"A bevy of Dom Pérignons followed. The more I taste DP the more I am convinced that the most consistently reliable bottlings are impeccably well-stored original releases, rather than the far pricier Œnothèque series. A flight of 1969s was off the charts. The original release was surprisingly ripe and explosive, with phenomenal length and head-spinning balance. The Rosé was quite a bit more subtle and almost wine-like in its dried roses, slightly faded fruit and delicate finish. I loved it. The Œnothèque showed great depth, detail and all-around polish. This is one of the very finest vintages for Dom Pérignon, and all three bottles were on fire." Vinous, Jul 2010
Notes: Very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $550
