Dom Pérignon Oenothèque Rosé 1990

Cuvee: Rosé
Vintage: 1990
1990 saw a by spring frosts in April so making blossoming difficult in the cold and rainy conditions. Blossom drop and uneven grape development were only compensated by the large number of bunches and the wide branches. After a heat wave summer which set in and remains until the generous downpours, the musts boasted an exceptional composition and homogenous quality throughout the Champagne region. The result is a very complex wine with flavours going from jam, from petals to dried roses. There are hints of spices, leather and light tobacco. The exact same blend as 1990 Dom Pérignon Rosé, 42% Pinot Noir, 58% Chardonnay, the Œnothèque has spent ten more years on its lees (disgorgement 2007). It is sold only in certain high-end wines and champagnes stores. The bottle comes presented in a Dom Pérignon Œnothèque Rosé branded box.

The Blend
42% Pinot Noir, 58% Chardonnay

Tasting Notes Eye: Copper pink in colour with coral reflections

Nose: The bouquet is complex and warm, with an exotic combination of papaya, crystallised orange, curry leaves and sweet spices. It is rounded off by marine and roasted notes

Palate: This wine displays enormous subtlety, full, affectionate, solid and rounded all at once. Carnal, tactile and in full bloom, the wine’s expression is languorous and holds the note magnificently

Food Pairing Perfect with a risotto with champagne and radicchio recipe, with macaroni with cheese or with a roasted onion tart with may tag blue cheese
