Winemaker's Notes

A luminous, bronze-like robe, covered in iridescent reflections and revealing an exuberant effervescence. The nose offers a generous impression of fresh pastry and coconut followed by fern and licorice. The brilliant demonstration of this wine's sophistication arrives with hints of blond tobacco, dried fruits adn ginger. The palate reveals sensations of butter, acacia honey and white tea; these are followed by a spicy combination of henna, incense and sandalwood.

Pair with chicken poached in buttermilk with baby carrots, scallops with chanterelles and bouillabaisse.

93 Points

"An opulent, energetic bubbly, this has a concentrated essence of vanilla, honey, apricot and citrus notes, with a long finish. The firm structure offsets its richness. A compelling 2000."
Wine Spectator

90 Points

"Bright yellow. Leesy orchard fruit and tangerine aromas are brightened by zesty minerality and a kiss of pungent white flowers. Deep and powerfully concentrated, offering ripe pear and peach flavors along with exotic baking spices. Finishes creamy and long, echoing the smoky lees quality. This shows very good depth and strength."

Critical Acclaim

"This transforms the sweet ripeness of the 2000 vintage into ornate flavor, matching the intensity of its white chalk minerality with broad apricot notes. It’s a round wine with the stamina to carry those complex flavors through a long finish."

Learn About Champagne

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Learn About Vintage

Vintage Champagne and Sparkling Wines Vintage Champagne is made in particularly good years with optimum weather and the best grape selection. Some houses, like Dom Perignon, only make vintage Champagne, so they do not produce a wine every year and have no non-vintage bottlings. What makes vintage Champagne better?
