TN: 1971 Moët & Chandon Champagne Cuvée Dom Pérignon

  • 1971 Moët & Chandon Champagne Cuvée Dom Pérignon - France, Champagne (11/1/2013)
    From a low ullage bottle, around low shoulder but the colour was still bright and good. Beautiful, mature Champagne with aromas of truffle, honey, baked apple, decaying leaves, grilled nuts and toast. Full and creamy up front with a sweet tarte tatin heart. It really builds through the palate and is rich and powerful. Bubbles have lost plenty of psi and are barely perceptible and there is a kiss of acidity on the long finish.

Nice, a birth year wine for me.

Boy that’s a weird thought - that a significant amount of something [H2O -vs- CO2 ???] could escape from the bottle, but that there could still be some bubbles left in the wine.

You’d think that the wine would be completely “still” [or “flat”, like an open can of Coke after a day or so].
