Dom Perignon 1996 Vintage Oenotheque Champagne 75cl has an apparent paradox with concentration and movement vying for ascendancy. This wine's structure is both tense and assertive with dark, underlying peaty notes emerging. At first, it is deceptively understated leading to a complex balance between fruit and acidity. This Champagne turns explosively layered on the palate with remarkable elegance and power.  

The term 'Oenotheque' refers to a place to store wine or a 'wine library'. Dom Perignon Oenotheque is a wine that has been late-disgorged following extra time spent in the cellar.

1996 was full of contrasting weather with a changeable summer that saw wetter periods which never quite made up for the earlier hydric deficit. Eventually, one month before picking, it was a blend of hot weather and north-eastern winds that created such a mature vintage.
The nose carries rich flavours of praline combined with citrus and dried figs with darker, underlying iodine and peaty notes emerging. The wine's energy is almost contained for a moment before exploding and vibrating with energy.

These mature vintages named 'Oenotheque' were re-branded in 2014 as 'Plenitude'.
