2000 Dom Perignon Rose 'Rose Gold' Champagne Six-Liter (Methuselah)
Methuselah, great-granddaddy of Noah many times over, thus worn out by begetting, died at 969 years old. Dom Perignon, a Benedictine monk, lived to a mere 77 celibate years, and thus sired only what you now know as Champagne. He introduced corks, demanded thicker bottles so they wouldn't explode, and figured out how to get clear juice from red grapes. Consider this exceedingly rare Methuselah, a work of art that the old monk would surely appreciate.
This is a 6-Liter Bottle - of which only a handful were exported to the United States - of Dom Perignon's Vintage 2000 Rose. It is encased in rose gold, a stunning presentation. The winery describes floral notes, accompanied by candied citrus peel, cocoa, and smoky overtones.
Quite literally the Godfather of modern winemaking, Dom Perignon was a monk who lived at the Abby of Saint Pierre d'Hautvillers in the mid 1600s. While he was mesmerized by the bubbles captured in sparkling wine he did not (contrary to popular belief) invent sparkling wine. He did however spend nearly 50 years of his as the Abby's Cellar Master employing the most modern and thoughtful winemaking techniques. His efforts to "make the best wine in the world" are so legendary that his name lives on in perpetuity. Today the wine house of Dom Perignon's Chef de Cave strives to honor the namesake by producing a wine that is revealing of the lands' very soul. He's got a great canvas to work with; the picturesque rolling hills of the Marne Valley are the stuff of dreams for Champagne winemakers. Champagnes that set the world standard… talk about a legacy!About Dom Perignon
