Dom Pérignon only creates vintage wines; it is an absolute commitment. Only the best grapes of the most exceptional years are used, making each vintage distinct. It is the perfect embodiment of the Power of Creation – an act of creation that elevates the mind and enlightens the world. Dom Pérignon Vintage is the icon of the house, it showcases perfect equilibrium, revealing the harmony that is so characteristic of Dom Pérignon. The wine is complete, rhythmic and tactile. Dom Pérignon Vintage is exotic: its tactile thickness, its roundness, and its utterly unique depth of flavour. “The Dom Pérignon is a gorgeous, totally seductive Champagne that will drink well right out of the gate. Despite the warm, ripe personality of Dom Pérignon is quite gracious, there is plenty of depth underpinning the fruit. With each successive tasting, it seems to have gained more power and breadth, especially on the finish. Above all else, the is decidedly restrained for a warm, radiant vintage. It is not overtly flamboyant nor phenolically intense. Instead, it is a beautifully balanced Champagne, with all of its elements in the right place.” – 94+ points Antonio Galloni Vinous Media

#2. Louis Roederer Cristal Brut

33 ratings
Cristal is a remarkably balanced and refined champagne whose length is inimitable. It has a silky texture and fruity aromas, complemented by a powerful mineral quality with white fruit and citrus notes. Cristal is a wine that keeps well: it can be conserved for over twenty years without losing its freshness and character.

#3. Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Musigny Grand Cru Cuvee Vieilles Vignes

25 ratings
Critic tasting note: (2001 vintage) "A classic, clear red color with pronounced orange notes. The bouquet opens like a peacock’s tail with austere notes of currant jam, tobacco, antique leather, and garigue. It is incredible how it changes in the glass with breathing. The mouthfeel is austere, rich, and creates a great sensorial effect."

#5. Chateau Haut-Brion Pessac-Leognan

15 ratings
Jean de Pontac began constituting the Haut-Brion vineyard, in the Graves region, in 1525. His descendants went on to produce “New French Claret”, the precursor of today’s great red wines. Their efforts enabled Arnaud III de Pontac to sell his wine under the estate’s name as early as 1660. It gained a fine reputation and enormous success in London. The first of the Bordeaux great growths was born! Haut-Brion’s history has been marked by many famous men: Count Joseph de Fumel (Field Marshal, Governor of the Province of Guyenne, and Mayor of Bordeaux), Talleyrand (Foreign Minister of Napoleon I, Emperor of France) and, more recently, C. Douglas Dillon (American ambassador to France and US Secretary of the Treasury during the Kennedy administration). In 1961, Haut-Brion was the first of the great growths to use stainless steel fermentation vats, and continues to be in the forefront of innovation thanks to the meticulous selection of the ideal clones for each grape variety used at the estate. Through the centuries, the owners and managers of Haut-Brion have been obsessed with perpetuating the château’s reputation for quality. Classified a First Growth in 1855, Haut-Brion has done everything possible ever since then to maintain its standing.
