It is said that 'the heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing of..'' because, despite the extremes and ups and downs of life, there are those who know how to extract the best from it. The year 1976 was extraordinarily dry, with extreme fluctuations throughout the year, which saw early flowering and the extremely hot summer reduced to 84 days, from the traditional period of 100 days between flowering and harvest. The harvest, by way of exception, began on September 1, and although reason did not comprehend this, from the very heart of the harvest emerged an exceptional maturity in the grapes, resulting in high-quality wines. Dom Pérignon Vintage 1976, pale in color and with a fine but generous fizz, is wide and fruity to the nose, with an intense aroma of grapes and peach, a robust palate yet at the same time subtle, with a slight touch of acidity. This is a vigorous wine, ideal to accompany spicy dishes.

How to serve
Reviews of Dom Pérignon Vintage 1976
- Palate: The wine's opulence - contained and succulent, round at heart - reveals itself in the mouth. The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy. The whole eventually melts into an exquisite bitterness tinged with the briny taste of the sea
- The weather in 2006 was mixed, but warm and dry overall. While July was scorching hot, August was unusually cool and wet. The almost summery weather in September made the vintage possible by drying out the few patches of botrytis and maturing the grapes far more than usual. The harvest began on September 11 and lasted nearly four weeks.
Dom Perignon 2006
Fantastic colour. Very yeasty and biscuity on the nose. It had a correct astringency.
I took this Champagne during a brunch.
