In 1993, the decision was made to create a Blanc des Blancs worthy of the history that brought them fame. The Blanc des m illenaires was born, and since that time only four vintages have been released, starting with the 1983. Firmly rooted in the realm of the truly limited, and produced only from the highest- quality Chardonnay grown throughout four of the region's Grand Cru vineyards, it is only the Cellar m aster of Charles Heidsieck who can declare the production of m illenaires. We are now presented with the 2004 Blanc des m illenaires. It's a timeless wine from a great vintage, which proudly bears the name and lives up to the history of Charles Heidsieck. ✦ Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millenaires Brut 2004 JR 18.5+/20 » $215 "... Dramatic. Real bite and class. Great balance. Tiny bead…. Makes you salivate." Jancis Robinson (180831) a C H a MP a GN e TO La ST TH e aG e S K nown as the father of modern-day champagne, the name Dom Perignon was adopted by the m oet company when they sought to create the world's greatest prestige bottle. Seeing as they had already acquired the same Abby of Hautvillers and vineyards which Dom Perignon himself had used in the 17th century, the name and all the fame that came with it was assured. Yet it was the vision of the brand's creators that had propelled Dom Perignon, the Champagne, to the heights it has reached today. True believers in evolution and the relevancy of vintage, they pioneered the practice of library releases and proved to the world that this is a wine to last the ages. For many Champagne lovers, vintage may not matter, but at Dom Perignon it means everything. The 2000 Dom Perignon P2 is a piece of living history, already irresistible, yet able to mature for decades in your cellar. ✦ d om Perignon P2 2000 WS 97 » $369 "A beautiful nose… draws you into the glass of this stunning 2000… Hard to stop sipping this deftly meshed Champagne."
