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 has propelled Dom Perignon, the Champagne, to the heights it has reached today. True believers in evolution and the relevancy of vintage, Dom Perignon has pioneered the practice of library releases and proving to the world that this is a wine to last the ages. ✦ dom Perignon Rosé 2003 wS 96 » $315 "Finely detailed in texture...Broad and creamy on the palate, featuring a long, echoing finish." (180044) hisTory in The MaKing T he historic house of Taittinger has seen its ups and downs throughout history, but today they are surly operating at an all-new level. Their best wine, the Comtes de Champagne, is renowned for its purity and longevity, produced entirely from Chardonnay sourced from the top vineyards in the Côte des Blancs. The 2006 is being called the best Comtes ever made, which is saying quite a bit when you consider the heights that mature Taittinger Champagne can reach. The future looks bright, especially with the 2006 Comtes de Champagne in your cellar. ✦ Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2006 AG 97+ » $165 "...Nothing short of magnificent...remains the single best value (in relative terms) in tête de cuvée Champagne...There is little doubt the 2006 Comtes de Champagne is a magical Champagne in the making."
