MOET & CHANDON Dom Perignon Brut 2000
Brut Champagne
Estimate Per Bottle: 500-550

FIZZ FEST - GREAT Champagne - 2000 Dom Perignon RP94 - The 2000 Brut Dom Perignon is a gorgeous, seductive wine that floats on the palate with remarkable grace. Toasty aromas meld into freshly cut flowers, apricots and pears, with sweet notes of mint and licorice that linger on the long finish. This perfumed, inviting Dom Perignon is elegance personified, and in this vintage the wine fully merits its lofty reputation. According to winemaker Vincent Chaperone there is only one disgorgement date for the first release of Dom Perignon, and the 2000 was disgorged over a period of weeks in March and April, 2007, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018

Shiraz South Australia
Estimate Per Bottle: 3400-3500

CLINIC CERTIFICATION - Buy with confidence - PENFOLDS FIVE STAR - Rewards of Patience - Drink now to 2030. Deep crimson. Fresh roasted walnut, praline and earthy, waxy leather aromas with nutty vanilla espresso, spicy oak and salted liquorice notes. Beautifully concentrated inky deep wine with deep-set dark chocolate espresso, roasted walnut, vanilla spice and waxy leather flavours, fine persistent chalky but supple tannins, superb sweet fruit/oak complexity and long fresh integrated acidity. Finishes chalky firm. Wonderful complexity, richness and vigour. Will probably last quite a while longer. 87 percent shiraz, 13 percent cabernet sauvignon. Kalimna Vineyard (Barossa Valley), Barossa Valley, Magill Estate (Adelaide), Clare Valley and Coonawarra. “If you had to point to a wine which fulfilled the ambitions of Grange it would have to be the 1971.” Max Schubert, 1993. Topped the Gault-Millau Wine Olympics in Paris in 1979 – beating some of the best Rhône wines and creating a sensation. This vintage was used as an alternative investment indicator by Australia’s Access Economics during the 1990s. “Gloriously opulent and exhilarating with richly silky textures, marvellously complex flavours and morning-has-broken freshness.” (NB) “Supple, layered and finely fleshy with fine-grained complexity. Everything mature Grange from great years should be. A beautifully framed legend that has done nothing to diminish that reputation today.” (NRRewards of Patience 8th Edition
