2004 Dom Perignon
Dom Perignon is the prestige Cuvee of the giant Moet et Chandon Champagne house. It is named after the famous monk, Dom Pierre Perignon, who was the most important early influence in the development of Champagne into the sparkling wine we know today. Wine was already being made in the Champagne region before Pierre was born.

Dom Perignon’s legacy to the world was a procedure for production of Champagne. This included riddling the ageing bottles so the sediment can be removed, adding a dosage for a secondary fermentation, and use of corks to seal the bottles. These steps combined with the availability of stronger bottles which could hold the added pressure, allowed the commercial production of Champagne to begin in about 1700. Dom Perignon died in 1716. His famous statement “I see stars” was uttered upon his first taste of Champagne.

2005 Louis Roederer Cristal
The jewel of the House of Roederer is Cristal, created in 1876 for Tsar Alexander II. This is champagne at its finest, as inspired today as it has always been, the embodiment of elegance and purity. The 2004 Brut is a powerful, structured Cristal layered with considerable fruit. Chardonnay seems to play the leading role in 2004, at least for now. This is a super-impressive, complete Cristal, although still quite young. The blend is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. 97 points from the Wine Advocate.

2004 Clicquot La Grande Dame
This is a great wine which pays homage to a great lady in the Champagne world, Madame Clicquot. The first Grande Dame was the 1962 vintage which was released in 1972 to celebrate the bicentennial of Maison Clicquot.
