1955 Dom Pérignon,
to accompany dessert at a White House dinner planned for November 25, 1963

1955 was the archetype of the classical vintage that defines harmony in Champagne—maybe the greatest of the decade. Very energetic and racy, remarkably thorough, this wine is at the same time intense and profound. These qualities express the typical, intriguing paradox of youth versus maturity, combining to create a feeling of completeness. Right in the center, the fruit (sultana) is still very vibrant, with notes of vanilla, smoke and praline (sugar-coated almond). (1)

Full, vigorous colour. Fine, very concentrated and intense nose with nuances of cedar, dark chocolate and eastern tobacco, but a core of ripe, sweet blackberries. The palate has elegance with a wonderful minerality giving a very clean, vigorous impression. Rich, full and lovely to drink. Quite honest and powerful wine. It is not as exotic and stylish as 1947 or 1950, but has an excellent, long finish. Still has a fine future. (2)
