Champagne lovers in Cape Town and Johannesburg can indulge in one of the finest wine events of the year: a lavish Dom Pérignon Celebration, at two exclusive venues, to mark the release of the much-lauded 2006 vintage.
Where & When
The event will be hosted by Wine Cellar – Fine Wine Merchants and Cellarers – on 7 April at Four Seasons, The Westcliff, and on 8 April at Ellerman House.
The evenings’ honoured guests will include representatives from Dom Pérignon.
About this Highly Praised Champagne
Dom Pérignon is one of the most prestigious Champagnes, and the newly released 2006 vintage is widely considered to be the greatest modern-day vintage since 1966. ‘It’s not often you fall backwards when a wine is first launched on the market,’ writes Richard Juhlin, the world’s foremost Champagne expert. Juhlin scores the 2006 vintage 97 points out of 100 – the highest score since the legendary 1966. Other world wine authorities, such as Jancis Robinson and the Wine Spectator magazine, also consider the 2006 to be among the finest vintages ever released.
About the Event
Both the Cape Town and Johannesburg Dom Pérignon Celebrations will be hedonistic, exclusive affairs, limited to a maximum of 24 guests at a cost of R 2,500 per person. The walk-around tastings will showcase Dom Pérignon 2006 alongside the 2005 and 2004 vintages, all served with perfectly paired canapés. The phenomenal vintage Rosé will also be on show, as will the newly released P2 – Dom Pérignon 1998’s ‘Second Plénitude’. A re-release of the 1998 vintage in the second phase of its life, the P2 is the highest-scoring Dom Pérignon in the Wine Spectator magazine.
Wine Cellar Director Roland Peens commented: ‘There is no other wine on the planet that combines the luxurious feel, fine quality and investment potential of Dom Pérignon. Wine Cellar is very proud to be associated with such an illustrious brand, and we look forward to hosting these spectacular evenings in Cape Town and Johannesburg.’
