Dom Pérignon 1975 P3

A Champagne Rarity

Strictly speaking, 1975 was not an ideal vintage. Spring was cold and bud break was late, although flowering took place in good conditions. The summer was warmer than usual but did include a number of August storms. Harvest began on 29 September and needed to be completed quite quickly, as the weather soon worsened. A small crop produced wines high in acidity, which gave many 1975 Champagnes the structure for long ageing.
