"The 2006 Dom Pérignon is a beautifully balanced, harmonious Dom Pérignon that strikes an incredibly appealing stylistic middle ground. Rich, voluptuous and creamy, the 2006 shows off fabulous intensity in a style that brings together the ripeness of 2002 with the greater sense of verve and overall freshness that is such a signature of the 2004. Bass notes and a feeling of phenolic grip on the finish recall the 2003, as the Pinot Noir is particularly expressive today. After an irregular summer that saw elevated temperatures in July followed by cooler, damp conditions in August, more favorable weather returned in September, pushing maturation ahead and leading to a long, protracted harvest. The 2006 falls into the family of riper, more voluptuous Dom Pérignons, but without veering into the level of opulence seen in vintages such as 2002."

At an age of 35 years, it is older than the Pale & Dry X.O., and has been crafted in a different, more classic style. Deeper in colour with a more pronounced amber hue that is tinged with bright flashes of gold. The bouquet is initially oaky, but gives way to aromas of mushrooms, dry vine shoots and vanilla. On the palate, the Vesper is full-bodied with an exceptional roundness and remarkable length, with a smooth finish. This is a very full, mature, yet refined Cognac; one for the connoisseur! Serve Vesper with a variety of sweet and savoury dishes, from foie gras to cheese to your favourite chocolate dessert.
"Smells wonderful: complex, classic XO, with candied peel, a sniff of chocolate, Brazil nut and macadamia. Jamon too: umami sapid-sweetness. Round and patined on the palate, but charged with zesty candied fruits before a tight, flinty rancio finish. Classy."
