2009 Dom Perignon

$1,720

The 2009 Dom Pérignon is already drinking well, exhibiting expressive aromas of ripe apple, peach, Meyer lemon, marzipan and dried white flowers that are framed by the classic nutty, autolytic notes that so often define this cuvée. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with a broad attack, a brisk and refined mousse, appreciable dry extract and a notably saline finish. While this is a comparatively ample, gourmand vintage of Dom Pérignon, there’s sufficient concentration and structural tension–which has become more apparent with a bit of bottle age–to suggest that this may be surprisingly long lived. 93 points, Robert Parker

There’s s a subtle power to this graceful Champagne, which boasts a firm, crystalline frame of acidity married to the fine, satin like mousse and notes of white raspberry, brioche and Earl Grey tea. Seamless through to the long finish of smoke and spice accents, this opens beautifully in the glass. 96 points, Wine Spectator

Description

DOM PERIGNON

Dom Pérignon produces exclusively vintage champagne, each of which showcases the unique characteristics of a single growing season in Champagne. Richard Geoffrey – chef de cave (cellar master) at the House since 1990 and responsible for 15 vintage cuvees – limits his blends to only those vintages that will age more than 20 years. As a general rule, he produces a maximum of 6 vintages per decade. After its elaboration, the wine spends 7 years ageing in bottle before it is first released.
