Dom Pérignon is only ever produced as a vintage champagne. Each vintage is a singular and unique creation that expresses both the character of the year, and the character of Dom Pérignon. After at least eight years maturing in the cellars, the wine embodies the perfect balance of Dom Pérignon, the Plénitude of harmony.
The stretch of excellent weather in 2009 was unprecedented, and allowed them to explore new frontiers of grape ripeness in Champagne. This vintage offers a taste of the ripest and richest fruit, grapes in their prime, with the promise of the future wine's freshness and energy. The 2009 vintage brings a prodigious, sunny, bold and generous decade to a close.
On the palate there are notes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest which combines seamlessly with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine. The wine opens up and is complimented with woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche. The fruit on the palate is majestic: ripe, fleshy and profound. Beyond the richness and a certain voluptuousness is a strong impression of consistency that prevails. The wine’s power is remarkably restrained. The various sensations – silky, salty, sappy, bitter and briny – converge and persist on the palate.
