Dom Pérignon is undoubtedly one of the world’s finest champagnes. It is named after a Benedictine monk who was thought to have invented the traditional method for making sparkling wines. Dom Pérignon is only available as a vintage cuvee, made only in the best years. The wine is 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir, with 7g/l dosage. All vintages need at least 12 months ageing to nurture Dom Pérignon’s signature silky mousse.

Tasting Notes

96 Points Wine Spectator
The 2008 Dom Pérignon is fabulous, but quite remarkably, it was even more open when I tasted it a year ago. Bright, focused and crystalline in its precision, the 2008 is going to need a number of years before it is at its best. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper give the 2008 its chiseled, bright profile. Several recent bottles have all been magnificent. What I admire most about the 2008 is the way it shows all the focus, translucence and energy that is such a signature of the year, and yet it is also remarkably deep and vertical. In other words, the 2008 is a Champagne that plays in three dimensions. Drink 2020-2058.

97 Points James Suckling
This is a DP that shows the ripeness of the 2009 vintage yet remains full of energy. Gorgeous aromas of cream, apple, mango, honeysuckle, and chalk follow through to a full body and super fine, tight texture. Dense and agile. Vinous. It’s like a top grand cru white Burgundy. Think Batard-Montrachet. More depth than the 2006. Drink now.
