The Champagne Dom Perignon is probably best known bubbles around the world, entitled to the Benedictine monk Pierre Perignon intimately linked to the origins of Champagne itself.
Dom Pérignon is vintage champagne only. Dom Pérignon 2009 vintage brings a prodigious, sunny, bold and generous decade to a close.
CLASSIFICATION: Vintage Champagne
GRAPES: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
COLOUR & BOUQUET: bright straw yellow with golden hues; notes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest combine with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine. The wine opens up, with the whole complemented by woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche.
TASTE: the fruit 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.
FOOD PAIRINGS: delicate seafood salad or octopus marinated in orange juice and roasted in butter.
ALCOHOL: 12,5% vol.
How to store it
The cellaring time for vintage champagnes is longer. They may be opened between 7 and 10 years after purchase, or even later than that.
