Dom Perignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

“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.” – James Suckling

Not a fan of sparklers but I enjoyed it. Now it was after a gig at the Whiskey while celebrating at The Rainbow and adrenaline was still high so I probably would have liked anything.

There’s a sense of tension paired with grace in this deftly balanced version, with a rich and smoky vein of minerality underscoring the flavors of poached apple, honey, financier and sun-dried black cherry, showing hints of roasted almond, coffee liqueur and ground spice. Drink now through 2029.

It is very dark ruby and opens with a fragrant black cherry bouquet with notes of chocolate and a hint of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, very smooth and almost velvety. - John Smith, Wine Lover's Magazine

This tasting only serves to highlight just how great the 2004 Dom Pérignon is. A wine that has totally blossomed in bottle, the 2004 is firing on all cylinders right now. Rich, ample and beautifully nuanced, the 2004 has it all; expressive aromatics, deep fruit and more than enough structure to age well for decades. I have been tasting the 2004 since before it was released and it just keeps getting better and better. Today, it is stunning. It is amazing to consider that in 2004, yields were the largest ever recorded in Champagne.

A graceful Champagne, with minerally drive. Firm acidity and a rich vein of smoky mineral meshes with the plush texture, offering finely woven flavors of mirabelle jam, toasted brioche, crunchy pear, honey and smoked almond. Delivers a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2029.

The initial notes of fresh almond and grapefruit gradually lead into cashew nut and spices .

Dom Perignon is the prestige cuvee of the Moët et Chandon Champagne house. It is named after the famous monk, who was the most important early influence in the development of Champagne into the sparkling wine we know today. It was not the first Champagne to use his name, as early in the last century small farmer-growers at Hautvilliers, employed it for their wine. Unfortunately for them they did not register the name, Dom Perignon. Sometime around the late 1920s, Champagne Moët adopted his name for their new luxury prestige cuvee of Champagne. Helped in part by Hollywood glamour, this extremely well renowned brand has developed a widespread reputation in countries across the globe. In most vintages it has proved to be excellent quality and is in huge demand. This champagne usually requires no introduction, as there are few wines that can equal it. Vintage: 2002 Appearance: Pale yellow with gold highlights Nose: Tones of brioche and honey combined with almond and apricot. Taste: After the upfront intensity and roundness, there is a gradual tension which becomes persistent, vibrant, pure, mineral and fruity.

The whole is greater than the sum of the parts in this harmonious version. A delicate bead caresses the mouth, while flavors of currant pâte de fruit, dried apricot, pastry and pickled ginger expand on the palate. Subtly floral, with a fine frame of acidity driving this to the mouthwatering finish of smoky mineral and dried fruit. Drink now through 2030.
