Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Blanc 2000
I was excited to get to taste such a well-known champagne. Toasty bread and biscuit notes alongside citrus. Very concentrated flavors on the palate, I really liked the tight focus of flavors. Quite dry. Sharp, crisp acidity. I liked this wine quite a bit, though it does come with a hefty price.
Light in feel and exceptionally elegant. Creamy in texture with persistent, tiny bubbles. Classic Champagne nose and flavors of yeast, toast, pear, minerals and subtle tropical fruits that seem to gain weight with each sip. Very crisp and clean, the essence of purity. A wine to sip every night before dinner when we become billionaires.
Wafts of seaside air and citrus fruits on the nose. It brings a lovely graininess to the palate with flavours of pear and cream. And the finish goes on forever! A lovely champagne
Notes of white pepper and an exotic floral bouquet on the nose. Flavors were simple and clean, with hints of anise and lemon while being dominated by crisp pear and mango notes. Ended with a distinct green, vegetal finish.
I really don't think I have enjoyed champagne until I had this. Sure, I'd like a glass here or there to mix with orange juice or on new years or to freshen my palate or celebrate, but I never said, "Now, this, is amazing." Well, this was amazing... I'll quote my friend Drew, "The bubbles cream in my mouth"
Who can turn down a glass of Dom?
External Reviews for Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Blanc
The 2000 Dom Perignon is a gorgeous, seductive wine that floats on the palate with remarkable grace. Toasty aromas meld into freshly cut flowers, apricots and pears, with sweet notes of mint and licorice that linger on the long finish. This perfumed, inviting Dom Perignon is elegance personified, and in this vintage the wine fully merits its lofty reputation. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. Pale gold with a fine bead. Gently smoky aromas of lemon, pear, bay, buttered toast and lees. Round, lightly sweet orange and pear flavors are underscored by smoky minerals and given bite by refreshingly bitter lemon pith. Finishes with a lingering smokiness. This is drinking very well right now and offers classic DP toastiness. Starts out round and plush, then the structure takes over. Light peach and berry flavors prevail as this plays out on the lingering finish. Give it a little time to integrate, but this should develop well. Best from 2009 through 2024. -BS
In the 17th century Dom Pierre Prignon the cellar master of the Abbey of Hautvillers in Epernay developed a wine whose extraordinary quality would make him the spiritual father of Champagne and one of the great visionaries of the winemaking world. Dom Prignon longed to produce the `best wine in the world` and there is much written testimony to the success of Dom Prignon's wine with the most noble and wealthy personalities of the era.Dom Prignon was one of the very first producers to assemble wines starting with the grapes as well as the first to master the production of white wines from red grapes to achieve a giant leap forward in quality. Made exclusively from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes from ten Grand Cru vineyards and from the oldest vines at the Abbey of Hautvillers Dom Prignon is produced only in exceptional vintage years.
Dom Perignon Wine Spectator rated 92 points. An intensely flavored Champagne, displaying tropical fruit, berry and citrus aromas and flavors enmeshed in finely woven texture, ending with an aftertaste of dried fruit. Good firm structure lends support. Dom Perignon is the definition of luxury. This bottle of Dom Perignon Champagne is a sparkling wine praised for its "well-orchestrated, precise, and full-bodied taste." Leaves a distinctive signature of style, class, and highly refined taste. Moet \& Chandon Brut Champagne Cuvee Dom Perignon 750ml
There's a high-toned minty graphite accent to the aroma, with a citric edge on the palate. The structure is overlaid with lemon and bread dough notes. This is tight and crisp on the finish, so break out the sole or shellfish, or wait a few years.
The Champagne named after the monk who may have invented Champagne. Combines rich flavors and great complexity in a superior age-worthy Champagne.
Der Nectar Impérial ist eine wahre Offenbarung für die Sinne. Die Assemblage und Dosierung wird von der Pinot Noir-Rebe dominiert. Weich und samtig, ein zugleich reiner und sinnlicher Champagner, dessen Fülle die Sinne in Wallung bringt. Qualität: Demi-Sec Farbe: mittleres Goldgelb Aroma: Backobst, Zuckerstangen, reifer Weizen Verkostung: ein ausgewogener und sanfter Abgang mit Rosinenaromen
Starts out round and plush then the structure takes over. Light peach and berry flavors prevail as this plays out on the lingering finish. Give it a little time to integrate but this should develop well. Best from 2009 through 2024. -BS Wine Spectator.
