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
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"
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.
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.
Die Geschmackskomposition dieses Champagners wartet mit Nuancen von frischen Mandeln und Grapefruit auf, spielt zarte Noten von Cashewnüssen und Gewürzen ein - und endet in einem herrlichen, zartcremigen Finale von getoastetem Brioche.
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.
The sensual, full-bodied 2000 vintage Dom Perignon with two beautiful Champagne flutes makes an outstanding holiday gift presentation.
This is a classic Dom Perignon vintage. It?s big and fruity initially, a mouthful of ripeness. Then the texture and structure of this dense wine come through. It?s as much wine as Champagne, rich, the apple and fresh pear flavors vying with yeasty
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
