Champagne Dom Perignon Overview
+
Dom Pérignon is only available as a vintage champagne and is only produced in exceptional years. Each vintage is a creation, singular and unique, that expresses both the character of the year, and the character of Dom Pérignon. After at least eight years of elaboration in the cellars, the wine embodies the perfect balance of Dom Pérignon, the Plénitude of harmony.

Weather: The 1999 season began with hailstorms in May which destroyed many vines, though as the year went on warmer weather prevailed throughout July and August. The year developed promisingly with high expectations, until heavy rainfall in the second week of September contributed to the loss of many crops. Despite the rain the grapes had maturated well in the long summer and early concerns over dilution of flavour never became an issue.

Tasting Note: Now some years on from the initial release, these champagnes are starting to show how good they are. On the nose hints of ripe fruits and toastiness lead to a palate full of flavour. Exotic fruits combine with a slight touch of that creamy vanilla richness from its long ageing both on and off the lees. A full and lasting finish pays compliment to a vintage that today is showing better than ever.

“Mild, soft nose with subtly emerging toastiness and plenty of smoky minerality, ground chalk characters and a touch of vegetal notes. Round, wide palate with soft acidity and stylish effervescence. Mellow and round vintage with medium-term potential. Does not possess the usual racy classiness of DP but a completely different, full and calm expression.”

“Served not blind immediately after 2002 through to 2006 (which were all served blind), so of course it seemed particularly beautiful. Pale creamy minerally savoury nose. Really lively and punchy. Some smokiness. A hint of honey. Very good bottle. ”

“An absolutely fabulous, great, broad-shouldered costume with juicy exotic fruitiness and an almost 76-like sensation of essence and fullness of body. A real fruit bomb that is going to give pleasure to many generations of wine-lovers. The funny thing is that this wine does not have even a trace of Dom Pérignon's typically toasted character as yet, despite its sweet mellowness. The most important explanation for this is probably the brief time since being disgorged, but also, paradoxically enough, the wine's gorgeous oiliness that makes it difficult for the toasted aromas to elbow their way out.”

“These four vintages of Dom Pérignon provide a fascinating snapshot of how the house has performed in recent years. The 1999 Dom Pérignon is a little flabbier than the 2000. Smoke, toastiness, tar and ripe fruit emerge from the glass in a generous, expansive style. The 1999 offers more body than the 2000 but the aromas and flavors are less well-articulated. This is a relatively simple Dom Pérignon, yet the wine possesses outstanding balance and plenty of harmony. According to Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy the warm vintage also resulted in relatively high yields, and the low-acid style is most reminiscent of the 1976.”
