Description & Technical Information
-
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 2000 vintage was seen by many as a miraculous year. The vines were hit by heavy rain, storms and hail in the winter, leaving a successful harvest on the brink. However, the vintage was saved by the hottest August and September in fifty years, providing the grapes with much needed sunshine and warmth.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru
Grape Varieties: 51% Chardonnay, 49% Pinot Noir
Ageing: 7 years on the lees
Disgorged: July 2008
Dosage: 6 g/l
Drink: Now to 2025

Tasting Note: On the nose, the first hints of fresh almond immediately open up into preserved lemon and dried fruits, rounded off by darker smokey and toasted qualities. On the palate, it is creamy, energetic and warm, focusing on the fruit, then gradually taking on more profound bass notes. Dom Pérignon 2002 is a magnetic, still-elusive wine that fully reveals the nature of this legendary House.

Expert Reviews
94/100
Antonio Galloni MW
“The 2000 Dom Pérignon is a gorgeous wine to drink now, as it is already showing quite a bit of aromatic and flavor complexity. Although the 2000 doesn’t have the multi-dimensional personality or structure of the very best DPs, it does offer tremendous drinking pleasure today. Hints of pastry, baked apple and mint add nuance, with a touch of reduction that lends an added kick of freshness. Ultimately, the 2000 is a very drinkable and delicious Dom Pérignon. ”

“Delicate, subdued, creamy nose with honey, apple and flowery characteristics. Mineral restraint, vegetal touches with toastiness emerging. Lightweight mouth-feel, finely-textured, round, smooth vivacious and accessible. Not one of the most precise or complex of the DP vintages but full of pleasure”

“It is always a trifle hazardous to express an opinion with too much cocksureness with regard to celebrities that have only recently been disgorged. I still believe that I can establish the fact that this is scarcely a great Dom Pérignon but rather only an enjoyable and pleasant ditto. The toasting is up to now absent and the floweriness characteristic of the vintage dominates the aroma with tones of geranium and gardenia. In the mouth there are the usual silkiness and roundness with undertones of mango and grenadine. Mature fruitiness lies softly far back on the palate when one has swallowed.”
