Champagne Dom Perignon Overview
+
The 2004 vintage leaves its mark on the history of Dom Pérignon for its ease and generosity. In contrast with the previous year, vine growth was regular and progressed without incident, producing bunches of a significant number and size. Whilst the weather remained moderate for some time, with the month of August particularly cool, the vintage was defined by the dry heat of the final few weeks before harvest. Nuanced and precise, Dom Pérignon 2004 is a natural sum of perfectly consistent parts.

Tasting note: On the nose, aromas of almond gradually develop into classic toasted notes that combine with an abundance of fruit. In the mouth, a youthful grapefruit and lemongrass flavour combines with a creamy crème brûlée edge that is a hallmark of Dom Pérignon from a year where there is ripe fruit. The full taste lingers with the utmost elegance on a spicy note and finishes with crisp acidity. Dom Pérignon 2004 expresses the singularity of the Dom Pérignon style: the tension between youthfulness and maturity and a unique mouth-feel. Compared to 2002 this may well have better ageing potential since it has both forward ripe fruit and a strong balance of acidity.

Technical information:
Grape Varieties: 53% Pinot Noir, 47% Chardonnay
Dosage: 5 g/l

The 75cl bottles of Dom Pérignon 2004 come in a branded gift box (as shown in the bottom left picture).

Just 100 jeroboams of Dom Pérignon 2004 have been released to the UK market. They are individually numbered and presented in a stunning branded wooden gift box (as shown in the bottom left picture). Stored correctly at a constant temperature close to 12°C and protected from light, these jeroboams have the potential to age for more than thirty years and still be relatively youthful in style. We have several in stock: our jeroboam available for same-day delivery is No. 328.

“One of the stars in this tasting, the 2004 Dom Pérignon is starting to express the potential it hinted at as a young wine. Specifically, the 2004 has gained quite a bit of volume and overall depth within the last few years. The first signs of aromatic nuance are starting to develop, which suggests the 2004 will soon enter its first plateau of maturity.”

“Elegantly toasty sweet patisserie nose with coffee, perfume and flowers. Lively, mineral, racy, crisp palate with great fruit purity. On the reductive side but beautifully so. Still young with tight, compact palate. A ballerina. A classic, super fresh and delightfully light Dom Pérignon with a green note and a cool breeze to it. I will love to follow up how this one ages. Very much a DP and very much a 2004.”

“The 2004 Dom Pérignon is from a classic vintage and a very generous year in terms of yields. White-golden in color, the clear, discreet and subtle nose gives way to dried white rather than yellow fruits, raisins and hazelnuts, as well as to floral and herbal aromas. Less generous and concentrated in the mouth than the 2005 and austerely dry at the moment, the 2004 shows its great finesse and characteristic minerality. There should be a better point of time to praise its class, so trust and keep it!”

“Tasted blind. Very minerally nose. Excellent acidity. Very well structured. Still a little bit of framework here as well as fruit. Quite a youthful wine. But broad and exotic on the nose. 2004? ”

“Racy, silky and vibrant in the glass, the 2004 Dom Pérignon is all about energy. Here the flavors are bright and delineated throughout, with veins of acidity and minerality that give the wine its sense of drive. Mint, rosemary and yellow-fleshed fruits linger on the finish with the classic DP reductive overtones that are such a signature. Once again, the 2004 Dom Pérignon truly shines. The 2004 Dom Pérignon is a wine to treasure over the next thirty or so years.”

“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.”

“Vivid yellow. High-pitched, mineral-accented aromas of pear, Meyer lemon, quince and jasmine, with smoke and toasted grain qualities adding bass notes. Spicy, penetrating and pure, boasting impressive vivacity to its fresh orchard and citrus fruit flavors. Gains weight and breadth with air while maintaining vivacity, picking up a gingery nuance that carries through a long, smoky finish. I'd bet on this taut, youthful Champagne rewarding many more years of patience.”

“Lily-of-the-valley perfume and scents of lightly toasted brioche and almond rise from the glass of Moet’s 2004 Brut Dom Perignon, along with hints of the apricot, pear and grapefruit that then inform a luscious and creamy yet strikingly delicate as well as consummately refreshing palate. Sweet-saline savor of scallop – also already intimated in the nose – lends compulsive saliva-inducement to a ravishingly rarified and persistent finish, joined by alkaline, nutty, liquid-floral, and nori seaweed notes for a performance of head-scratching subtlety and intrigue. (In case my description hasn’t already made clear, we have here inter alia a fantastic sushi wine.) This will be worth following for at least the next 6-8 years, in the course of demonstrating that iconic status as a luxury brand, and elevated (albeit secret) production numbers by no means preclude a wine of understated as well as profound beauty.”

“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”

“Very pale straw gold with surely the most discreet bubbles in the champagne world. Very different from the 2003. A much more recognisable Dom Pérignon sort of nose with fairly intense classic toastiness. Minerals and raciness rather than fruit and body. Marked acidity and even a little lean but very fine. There are notes of iodine and bitter orange peel. This wine really gets saliva flowing. The finish is not massively persistent but overall this is a very well mannered wine. A Chablis of a champagne - which 2003 definitely wasn't! (It was more of a Pouilly-Fuissé.)”

“The 2004 Dom Pérignon continues to develop beautifully. A vibrant, focused Champagne, the 2004 clearly reflects the personality of the year. Freshly cut flowers, white peaches and pears are woven together in a Champagne that impresses for its focus and energy. Chiseled saline note support the crystalline finish. I imagine the 2004 will always remain relatively bright and linear, but at the same time, each time I have tasted it over the last two years the 2004 seems to have a little more body and broader shoulders. The 2004 will appeal most to readers who find the 2002 and 2003 too exuberant. There is a lot to like in the glass.”
