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. With production just 20-25% of the volume of 2004 and the smallest of Richard Geoffroy's tenure, this release lasted just under six months.

Weather: The 2005 vintage was unpredictable and full of contrasts. The weather was mostly warm with little rain, however a heatwave in August followed by a cool and rainy September moderated initial anticipation. In the end, a drastic selection in the vineyard ensured a limited volume of exceptional quality and indeed, 2005 was an extremely short vintage.

Tasting Note: At first this is quite tight on the nose with delicate hints of pear and apple. It is immediately much richer on the palate, developing more with every five minutes that we revisited it. Delightfully ripe green fruits, burnt apple and caramel flavours. This is quite light with impressively balanced acidity. Probably not a champagne for long-term ageing, but a fantastic production from a tough vintage.
