Description & Technical Information
-
Working in partnership with Dom Pérignon, to celebrate the launch of 2009 vintage, Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka has created this exclusive Limited Edition label. This collaboration is an encounter between the dark, iconic and playful style of Dom Pérignon Vintage and the luminous, solar and elegant work of Yoshioka. His works, which transcend the boundaries of product design, architecture and exhibition installation, are highly evaluated also as art.

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 2009 vintage was a difficult year at first with a mild and rainy spring. The threat of mildew was high and storms in July further raised fears for the health of the grapes. However, a warm August of uninterrupted hot and dry weather was the catalyst for an idyllic harvest. Picking began on the 12th September in perfect conditions.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru
Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
Ageing: 7 years on the lees
Dosage: 4 g/l
Alcohol: 12.5%
Drink: Now to 2030

Tasting Note: The heat of the year produced grapes of incredible ripeness, reflected in Geoffroy’s decision to use a much lower dosage for Dom Pérignon 2009: just 4 g/l. Already very approachable, it surprisingly doesn’t have the obvious signs of a warm year. A blend from a total of twenty-one villages, Dom Pérignon 2009 is an impressive champagne. It has a silky texture and a hint of liquorice on the palate. Flavours of grapefruit and white peaches lead to a long finish. This Dom Pérignon is tasting well now but will benefit significantly from some time ageing in the bottle.

Expert Reviews

Jancis Robinson MW
“Just being released. Very pale, very youthful nose. Lots of zest and freshness. Introvert and tight. But approachable in terms of texture. The flavour is not fully formed yet but it’s already a pleasure to drink from the point of view of balance, presumably thanks to the relatively low acidity. Light hint of bitterness on the end. Length. Palate-enrobing! Lovely texture.”
