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 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 2035

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.

“Tasted blind. Very persistent bead. Creamy and rich on the nose – almost Dom Pérignon-like! Quite sweet. Is this another Taittinger? Fine bead. Leaves the palate very clean despite the high dosage. Pretty smart, especially if you don’t mind high dosage.
Drink 2017-2024”

“‘We’re trying to understand ripeness and put even more depth and density into the wines’, according to Chef de cave, Richard Geoffroy. For the first time they decided to switch the order of release, and release this before the 2008 – mostly because the 2008 was not ready.
Rich and exuberant. This is a wine that’s already approachable, has integrated considerably since it was launched, and is so extrovert it’s almost doing a cancan.

“100% grand and premier cru vineyards. 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. Seven years' ageing on lees. Dosage 4 g/l.
Tasted blind. Nutty. Well integrated. A very attractive wine. Not too austere. Real complexity. Pungent. So precisely built! Very long. 12.5%

“60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 100% grands and premier crus. Aged for seven years on the lees. Dosage 4 g/l.
Tasted blind. Massively concentrated ripe nose. Big and sweetish. Dramatic. But ready and creamy.

“The 2009 Dom Pérignon is open, seductive and radiant, as it has always been. Soft curves, mid-weight structure and tons of plain allure make the 2009 impossible to resist in its youth. This bottle, the best I have tasted so far, offers a distinc citrus and floral-driven profile that adds a good deal of brightness. Above all else, the 2009 is a gorgeous Champagne to drink now and over then next few decades. This is the first time in the house’s history that a vintage was not released sequentially.”

“The 2009 Dom Pérignon is a gorgeous, totally seductive Champagne that will drink well right out of the gate. Medium in body and unusually open-knit at this stage, the 2009 is one of the most accessible young Dom Pérignons I can remember tasting. It is an excellent choice to drink while waiting for the release of the stellar 2008 and some recent vintages that remain very young, including the 2006. Despite the warm, ripe personality of the 2009 Dom Pérignon is quite gracious, but there is plenty of depth underpinning the fruit. With each successive tasting, the 2009 seems to have gained more power and breadth, especially on the finish. Above all else, the 2009 is decidedly restrained for a warm, radiant vintage. It is not as overtly flamboyant as the 2002 nor as phenolically intense as years like 2003 and 2006. Instead, the 2009 is a beautifully balanced Champagne, with all of its elements in the right place. Tasted three times.”

“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.”

    Dom Pérignon launched their new Brut Vintage 2009 last month before 2008 - the first time in history they have skipped a vintage. We tasted it alongside 2003 and 2006 with head winemaker Richard Geoffroy, who described it as "majestic and persistent".
