Private Tasting Experience
This is an opportunity to taste six vintages of Dom Pérignon at your house or at a location of your choosing with an option to be tutored through the tasting. Nick our founder presents most of these tastings, however given enough time we will invite someone from Dom Pérignon to present the champagnes.

For the first time in the history of the House, Dom Pérignon have released five consecutive vintages - 2002 to 2006 - all stunning and unique representations of their respective harvests. This is an amazing opportunity to taste six of the best vintages of Dom Pérignon, the most famous prestige cuvée in Champagne.

Included in the collection:
Dom Pérignon 2002: This one-of-a-kind vintage expresses all the power of grapes picked at the peak of their maturity, while going far beyond the character of the year, enhancing the natural richness and lending extra precision and depth. Widely recognised as the best Dom Pérignon on the market today.

Dom Pérignon 2003: A higher percentage of Pinot Noir grapes show through this broad and powerful palate. A vintage saved by the summer heat and described as "high in phenolics", this is a big champagne. Less elegant than 2002, but a great glass of Dom Pérignon.

Dom Pérignon 2004: A vintage that experienced very consistent weather throughout. Both the significant amount and the size of grape bunches contributed to a champagne that has an abundance of forward ripe fruit flavours and a refreshing balance of acidity.

Dom Pérignon 2005: The smallest harvest of Richard Geoffroy’s tenure with production 20-25% of the volume of 2004. The exceptional quality from selection ensures the 2005 is incredibly light: a champagne which evolves more on the palate as the flavours develop.

Dom Pérignon 2006: Beautifully balanced champagne that is already showing hallmarks of a superb vintage, with great richness and elegance. Similar weather conditions as 2002 and the longest harvest on record have created a wine full of complexity and creaminess.

Dom Pérignon 2009: 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.

“2009: 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.””

“2006: Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy is at ease, even exited about Champagne’s warming vintages for Dom Pérignon. He is not shy to demonstrate a broader scope of vintage expressions being increasingly comfortable at extremes. The 2006 is a bold and ripe Dom Pérignon full of exuberant tropical fruit and vanilla notes, topped up with the hallmark fragrant, gunpowder and toast character. It has a broad, rich mid-palate and a truly dry, salient finish with a phenolic touch of a ripe year. The fruitiness is polished and bright and there is fine, balanced freshness to it. This vintage is built to last, it is still tight but packed with fleshy fruitiness. 94 points today with potential for 96 points.”

“2005: Mild, seductively sweet, come-hither nose with a harmonious melange of freshly ground coffee, dark fruit, struck match, vanilla and exotic spices. Truly inviting and generous already, without shyness. The selection has been strict as there is at least to date no whiffs of botrytis troubling most champagnes of the vintage. Fully ripe fruit profile laudably in absence of any overripe characters. Unusually spicy with ginger and honey tones. Characteristically DP on the nose but less toasty than most vintages. But its most remarkable character is textural. The palate is super smooth and creamy, like fluffy cotton wool. Round and mellow with yeasty fullness and an energizing mineral bite at the fresh finish. A beautiful, unusually vinous and Chardonnay-dominant Dom Pérignon to enjoy today and in the mid-term. But act soon as this vintage was a tiny one with stocks counted to last only until late 2015.”

“2004: 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.”

“2002: Disgorged July 2009. RS 6 g/l. 51% Chardonnay, 49% Pinot Noir. From Moët Hennessy UK.
Tasted blind. Very alluring nose. Very complex. Heady nose. Rich and really rather beautiful. Very complete. Rich but not sweet. Love the reverberation. Long and throbbing. Rich but appetising.”

“1999: Served not blind immediately after 2002 through to 2006 (which were all served blind), so of course it seemed particularly beautiful. Pale creamy minerally savoury nose. Really lively and punchy. Some smokiness. A hint of honey. Very good bottle. ”
