Expert Reviews

The 2000 Dom Perignon is a gorgeous, seductive wine that floats on the palate with remarkable grace. Toasty aromas meld into freshly cut flowers, apricots and pears, with sweet notes of mint and liquorice that linger on the long finish. This perfumed, inviting Dom Perignon is elegance personified, and in this vintage the wine fully merits its lofty reputation. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. Rating 94 - Antonio Galloni, In the Cellar # 0309 (Mar/2009)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Fresh, crystalline and sharp, the first nose reveals a unique vegetal, aquatic world, with hints of white pepper and gardenia. The wine’s maturity then makes a gentle appearance before exhaling peaty accents.

Palate

In the mouth, the attack is direct, a prelude to a lusty roundness that seems to curl up like a plant. The notes of anis and dried ginger glide over fruit skins (pear and mango), creating an effect that is more tactile than fleshy. The finale stretches out and then comes to rest, calm, mature and diffuse.

An ineffable charm has made itself felt, with no effect on the wine’s integrity.

Dom Pérignon is always a vintage wine.

The making of each vintage involves a delicate job of assemblage and adjustment – different each time – before the mysterious balance between Dom Pérignon’s white and black grapes (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir) can be reached.

This delicate exercise is full of risks. The assemblage of each Dom Pérignon vintage is a creative act in the most inspired and daring sense of the term. The extra effort that goes into its making enables each vintage to express its unique character while affirming (through its singularity) the timeless style of Dom Pérignon.
