Synonymous with celebration, the legendary Champagne region produces the world’s favourite sparkling wines from varying blends of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. In wine terms the Champagne region is very far north and its cool climate means it is hard to get grapes to ripen fully. The resulting high acidity is one of the reasons that it is so well suited to sparkling wine production.
The bouquet shows floral aromas with overtones of honey, peach and apricot, which lead onto a medium-bodied palate where complex biscuity notes and a fine bead lead onto a persistent and elegant finish.

“The 2009 Dom Pérignon is a gorgeous, totally seductive Champagne that will drink well right out of the gate ... 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.” Antonio Galloni MW
