Dom Pérignon Blanc 2004
Founded in 1668 by Pierre Perignonat the Abbey of Hautvilliersand served at the table of Louis XIV, his wine was an instant hit with the French aristocracy and remained its favorite for two centuries.
On the nose, aromas of almond and powdered cocoa develop gradually into white fruit with hints of dried flowers. Classic toasted notes give a rounded finish and denote a fully realized maturity. On the palate, the wine instantly traces an astoundingly fine line between density and weightlessness. Its precision is extreme, tactile, dark and chiselled. The full taste lingers with the utmost elegance on a sappy, spicy note.
Dom Pérignon Rosë 2003
The 2003 vintage is one of superlatives: a year like no other, defined by extremes. The vineyard was first touched by severe spring frosts and then by an unparalleled heat wave. The vintage of a perfectly ripe and healthy small harvest, is thus the most precocious since 1822.
The nose incites a burst of richness and complexity. Ripe fruit at first, then fig and strawberry as the wine breathes and grows, revealing guava, violet and vanilla. The palate is concentrated and remarkably well-defined. The fullness is structured, rich. The silky, spicy material very gradually disappears into a mineral, iodine, salty finish note.
Dom Pérignon P2
Dom Pérignon P2 is the Second Plénitude of Dom Pérignon, the result of over 16 years of elaboration. The wine is intense, vibrant and precise. THE WINE’S ENERGY IS AT ITS PEAK.
On the nose, after a short breathing period, the wine has an intense, full and radiant bouquet, with notes of honeysuckle, orange colored fruits, toasted almonds and hints of iodine sensations. On the palate, the creamy chewiness characterizing the vintage is channeled in a direction that is edgy yet embracing, with a wave of aromatic persistence. The finish – smoky, biting and full of energy – balances it all out.
