I am a no-holds-barred Dom addict, but I have to admit to being somewhat disappointed with the '99 vintage, which seemed altogether too delicate, verging on outright simplicity. I have no such reservations about the 2000 vintage, which has the Dom hallmark fluid line and feline grace encouraging the rapid consumption of glass after glass. Along the way you will find notes of nectarine, cherry, brioche and cream, which build into a gloriously long and even finish. It will continue to develop in bottle for decades to come.
This is a classic Dom Perignon vintage. It's big and fruity initially, a mouthful of ripeness. Then the texture and structure of this dense wine come through. It's as much wine as Champagne, rich, the apple and fresh pear flavors vying with yeasty and a tense crispness. Worth aging, it will be even better in 3-4 years.
"If Dom Pérignon is the Porsche 911 Carrera of the wine world, then DP Rosé is the 911 Turbo"
-Jay McInerney, The Wall Street Journal
Dom Perignon, a Benedictine monk, was an innovative cellar master and winemaker in the seventeenth-century, whose unique techniques advanced the production and quality of Champagne. His obsession with consistency, precision and discipline helped him master the stages of production.
Perignon and his colleagues laid out essential foundations for the ‘champenoise’ method of critical varietals to create a second fermentation in the bottle that adds the distinct 'bubbliness' to Champagne. Now a brand of Champagne house Moët & Chandon, Dom Perignon continues to make vintage-only wines priding themselves by releasing Champagne in only optimal years.
