Dom Pérignon is vintage only. Each vintage wine is created from the best grapes grown in one single year. To reinvent itself by interpreting the unique character of the seasons. To dare to declare the vintage only when the harvest meets its ideal. Such is the commitment of Dom Pérignon.
Dom Pérignon pairs beautifully with seafood and fish such as oysters, scallops, and sea bass; and meats such as veal, quail, and foiegras. It also pairs well with cheese such as parmesan, vegetables such as leeks,truffles, and mushrooms, and herbs and spices including ginger, cumin, and saffron.
Vintage Tasting Notes
On the nose: The immediate impression is of the mildness of the pure, airy, bright bouquet. A floral, fruity pastel tone then unfolds and quickly darkens into candied fruit, ripe hay and toasted notes, along with hints of licorice.
On the palate: The wine’s opulence –contained and succulent, round at heart –reveals itself in the mouth. The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy. “The whole eventually melts into an exquisite bitterness tinged with the briny taste of the sea.
