Dom Pérignon Brut 2009

Dom Prignon Brut 2009

Ref: A074909

The stretch of excellent weather condition of 2009 was unprecedented, and allowed us to explore new frontiers of grape ripeness in Champagne. The vintage offers a taste of the ripest and richest fruit, grapes in their prime, with the promise of the future wine's freshness and energy. The 2009 vintage brings a prodigious, sunny, bold and generous decade to a close.

ON THE NOSE
Notes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest combine with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine. The wine opens up, with the whole complemented by woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche.
ON THE PALATE
The fruit is majestic: ripe, fleshy and profound. Beyond the richness and a certain voluptuousness is a strong impression of consistency that prevails. The wine’s power is remarkably restrained. The various sensations – silky, salty, sappy, bitter and briny – converge and persist.

Dom Pérignon was a 17th century Benedictine monk who has gone down in history as the person who "invented" Champagne. His name was originally registered by Eugène Mercier. He sold the brand name to Moët & Chandon, which used it as the name for its prestige cuvée, which was first released in 1937.

The Abbey of Hautvillers was one of the oldest Bendictine monasteries in the world, established in the 7th century and the result of a dream that came to Saint Nivard. Ten centuries later, Dom Pierre Pérignon disvcovered a way of putting bubbles into wine and the extraordinary quality of the wine he produced in the secrecy and religious fervour of the Abbey makes him the spiritual father of champagne and one of the greatest visionaries of modern wine-making (he wasn't bad a marketing his product either).

Today Moet & Chandon painstakingly select Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from the choicest vineyard plots which have the very best soils and perfect exposure. They only make Dom Pérignon in the best harvests and thereafter the wine rests on its lees during a long and slow ageing.

Each vintage shows a different side to Dom Pérignon, reflecting an assemblage that is a unique creation of the wine maker Richard Geoffroy. In its constant quest for the ultimate balance between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the Dom Pérignon style traces, vintage after vintage, a complex structure made up of aroma and sensations, silky smooth, light as air and full of sensuality.
