The energy of an ample and sappy Champagne in an exceptional vintage

The property
Dom Perignon champagne owes its name to the famous monk of the Abbey of Hautvillers in 1668, Pierre Perignon, also known as Dom Perignon. According to legend, it was Pierre Perignon who first discovered what is known today as the Champagne method. It is said that he taught this method in 1669 to the Benedictine Thierry Ruinart, who founded the very first Champagne House (Ruinart) in 1729. On January 1, 2019, Vincent Chaperon succeeded Richard Geoffroy as Cellar Master at Dom Pérignon.

The wine
In essence, Dom Pérignon only exists as a vintage champagne. The Dom Pérignon Vintage champagne is made from an extremely rigorous selection of the best grapes. Depending on the quality of the fruit, Dom Pérignon chooses whether or not to declare each vintage. Acquiring great complexity and harmony as it ages, Dom Pérignon Vintage champagne is revealed only after more than 8 years of development and rest in the cellar.

The vintage
The vintage with the lowest temperatures since 1996, 2010 was characterized by a cold winter and spring. The summer was hot and dry until mid-August, which brought two intense days of rain. Recalling 1995, the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2010 reveals itself to be a vintage of balance between contrasts.

The tasting
At the tasting, the Dom Pérignon 2010 presents an intense aromatic bouquet marked by notes of tropical fruits. Notes of mango, melon and pineapple wrap the nose. Then, citrus notes like tangerine and orange zest appear. Swirling the glass reveals the personality of the wine through floral notes of peony and lilac. On the palate, this champagne seduces with its ample and sappy texture, which fills the mouth with a tactile touch. A champagne of great precision and generosity, the Dom Perignon 2010 unfolds slowly, revealing itself gradually before tightening on the finish, which offers spicy and peppery notes. The finish is very persistent, marked by saline notes.
