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.
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.
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 continues to perpetuate its legendary founder's visionary approach: the constant reinvention of the exceptional. Today, this vision of true luxury is in the hands of the Chef de Cave, Richard Geoffroy. Dom Pérignon is made only in exceptional vintage years from two grape varieties from the Champagne region, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, picked from the very best 'crus' among the oldest and best sites of the region.
