Wine Description

(1998 Vintage) "The Dom Pérignon Vintage 1998 has a special way of holding its final note on and on. It's as if it doesn't want to let go. It's surprising, unique and magnicent."Richard Geoffroy, Chef de Cave Color:Pale yellow with golden highlights. On the nose: The initial notes of fresh almond and grapefruit gradually lead into cashew nut and spices complemented by lightly toasted brioche. On the palate:Satiny texture unfurls on the palate, embracing and caressing it. Momentary weightlessness with a vibr...

    샴페인잔에서 부르고뉴잔으로 옮겨 담고 5분후 폭발적인 향이 올라옴. 많이 마셔본 00,03과는 완전히 다른 복합적이고 프레쉬한 꽃향기와 아카시아향이 잔 전체에 감돌아 나옴 1시간후에는 향은 잦아들고 맛도 부드러워져 지속성은 떨어지나 샴페인의 특성상 당연한 것 같고 부르고뉴잔에 반드시 마셔야될 샴페인임 훌륭

    (2009 Vintage) The 2009 Dom Pérignon is a gorgeous, totally seductive Champagne that will drink well right out of the gate. Medium in body and unusually open-knit at this stage, the 2009 is one of the most accessible young Dom Pérignons I can remember tasting. It is an excellent choice to drink while waiting for the release of the stellar 2008 and some recent vintages that remain very young, including the 2006. Despite the warm, ripe personality of the 2009 Dom Pérignon is quite gracious, but there is plenty of depth underpinning the fruit. With each successive tasting, the 2009 seems to have gained more power and breadth, especially on the finish. Above all else, the 2009 is decidedly restrained for a warm, radiant vintage. It is not as overtly flamboyant as the 2002 nor as phenolically intense as years like 2003 and 2006. Instead, the 2009 is a beautifully balanced Champagne, with all of its elements in the right place.

    (2009 Vintage) This is a DP that shows the ripeness of the 2009 vintage yet remains full of energy. Gorgeous aromas of cream, apple, mango, honeysuckle, and chalk follow through to a full body and super fine, tight texture. Dense and agile. Vinous. It’s like a top grand cru white Burgundy. Think Batard-Montrachet. More depth than the 2006.

    (1993 Vintage) Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 99, November/December 2001. ($120) Understated, pure aromas of musky stone, orange, smoke and truffle. Full, ripe and harmonious; not a huge or superconcentrated wine but quite subtle and fine, with brisk, juicy flavors of orange and minerals. Lingering, ripe finish.
