(From «nv» Vintage) This wine is from France, Champagne region. Made exclusively from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes from Grand Cru vineyards and from the oldest vines at the Abbey of Hautvillers, champagne Dom Perignon is produced only in exceptional vintage years.
The 2004 vintage leaves its mark on the history of Dom Perignon for its ease and generosity. In contrast with the year before, vine growth was regular and progressed without incident, while the bunches were of a significant number and size. While the weather remained moderate for some time with the month of August particularly cool - the vintage was defined by the dry heat of the final weeks before the harvest. The harvest began on 24th September with the grapes displaying excellent ripeness and health.
terrible! my husband bought this for my 40th bday. it was our first experience w/dom perignon and will be our last. maybe we just got a bad bottle? tasted like drinking watered-down martinelli's cider out of an empty campbells soup can. sour, stanky after taste. want our $225 back.
Refreshing but not as sweet as I typically enjoy
Pales next to Krug MV. Let's see if it improves.
Same taste as other Dom. High then low.
Bought for mogilnicki and Jo
For a special event
Good, too pricey.
