Wine Description

The bouquet spirals through a light-filled, floral softness to the gritty minerality that epitomises Dom Perignon, evocative of candied fruit, plant life and exquisite camphor leaf freshness, and finally plunges into darkness, spices and licorice root. On the palate, the wine still has a physical presence. It is striking and demading, tactile and vibrant rather than aromatic. It is built on rhythm and rupture more than harmony. After an initial cloud of stofness, we hit a mineralised verticality that gradually opens out to suggest a bitter, iodised and saline nobility.

Tasting Note

@Capella - more robust than 2000 and 2002. still considered elegant nonetheless and gives a strong lingering impression of fruits and nose @Makepeace - surprisingly lighter and less impact. too subtle. @imperial Ngee ann 06/14. maturing noticeably and nicely. decent drink now.
