The name of this wine originates from Benedictine abbot Pierre Pérignon, who is believed to have invented the champenoise method. The cunning work of cave chef Richard Geoffroy does the rest, ensuring the utmost refinement of taste and the extreme completeness of this excellent champagne. The Dom Perignon is a great champagne, synonymous with prestige, luxury and elegance. It undergoes an aging of at least 72 months on the lees in the bottle.
From a technical point of view, 2006 was the most demanding vintage. Dom Pérignon 2006 turned out, though, to become a champagne of rare finesse, lively, elegant, mature and wonderfully mineral, perfectly balanced in every component.
Colour: Pale yellow
Perlage: Flamboyant, very fine and very persistent bubbles.
Bouquet: The immediate impression is of the mildness of the pure, airy, bright bouquet. A floral, fruity pastel tone then unfolds and quickly darkens into candied fruit, ripe hay and toasted notes, along with hints of licorice.
Taste: The wine’s opulence – contained and succulent, round at heart – reveals itself on the palate. The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy. The whole eventually melts into an exquisite bitterness tinged with the briny taste of the sea.
