The wine has a strong character and a powerful presence and is yet still supremely elegant. There is a tightness of bubble and lightness of touch that make Dom Perignon always such an utter joy to taste. Delicate floral and fruit flavours belie the Champagne’s depth.
What can you say? Some may be cynical of some of the glamour and glitz that surrounds Dom Perignon. However Richard Geoffroy, Dom Perignon’s Head Wine Maker, is simply superb at his game. Just about every vintage is awaited with bated breath by the wine industry and accolades for both him and his Champagnes are far too numerous to mention. If you are a long standing fan of his work and have tried the Blanc many times, then we highly recommend tasting some of the older vintages Richard holds back. Elsewhere on the site you can find an example of this in the form of Dom Perignon P2 and P3.
