Champagne Dom Pérignon
Vintage 2012

Dom Pérignon creates only Vintage Champagnes, from the best grapes selected in a single vintage. Dom Pérignon never stops reinventing itself in order to best interpret the unique character of each vintage. Refusing to compromise and renouncing the creation of the Vintage Champagne when grapes is not up to scratch, the maison's wine, after an elaboration of at least eight years, achieves a perfect balance, the finest promise of the House. This is Dom Pérignon Vintage, the Plénitude of Harmony.

DOM PÉRIGNON VINTAGE 2012

The 2012 vintage is full of paradoxes as concerns pure oenology; it gave birth to a great wine that has overcome countless challenges. Nature showed its unpredictable and implacable face, with a series of climatic events affecting the vineyards: winter and spring frosts, torrential rains, hailstorms and waves of intense cold while the vines were budding, as well as strong summer heatwaves. Warm, dry weather dispelled any worries about the grapes being healthy and encouraged the grapes to ripen. The harvest was carried out between 10 and 26 September, depending on the plots. Tasting the grapes revealed a magnificent promise, a balanced tension between freshness and generosity. 

Dom Pérignon Vintage 2012 is rich and varied to the nose, combining flowers and fruit, followed by vegetal and mineral notes. The bouquet is tactile, a discreet invitation to follow the powdery trail of white flowers and sweet apricot, culminanting into the freshness of rhubarb and mint, and the minerality of ash. Hints of white pepper. Energy dominates the palate. After a pleasant opening, the wine quickly becomes vibrant and then explodes: the effervescence bursts through, the sensation is tonic. The finish, which converges on acidic and bitter notes, brings a penetrating tension, marked by ginger, tobacco and toasted aromas.
