Dom Perignon Champagne 2012
The most iconic Champagne in the World – intense, full-bodied, hedonistic. The superb bouquet wafts from the glass in a mix of apple, peach, a touch of orange zest, salty minerality, fruit skin, a touch of iodine and a gently floral topnote.
A powerful nose opens with grilled nuts, richness, hazelnut praline, and a smoky richness. There is something inherently generous, savoury, bold and rich. It expresses itself in the salty body with its smouldering hints. The bright streak of zesty lemon only serves to accentuate the richness. The finish is wonderfully long, salty, savoury and generous. A superb wine.

About The Brand
In the 17th century, the monk Dom Pierre Perignon nurtured an ambition to create “the best wine in the world”. This bold and visionary mind even went as far as to earn himself a place at the table of the Sun King, who was won over by the quality of his wine. Three centuries later, Dom Perignon perpetuates this exceptional artisan’s vision and work, and he is now considered to be the spiritual father of Champagne. Dom Perignon vintages are produced using the best grapes on the estate. Each one is a unique creation with a style and an identity which are unique to its vintage: it is down to the Chef de Cave to decide if the vintage will be declared.
This vision is tangible through the subtle balance that characterizes the House Champagnes – an alliance of ripeness, vibrancy, lightness and intensity – giving the wine the potential to age with suppleness and elegance. Dom Perignon is only available as a vintage. Only the best grapes are selected. Each vintage is unique and reinterprets the unique character of the seasons. Dom Perignon reinvents itself with each vintage, always taking risks. Even to the point of not declaring a vintage.
