Champagne | Brut
Dom Perignon Vintage 2000 Brut Champagne is warm, with cooler-than-average temperatures in the month of July and frequent storms that brought significant amounts of rain and hail. The initial tastings revealed that the Chardonnay grapes harvested last were supple, ample, and complex. The Pinot Noir harvest was structured and offered great lengths. Fresh, crystalline, and sharp, the first nose unveils an unusual dimension, an aquatic vegetal world with secret touches of white pepper and gardenia. The wine reveals a light, gentle maturity before exhaling peaty scents. On the palate, the attack bursts forth, before maturing into a sensual fullness that winds around itself, like a tendril of foliage. Notes of licorice and dried ginger linger on the skin of the fruit (pear and mango), more textured than ripe. The finish gradually unfurls and then settles, smooth, mellow, all-encompassing. Dom Perignon only creates vintage wines; it is an absolute commitment. Only the best grapes of the most exceptional years are used, making each vintage distinct. Each vintage is a creation, singular and unique, that expresses both the character of the year and the character of Dom Perignon. Enjoy!
