Champagne | Brut
Dom Perignon Vintage 2009 Brut Champagne is exotic: its tactile thickness, its roundness, and its utterly unique depth of flavor. The icon of the house, it showcases perfect equilibrium, revealing the harmony that is so characteristic of Dom Perignon. On the nose, notes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest combine with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine. The wine opens up, with the whole complemented by woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche. On the palate, the fruit is majestic: ripe, fleshy, and profound. Beyond the richness and a certain voluptuousness is a strong impression of consistency that prevails. The wine's power is remarkably restrained. The various sensations – silky, salty, sappy, bitter, and briny – converge and persist. 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. It is the perfect embodiment of the Power of Creation – an act of creation that elevates the mind and enlightens the world. Dom Perignon Vintage 2009 Champagne is a wine that needs to be excited. It requires a framework, and it appeals to be stretched with contrasts. The champagne reaches out to the "vegetable" and "mineral" worlds, calling out by sea urchin carbonara with cardamom mousse. Dom Perignon 2009 works brilliantly when it has something to chew on: octopus marinated in Sicilian orange juice and roasted in butter. Enjoy!
