At the Dom Perignon dinner last Friday night. David Cross from Moët Hennessy who presented on the night said that this was the first showing of the 2012 in Australia. More intensity and power than the 2010. David thought the 2012 will be the better wine (a definite future P2 star) but the 2010 the better wine to drink now. Almost like a very good white burgundy with a little bubble.

At the Dom Perignon dinner last Friday night. The first of the Doms - 54% Chardonnay, 46% Pinot Noir, Dosage 5G/l. Quite full bodied and delicious with great concentration and intensity on nose and palate with Lemon and a touch of Cumquat. Still with the requisite tension to keep things exciting.

A gorgeous bottle. Resolved with soft edges and delicious secondary notes but still vibrant and balanced. Really complete and delicious and a a great example of perfectly agreed champagne.

Tiny amount of bubbles. Tawny colored. Dried apricot, butterscotch, tea, biscuits. Nice tension and some mellowed acidity. Showing its age but classy.

Fresh and pretty. Oyster shells and slate on the nose. Livid and lively but a little hollow in the middle compared to the ‘96 alongside.

Delicious. Soft and open. Lots of secondary flavors but still fresh with a good mousse. Good length too, but not as thrilling as some bottles I’ve had. This one on the start of the downslope but a gorgeous wine.

Pretty crummy photo but this is 96 dom perignon. A beautiful example of this house, the vintage and a well stored wine. Fine bubbles with lots of persistence. Still young. Always delicious. What a wine!

The 2008 Dom Pérignon is a huge, powerful Champagne and also clearly one of the wines of the vintage. This is one of the most reticent bottles I have tasted. So much so that I am thinking about holding off opening any more bottles! The 2008 has always offered a striking interplay of fruit and structure. Today, the richness of the fruit is especially evident. Readers who own the 2008 should be thrilled, but patience is a must. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2021)

Very bright and dynamic. Fresh lime, slate, sizzling acidity. Light and bright.

Lovely balance. Intense But focused. A slightly sour note in the end of the palate?
