Medium gold color. Nice steady slow stream of tiny bubbles. Great nose that evolves with air during the night. Notes of lemon, orange, apricot, shells, and gravel stone. At first dry but later rich and powerful in the mouth. After a couple of hours this was all fruit forward. Very impressive wine. This bottle was in great shape and had many years of fun in front of it.

Almost Sauternes-like in color. A toasted nose with hazelnut, orange. A beautifully balanced palate with great depth and acidity. Lots of secondary flavors, brioche, a whiff of sherry, preserved lemon, a refreshing salinity and s lovely mellow sweetness. The mousse is fine and gentle but as a still wine this would be wonderful. A really good bottle of a great vintage.

Hint of roasted nuts and popcorn, on the nose; toasted brioche, toasted hazelnut, caramel popcorn, lemon curd and sea spray on the palate. Med plus to high acidity, med plus to long finish.

Had fried langoustine wrapped with perilla leaf and cream uni and nasturtium. Too buttery and toasty from my liking but with this dish, it’s a wonderful pairing!

The 2005 Dom Pérignon is just starting to enter its first plateau of maturity, as the aromas and flavors now show the complexity and nuance of a wine that has been in bottle for a number of years. Dried apricot, smoke, dried flowers, orange peel, almond and chamomile give the 2005 its signature flavor profile. More mature hazelnut and coffee notes aren’t too far away. Today, it is the wine’s density that is most surprising, but that should allow the wine to age gracefully for many years to come. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2018)

I imagine this will go up by a point or two in the next few years but it’s crazy young. That being said, it’s quite easy to sip. Creamy on the front palate...bubbles are so tiny it’s hard to pick them out. Toasted brioche, limestone, honeyed cashews show once this has had an hour+ to open. Dom always has such a nice mid-palate of candied fruit and toasted honeycomb. Give it time!
