Dom Perignon Champagne Cuvee Vintage 2004

Dom Perignon Champagne Cuvee Vintage 750ML 2004       
Sku: 11402

Made exclusively from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes from Grand Cru vineyards and from the oldest vines at the Abbey of Hautvillers, champagne Dom Perignon is produced only in exceptional vintage years.

Tasting notes
On the nose, aromas of almond and powdered cocoa develop gradually into white fruit with hints of dried flowers. Classic toasted notes give a rounded finish and denote a fully realized maturity. On the palate, the wine instantly traces an astoundingly fine line between density and weightlessness. Its precision is extreme, tactile, dark and chiselled. The full taste lingers with the utmost elegance on a sappy, spicy note.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 95 points (Sep 25 2013)
There’s a sense of tension paired with grace in this deftly balanced version, with a rich and smoky vein of minerality underscoring the flavors of poached apple, honey, financier and sun-dried black cherry, showing hints of roasted almond, coffee liqueur and ground spice. Drink now through 2029.—A.N.

Wine maker notes
The 2004 vintage leaves its mark on the history of Dom Perignon for its ease and generosity. In contrast with the year before, vine growth was regular and progressed without incident, while the bunches were of a significant number and size. While the weather remained moderate for some time with the month of August particularly cool - the vintage was defined by the dry heat of the final weeks before the harvest. The harvest began on 24th September with the grapes displaying excellent ripeness and health.
