“Champagne Dom Perignon Brut Coffret 2009
Grapes: 55% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir
The Dom Pérignon was, according to the British scholar Laurence Venn, the first champagne defined prestige. The first vintage dates back to 1921, but the product was released and sold to the public only in 1936, after the Great Depression. The Dom Perignon is produced only during the best years of harvest, and the grapes used to produce it comes from the harvest of that year, unlike other types of champagne. The complex aromas characterize the result of long evolution in the bottle. The blond tobacco and licorice tones blend with those roasted coffee, hazelnut. The aromas of honey, ripe fruit, candied blend perfectly with the background.
Warm, full, enveloping, full and fresh fruity tones. It has a very long finish, surprising, very pleasant to the palate.
The year 2009 leaves its mark on the history of Dom Pérignon for its ease and generosity. In contrast to the previous year, the growth of the vine was regular and progressed without incident, while the grapes were a number of material size. While the weather remained moderate for some time with the month of particularly cool August - the harvest has been defined by the dry heat of the last week before the harvest. The harvest began on September 24 with grapes showing excellent ripeness and health.
The vinification takes place according to the Classical Method, with secondary fermentation in the bottle. Then the wine is aged on the lees for about 72 months.
