2005 Dom Perignon

The 2005 Dom Perignon has a very tough act to follow in the quite brilliant 2004 and 2002. This is one of the smallest releases of Dom Perignon ever made, though after a strict selection, Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy decided that, whilst there wasn’t much of it in terms of quantity, in terms of quality it more than made the cut. We opened a bottle in the office last week, and it is very impressive. Moreover it is ready to go now. For summer spraying or summer drinking of the very highest quality this will do the trick and more.

"The 2005 Dom Pérignon opens with the classic Dom Pérignon bouquet. Warm toasty notes meld into expressive fruit in a supple, silky Champagne endowed with stunning depth, nuance and complexity. Sweet floral notes add lift as the wine opens up in the glass. Overall, the 2005 is a relatively delicate, gracious DP, but what it lacks in depth it more than makes up with persistence and its open, totally inviting personality. Today it's hard to see the 2005 making old bones, but it is a gorgeous wine to drink while the 2004 ages. In 2005, the release is scheduled to last about six months, which means production is down around 50% over normal levels. All I can say is the 2005 is fabulous, especially in a vintage that required considerable sorting to eliminate rampant rot in the Pinots."



"This has a lovely pale yellow colour with flashes of green – like young Chablis. The mousse is fine and consistent, and the nose is impressive: limey, steely and precise. There is a touch of toasted Brioche underneath the citrus. In the mouth this is ready to go – drink it tonight. Still steely, and still very precise, there is a structure that is reminiscent of the brilliant 2004 though less tightly wound and less compact. This is rather like very clean, very focussed white Burgundy with a hint of bubbles. Very good and, coming back to it, there is a creaminess developing. Lovely for drinking now."
