Champagne | Brut
Dom Perignon Vintage 2006 Brut Champagne is superlative, luminous, and glorious. Its original generosity - ample and tactile - is enhanced by a clear structure that gives it freshness and precision. It comes from a vibrant vintage with an early ripeness that brought a lot of aromatic maturities. The white-golden prestige Cuvee contains a bit more Chardonnay than Pinot Noir and opens with a deep and seductive, pretty accessible nose with intense yet fresh fruit aromas of pineapples, with peaches and tangerines. On the nose, the immediate impression is of the mildness of the pure, airy, bright bouquet. A floral, fruity pastel tone then unfolds and quickly darkens into candied fruit, ripe hay, and toasted notes, along with hints of licorice. On the palate, the wine's opulence – contained and succulent, round at heart – reveals itself on the palate. The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy. The whole eventually melts into an exquisite bitterness tinged with the briny taste of the sea. Lively and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, unusually aromatic and fruity Dom Perignon with a long and tension-filled expression. Dom Perignon only creates vintage wines; it is an absolute commitment. Only the best grapes of the most exceptional years are used, making each vintage distinct. Each vintage is a creation, singular and unique, that expresses both the character of the year and the character of Dom Perignon. Sicilian olive oil embraces the incomparable sensual note of Dom Perignon. When the wine makes contact with this low acidity, brilliance, and greasy substance, it reveals Dom Perignon Vintage 2006 Champagne's silky curves, seamless voluptuousness, and creaminess, brightened by vegetal notes. Enjoy!
