Champagne Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009

Champagne, FranceFrom the warm 2009 vintage, they felt this was ready to release before the tight 2008, and was the first released out of chronological sequence. Dom Perignon was first released in 1937. Dom Pérignon is made with many grapes from Grand Cru vineyards, but always includes grapes from the original plot in the Abbey of Hautvillers where the monk worked c. 1700, which is classified as 1er Cru. This is roughly equal parts pinot noir and chardonnay, fermented and through MLF in stainless, using their own yeast strains for both ferments. The 2009 is a powerhouse, growing in breadth and depth in the glass. Brown butter leads the savoury cut through layers of complexity. Salted brioche, dried apple, toasted hazelnuts, lemon pith all come together seamlessly. Great finesse within great power, drinking very well know but will suit well your cellar for the next decade easy.Tasted: 03 March 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 220.00 BCLS QC 250.00 SAQ ON 231.95 LCBO NS 224.00 Bishop's Cellar SK 215.25 NB 210.00 YK 213.00 Producer: Dom PerignonDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
