- ABV 12.5%
- Closure: Cork
The white creamy mousse shows good hold to reveal a pale straw pale gold base wine colour with an exceptionally fine bead that shows great persistence. Aromas of citrus and roasted almond like notes emerge from the glass with yeast lees, toastiness, pear and brioche also apparent. Bright and fresh with a distinct toastiness the palate also features flavours of almonds, citrus, oxidised characters, yeast lees and an oily brioche like quality. Crisp dry finish. Long aftertaste of toast, almond, oily brioche and yeast lees.
Cellar 4-5 years.
I believe that the 2005 DP is the best since 2002, which remains the best recent vintage and is probably only eclipsed by the amazing 100-point 1996. The 2005 is a full-bodied DP with so much richness and loads of ripe fruit such as pineapple and papaya. It has a wonderful, creamy texture and a long and intense finish. It’s a Champagne that fully satisfies but at the same time challenges you with its strength, depth and persistence on the palate.
The 2005 Dom Pérignon is lifted and precise throughout, with a classy, understated personality to match. Pear, apple, mint and white flowers are laced together in a finely-knit fabric of pure class. Two thousand five was a challenging vintage because of rot issues, especially in Pinot Noir. As a result, the 2005 Dom Pérignon is more than 60% Chardonnay, which is quite unusual. Soft, and open-knit, the 2005 is the most complete Dom Pérignon for drinking now among recent vintages. I suspect the 2005 will also have a shorter arc of life next to some of the truly epic wines that surround it. Drink 2015-2030.
