Excellent creamy white mousse which once dissipated reveals a pale straw coloured base wine with pale gold edges. The exceptionally fine bead showing great persistence. The nose displays great complexity and refinement with aromas of oily toast characters, baked bread, roasted almonds, yeast lees and citrus arising from the glass. The palate has an understated richness yet is very graceful and refined featuring flavours of citrus, oily toast like characters, almonds and of course yeast lees. Finishes dry and fresh with bracing acidity and a slight creaminess about the mouthfeel. Superb length with a long aftertaste of oily toast characters, citrus, almonds and yeast lees.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
The 2006 Dom Pérignon is a beautifully balanced, harmonious Dom Pérignon that strikes an incredibly appealing stylistic middle ground. Rich, voluptuous and creamy, the 2006 shows off fabulous intensity in a style that brings together the ripeness of 2002 with the greater sense of verve and overall freshness that is such a signature of the 2004. Bass notes and a feeling of phenolic grip on the finish recall the 2003, as the Pinot Noir is particularly expressive today. After an irregular summer that saw elevated temperatures in July followed by cooler, damp conditions in August, more favorable weather returned in September, pushing maturation ahead and leading to a long, protracted harvest. The 2006 falls into the family of riper, more voluptuous Dom Pérignons, but without veering into the level of opulence seen in vintages such as 2002. Drink 2016-2046.
Most vintages of Dom are new-born when first released, forcing you to go in search of the wine to be. No such effort is required here: the fresh, lifted florals, brioche and almonds burst from the glass from the first sniff. Despite its eloquence, the key words remain delicate, detailed and freshness, the vibrancy of the palate running as a clear stream from start to finish.
