2000 Dom Perignon Champagne

Champagne, FRANCE
$350. 00
$4200.00 Dozen
ABV: 12.5%
Closure: Cork

Excellent creamy white mousse. Very fine, delicate yet persistent bead. The nose is refined with both elegance and complexity evident. Aroma of biscuit and cashew over a light lees end note. Creamy palate texture without body ´fat´, yet with plenty of flavour and power. Exceptionally long palate of biscuit, cashew and spice with an aftertaste that lasts for minutes. An essay in refinement.

Other Reviews...
I am a no-holds-barred Dom addict, but I have to admit to being somewhat disappointed with the '99 vintage, which seemed altogether too delicate, verging on outright simplicity. I have no such reservations about the 2000 vintage, which has the Dom hallmark fluid line and feline grace encouraging the rapid consumption of glass after glass. Along the way you will find notes of nectarine, cherry, brioche and cream, which build into a gloriously long and even finish. It will continue to develop in bottle for decades to come.
