A fine satiny mousse sits over a pale straw coloured base that has pale gold tinged edges and is finely threaded by a very persistent bead of nibble bubbles. Pronounced citrus and oily toast aromas are to the fore with some pear, roasted almond and yeast lees notes ensuing. Finessed and elegant, mouth watering flavours of pear, citrus and baked bread dance vibrantly across the palate underscored by yeast lees, almond and subtle dried honey characters. Creamy tinged texture finishing dry with chalk tinged acidity and a long buttered toast like aftertaste.
Drink over the next 10-15 years.

Other Reviews….
A driven and serious DP with aromas of chalk, biscuits, apricot stones and lemons. Some spice and dried flowers, too. So sleek and sophisticated. Elegant. Yet, it’s long and powerful, with a sharp minerality. Tight and precise. Reminds me of bottles from the 1980s, such as 1988. It really takes off. Disgorged October 2021. Drinkable on release in January 2023, but better in a couple of years. A DP for the cellar.

Disgorged in October 2022, the 2013 Dom Pérignon is a charming and elegant vintage for this cuvée. It reveals complex aromas of buttery pastry, spices, citrus oil, almonds, honey and, with aeration, a touch of smoke. The palate is medium to full-bodied, perfectly balanced, with a chiseled and tightly wound profile. The long, cool growing season has brought freshness and a delicate earthy note to the finish. Drink 2023-2043.

Yohan Castaing – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate

There’s no such thing as a non-vintage Dom, just 6 million or so bottles for every vintage released. The 2013 vintage weather was a game of ping pong – crop losses of every kind slashed yields but the reduced crop ripened perfectly. This wine has Dom Perignon’s typical airy elegance, length and balance.
