Dom Pérignon - An Alliance of Ripeness, Vibrancy, Lightness and Intensity

You have certainly heard of Dom Pérignon, but have you ever personally popped a bottle? A glass of the finest vintage Dom sipped out of a crystal glass provides such a luxurious and hedonistic experience for your nose and taste buds, that you will never forget the moment.

Dom Pérignon Champagne History

Dom Pérignon is made by Moët & Chandon, a venerable Champagne house that produces Dom as one of its prestige cuvée. The Dom champagne originates from the 17th century and got its name by the monk Dom Pierre Pérignon. 

Dom Pierre Pérignon came from a family of eight children in the Champagne region of France. Pérignon’s family owned a few vineyards, so he was familiarized with the process of winemaking. Pérignon lived in the Abbey of Hautvillers, and was also a cellar master. Thanks to his hard work, the abbey doubled its vineyard size. Pérignon’s religious beliefs and philosophy of life ignited his dreams of creating “the best wine in the world.” today known as the famous Dom Pérignon!

While this remarkable monk didn’t invent the famous Dom wines (as the myth suggests), Pérignon made essential improvements to the method of producing champagne wines. The Abbey of Hautvillers, the monastery where Pérignon lived and spent most of his life is today the prestigious Moet & Chandon champagne house.

Dom Pérignon Style

The process of creating Dom wines still remains a mystery, but we know that Dom Pérignon is made from grapes sourced from Grand Cru vineyards of Champagne (both from the Côte des Blancs and sub-regions of Montagne de Reims), and the First Growth sites of Hautvillers.

The Dom champagne is always a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. While the percentages in Dom bottles change from vintage to vintage, the wine is always based on these two key types of grapes, typically between 50/50 and 60/40 favoring either Pinot Noir or Chardonnay. Making white wine from red grapes and blending the grapes is what makes a Dom champagne so superior and unique.

Dom Pérignon Vintages

Dom Pérignon is always a vintage champagne that must age for a minimum of 7 years in a bottle before release. This time-aging on lees gives the wine complexity and richness. The vintage Dom is a truly outstanding champagne, featuring intense flavors of fruit, oak, and leesy notes from its years of aging in a bottle. The overall balance of ripeness, vibrancy, and lightness, the perfect concentration of different textures, plus the aromatic intensity, make for a striking tasting experience that will excite and pull out all your senses in different directions.

How the Best Dom Perignon Vintages Develop?

Once you’re finished with your drink, and the guests have left, it’s incredibly easy to slip into deep, intense contemplation. The question that hovers above a Dom wine is always the same – “How was this perfection achieved?”

The answer is almost always different, however, and it depends on a staggering amount of factors. In nearly all cases, you can spot very clear differences between different vintages of the same Dom Pérignon. The differences between Dom vintages can occur due to that year’s weather conditions, geological differences between one vineyard and another, the ever-changing and innovative methods used to nurture and collect grapes, and so much more.

2008 Dom Pérignon Vintage vs. 2006 Dom Pérignon Vintage

For example, in 2008, the weather wasn’t exactly what you’d call ideal for making a Dom champagne, with grey, overcast skies, and noticeably less heat. However, in a miraculous turn of events, the weather cleared up right before harvest took place, bringing healthy north-eastern winds and helping the winemakers deliver what is considered one of Dom Pérignon’s strongest recent performances.

The 2008 Dom champagne boasts a stunning, luminous aromatic bouquet, with a complex and compelling combination of stone fruit, zesty citrus, and delicate, lush white flowers. As the 2008 Dom unfolds in your glass, the aromatics turn towards a cozy, warm spectrum, featuring notes of spice and roasted wood. Once it reaches the palate, the wine captivates your mouth and mind with a well-balanced, beautifully-structured drinking experience, where most of the show is stolen by the potent, pronounced fruit and a slender, minimalistic purity. The finish is delightful and expansive, demonstrating playful energy that lures you back in for another sip.

Compare that to the 2006 Dom champagne vintage, whose incredibly hot and dry climate conditions weren’t working in the grapevines’ best interest. During the initial period of champagne aging, the 2006 Dom was almost entirely characterized by a strong, ripe fruit presence, without too much character and nuance to speak of. Even from those conditions, the 2006 Dom champagne came out like a blockbuster and continues to capture the hearts and minds of wine lovers around the world today.

On the nose, the 2006 Dom champagne demonstrates exceptional purity, and a light, airy brightness, like a fragrant spring breeze in the countryside. The wonderful floral throughline is complemented perfectly by a warm, almost nostalgic essence of candied fruit, hay, and toasted aromatics. On the palate, the succulent, seductive nature of the Dom Pérignon is brought to the forefront, with stunning fruity potency and incredibly silky textures. As you approach the finish, a slightly bitter dose of saline, oceanic presence puts a spell on your mind, as though you were enjoying an expansive, vast ocean view from the top of a cliff.

Dom Pérignon - A Pure Delight Both for Collectors and Champagne Enthusiasts

Those among us with the privilege of being able to collect wines know that a wonderful wine shines brightest when you share it with the people you love the most. A stunning bottle of top-quality Dom Perignon is not only a great conversation piece, but a way to experience cultural enlightenment, and a connection to a more wholesome, natural lifestyle, the kind we dream about when we imagine mountain cottages and countryside mansions.

Each Dom Pérignon bottle is like a snapshot of its motherland and the year of its birth. It’s not too difficult to notice unique aspects of the region’s terroir or imagine the amount of hard work and dedication it took to create such a flawless elixir.

Every second spent drinking a bottle of Dom opens a new window into a different time, and this nostalgia can be quite infectious when combined with a group of beloved guests.

People who love fine cuisine often find themselves enjoying a tasteful wine pairing to go along with said food. Great wines reward creativity and culinary experience, so don’t be shy to combine a Dom champagne with a variety of food pairings.

For starters, we recommend pairing a lovely Dom champagne with a wide variety of fine cheeses, as well as olive oil and hearty meat-based dishes. Share a taste of wine history with the ones that matter the most.

1990 moet chandon dom perignon Champagne

This is really incredible with orange peel, dried pineapple and flan. Exotic. Full body, round and savory. Crazy character at the finish of cooked pineapple and tart tartine. Gorgeous; can’t believe it. James Suckling | 99 JSThe profoundly rich 1990 Dom Perignon is a creamy-textured, full styled offering that loses none of its elegance in spite of its flavor authority. It will improve for 5-10 years, and appears capable of surpassing the fabulous 1985 and 1982. It seems obvious that the quality of the 1990 Champagne vintage is going to be remarkable, and the world-wide demand will be unprecedented. The message - buy them now!Robert Parker | 96 RP(Moët & Chandon Brut - Dom Perignon (magnum) Champagne/Sparkling) This is a wine that I know extremely well from 750 ml and it’s one that is beginning to tire though I hasten to point out that it’s still enjoyable and just beginning to show signs of fatigue. However there are no such concerns with the same wine from magnum that remains magnificently fresh and while it’s clear that the aromas are mature, that’s not at all the same thing as describing the yeasty and baked apple suffused nose as tiring. There is equally good depth and vibrancy to the beautifully delineated flavors that are supported by a fine and firm mousse that allows the texture of a well-aged Dom to be easily appreciated. For my taste this has arrived at its peak though note well that it should easily be capable of effortlessly holding for years to come. (Drink starting 2015).Burghound | 95 BHPale color. Youthful aromas of lemon, quince, pear, toast, spice, chalk and red berries. Big, sweet and seamless, if a bit clenched in the early going. A powerful, very young wine whose fruit builds slowly in the mouth and explodes on the finish. A charry note contributes to its complexity. Possesses amazing depth of fruit, but the high quality of this wine can most easily be seen today on the extraordinary finish. May ultimately merit a 95+ rating.Vinous Media | 93+ VM(Dom Pérignon Brut (Moët et Chandon)) I had loved this vintage of Dom Pérignon well enough out of the blocks to buy a case for long-term cellaring, and though the wine has been thoroughly enjoyable over the years, it seems to me that it is now time to drink it up in regular-sized bottle, as it has matured at a fairly brisk pace, and like a lot of 1990 Champagnes, it is already probably starting to look over the far side of its plateau. The wine today is already showing a bit oxidative in style, but with plenty of complexity and still good structure for current consumption, but it certainly seems likely to start to slide in the coming years. The bouquet is a mature blend of toasted nuts, apple, peach, a bit of honey, lovely, chalky soil tones and incipient notes of new leather in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still reasonably crisp, with fine focus, plenty of mid-palate stuffing, sound mousse and very good length and grip on the gently honeyed and fairly advanced finish. Given that other examples from the 1990 vintage, such as Clos des Goisses and Comtes de Champagne, are decidedly fresher than this wine, I would term this a bit of a disappointment, though this seems quite correct for the general vintage’s stage of evolution today and the wine remains quite tasty in its slightly decrepit style. I should note that there are reports of quite a bit of bottle variation with the 1990 Dom Pérignon, so perhaps there are still far better examples out there. However, I wish I had bought the 1985, rather than the 1990 for my own cellar! Drink up in regular-sized formats. (Drink between 2014-2020)John Gilman | 90 JG

2002 moet chandon dom perignon rose (dark jewel metal labels) Champagne

Unfortunately there is only one new release from Dom Perignon on the market, but what a wine it is! The 2002 Brut Rose explodes from the glass with endless layers of huge, voluptuous fruit, A big, full-bodied wine, the 2002 is probably the most overly vinous, intense Rose ever made by long-time Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy. Layers of cool, insistent minerality balance the fruit beautifully on the crystalline, vivid finish. The 2002 will be nearly impossible to resist young, but take my word for it; the wine is extremely closed right now. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2032.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 98 RPThe 2002 Dom Pérignon Rosé is a tremendous example of this vintage at its very best. A Champagne of vertical thrust and intensity, the 2002 is rich, opulent and hedonistic from the very first taste. Readers should expect a Rosé built on a huge core of fruit. Rose petal, passion fruit and exotic flowers add shades of dimension to the wine’s decidedly flamboyant personality. What a wine!Vinous Media | 98 VMExtraordinarily powerful yet astonishingly beautifully constructed, the 2002 rosé is subtly different to its siblings, yet still seamless of architecture and impressive of length. Beyond the herbs and mellow autumnal berries there’s salinity at the back of the mouth. It’s perhaps a little unexpected from a rosé, but undeniably adds further layers to an already multi-faceted persona. Youthful yet wise beyond its years, this makes a wonderful pairing with the final wine, the 1990 P2 rosé. Drink with the most lavish crustacean dishes. Served from magnum.

2004 moet chandon dom perignon plentitude p2 Champagne

The 2004 Dom Pérignon P2 is precise and wonderfully refined, just like the first release. There’s a hint of reduction from extended time on the cork as well as a feeling of effusiveness that is so appealing. Readers will find a super-classic DP. Dried flowers, brioche, apricot preserves, sage, mint and chamomile are seamless in the glass. The 2004 can be enjoyed now or cellared for another decade plus. Some editions of the P2 series have been pretty austere in the early going; the 2004 is not among them.Vinous Media | 97 VMMandarin orange, ripe cherry, raspberry and apricot fruit notes offer an exuberant burst of flavor at the entry point of this otherwise refined and subtle Champagne. The expressive fruit is joined on the lacy mousse by hints of toast, pastry cream and Earl Grey tea leaf, with an underpinning of minerally chalk and smoke. Lithe and graceful on the palate, but with a dancer’s sense of restrained power. Drink now through 2037.Wine Spectator | 97 WSThe 2004 Champagne Plentitudes 2 is a stark contrast to the 2003 vintage and offers a more compact and linear expression, with energetic tension and persistence. Composed of 38% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Noir, the nose is flush with wet stone reminiscent of great Chablis, along with white nectarine and white flowers. The palate runs seamless with a super-fine mousse, vibrant peach orchard fruit, and a silky mineral texture. This may well prove to be the longer-lived of the two wines. Drink 2024-2044.Jeb Dunnuck | 97+ JDStructured, tight and mineral with so much tension. White grapefruit, lemon rind, dried apple, seashell, iodine, biscuit and blanched almond. Vibrant. Fantastic focus and verticality. Disgorged July 2021. Will be released October 2022. Drink on release or hold.James Suckling | 97 JSP2 is the acronym for the Plénitude 2 series, Dom Pérignon’s second life. It indicates that bottles are kept by the house to let them age on the lees and to obtain different expressions of the same wine throughout its life, letting time work its magic and thus acquiring additional complexity. This year, Dom Pérignon’s cellar master, Vincent Chaperon, decided to release the 2004 vintage. ‘2004 was a contrast to 2003,’ he said. After rain in January, the spring was hot and sunny, like the beginning of summer. But the summer was wet, with 50% more rain than in an average year. Despite this, the health of the grapes was stable and the crop was abundant. ‘This is quite a perfect vintage,’ he added. The bouquet impresses with its finesse and elegance, its delicate aromas of pastry, orchard fruit, nuts, and lemon oil, and both iodine and chalky hints with air. The palate is medium- to full-bodied, very charming, with a sappy texture, racy acids, and a long and lingering finish. This is a very harmonious and rather chalky Dom Pérignon, which must be approached in its singularity. Time is a real asset here. Dosage: 5g/L.Decanter | 96 DECThe 2004 Dom Pérignon P2 is drinking beautifully on release, wafting from the glass with aromas of sweet orchard fruit, fresh peach, pastry cream, buttered toast and cotton candy that display a less reductive profile than the original disgorgement. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and charming, with an ample, enveloping core of fruit, succulent acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse, it concludes with a long, sapid finish. Forward and giving, there’s no obvious reason to defer gratification.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 95 RP

2008 moet chandon dom perignon (lenny kravitz labels) Champagne

The 2008 Dom Pérignon is the first time the estate has released a wine out of order (the 2009 was released before the 2008) but the estate loved the wine so much they felt it warranted additional aging. This is a rich, powerful wine that still shows incredible purity and elegance, with a stacked, concentrated feel on the palate. It’s rare to find such a mix of ripe, pure, concentrated fruit paired with this level of purity, focus, and precision. This is a legendary Dom that surpasses all the great vintages of Dom I have experience with, including the 1990, 1996, and 2002.Jeb Dunnuck | 98 JDThe best Dom since 2002. A vintage with very restrained, powerful style that has been released non-sequentially after the 2009. This has a lighter stamp of highly curated, autolytic, toasty aromas than many recent releases. Instead, this delivers super fresh and intense aromas of lemons, grapefruit and blood-orange peel. Incredible freshness here. The palate has a very smoothly delivered, berry-pastry thread with light, sweet spices, stone fruit and fine citrus fruit. This really delivers.James Suckling | 98 JSThe 2008 Dom Pérignon is once again stunning. More than anything else, I am surprised by how well the 2008 drinks given all the tension and energy it holds. Then again, that is precisely what makes 2008 such a unique vintage – namely that the best wines are so chiseled and yet not at all austere. Lemon peel, almond, mint, smoke and crushed rocks are all finely sculpted, but it is the wine’s textural feel, drive and persistence that elevate it into the realm of the sublime. The 2008 will be even better with time in the cellar, but it is absolutely phenomenal even today, in the early going. Three recent bottles have all been nothing short of magnificent.Vinous Media | 98 VM(Dom Pérignon Brut Millésime (Épernay)) I had not tasted a bottle of the 2008 vintage of Dom Pérignon since my interview with Richard Geoffroy at the abbey in Hautvillers just a few months before Monsieur Geoffroy retired. I was very happy to see it generously added by John Chapman to our lineup for the second Vega Sicilia vertical that I reported on in the previous issue, as it is a wine of the same superb quality as all those great old Únicos. As I noted in my feature on Dom Pérignon, the 2008 is an absolutely classic vintage for this wine, which means it is structured, structured, structured, and at twelve years of age, still an absolute infant! The primary bouquet offers up a promising blend of apple, lime peel, menthol, superb minerality, a touch of young DP botanicals and tons of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with brisk acids, refined mousse, bruising backend mineral drive and a very long, very pure and seamlessly balanced finish. I scored this a touch lower than the bottle in Hautvillers, but I suspect that this is just the result of context and the wine has not lost any of its luster- it has only hidden its essence even further behind its electric girdle of acidity. This is years away from its apogee, but has utterly brilliant potential. (Drink between 2030-2075).John Gilman | 96+ JGDeparting chef de caves Richard Geoffroy says that 2008 is his best DP vintage since 1990. The first half of the growing season was dull and sunless, but good weather returned in mid-September and led to one of the longest harvests, running into October. The summer provided ideal conditions for a classic, cool, maritime vintage of exceptional, subtle aromas with minerality and freshness. This has a vibrant but controlled acidity, and is above all a memorable symbiosis of mature fruit and salinity derived from top terroirs. The poised mouthfeel makes this a perfect gastronomic wine, strong enough for spicy Asian cuisine from the Pacific rim, but still compatible with classics such as roast turbot and lobster.Decanter | 96 DECThere’s power to this graceful Champagne, with the vivid acidity swathed in a fine, creamy mousse and flavors of toasted brioche, kumquat, pastry cream, candied ginger and poached plum that dance across the palate. An underpinning of smoky mineral gains momentum on the lasting finish.Wine Spectator | 96 WSThe 2008 Dom Pérignon continues to show very well, offering up a pretty bouquet of Anjou pear, fresh peach, citrus oil, fresh pastry, smoke and iodine. On the palate, it's full-bodied, lively and incisive, with an elegantly textural attack and a creamy core of fruit that's underpinned by a bright but nicely integrated spine of acidity. The finish is long, saline and well-defined. As I wrote earlier this year, this is the finest Dom Pérignon since 1996, Richard Geoffroy's push for additional ripeness working well with the late-maturing, high-acid vintage. While it can be appreciated young, the 2008 will really start to blossom with five or six years of bottle age.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 95+ RP

This bundles a lot of concentrated flavor into a lithe frame, with the fine mousse caressing the palate through to the lasting finish. Drink now through 2035.Wine Spectator | 96 WSThe 2010 Dom Pérignon is hard to get a read on today. I have tasted it four times over the last few months, and my feeling is that it is still not totally put together. Apricot, pastry, chamomile, mint and light tropical notes are all signatures of a hot vintage with a very fast final phase of ripening that trails only 2002 and 2003 in terms of sugars. Of course, the year had plenty of challenges. The first part of the year was marked by cold and very dry weather during the winter and spring. June saw heat and some stress in the vines. July and August were quite warm, with heavy rains on August 15 and 16 that caused a widespread outbreak of botrytis that accelerated rapidly in the days leading up to harvest. Chef de Caves Vincent Chaperon explained that Chardonnay was favored over Pinot because better aeration within the clusters helped fend off rot, while parcels that had been less stressed by the June heat also suffered less from the effects of botrytis. Perhaps because of the unevenness in the season, there is also something disjointed about the 2010. While sugars were high, so were acidities, just behind 2008 in the decade of the 2000s. It will be interesting to see where the 2010 goes over time. It is the first vintage made under the direction of Vincent Chaperon, who worked alongside outgoing Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy for many years.Antonio Galloni | 93 AGSoft gold, with a gentle green luminescence and a paler rim. A fine bead and immediately reassuring nose…. classic DP this, citric fruit, slate, sourdough, soft spice and the softly whispered intimations of tropical decadence. Pedigree writ large. The palate continues the theme, albeit with great subtlety. Vincent describes sapidity, itself buttressing the fruit which now recalls nectarines and pineapple, maybe a hint of crystallised grapefruit. The finish unfurls neatly, a gentle phenolic kick of salinity underwriting structure and potential alike.

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.James Suckling | 98 JSVivid acidity and a chalky underpinning make a crystalline frame for finely detailed notes of ripe melon, mandarin orange, toasted brioche and candied ginger in this harmonious Champagne, which is expressive and expansive on the palate, but with a sense of finesse and restraint. Long and creamy on the mineral-laced finish. Drink now through 2037.Wine Spectator | 96 WSDisgorged in October last year, the 2013 Dom Pérignon is a lovely wine, defined by the long, cool growing season. Offering up aromas of crisp stone fruit, tangerine oil, buttered toast, pear, almonds and clear honey, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and seamless, with bright acids and a pillowy, enveloping profile, concluding with a long, saline finish. Vincent Chaperon recalls that shatter at fruit set moderated yields and that a drying east wind in the weeks before harvest helped to maintain the good sanitation necessary to wait to pick at full maturity.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 95+ RPThe 2013 Dom Pérignon is quite delicate and understated. It reminds me of the 2004, but with a bit more mid-palate richness and a bit less energy. Apricot, tangerine peel, white flowers, jasmine, mint and light honeyed notes all meld together. There’s lovely vinous intensity as well as a feeling of openness that make the 2013 a delight to taste today. The 2013 doesn’t look to be an epic DP, but it sure is delicious right now.Vinous Media | 94 VM
