The perfect harmony: Dom Pérignon vintage
HARMONIOUS AND CONSTANT
For Dom Pérignon,blending is the main meeting point in theelaboration of champagne. This creative gesture, starting from the vine and through an exploration based on intuition and creation, will generate contrasts and paradoxes, opposites and complementarities, thus revealing the truth of each vintage. This is reflected in the Dom Pérignon 2012 vintage and its explosive harmony shared today. The unpredictability, authority and generosity of the 2012 season have created a unique olfactory landscape of incredible diversity. Unparalleled richness and variety: In 2012, every grape variety, every region, every village, every parcel was at its best, allowing the vintage to play its full role. Blending intensity, restrained tension and extreme contrasts, Dom Pérignon Vintage 2012 presents a unique architecture that displays a controlled rhythm of energy guided by acid and bitterness.
The nose is full and varied, with a mix of flowers and fruits, then herbs and minerals. The bouquets are tactile. Pink-white flowers softened by apricot and plums from Merabel. From the freshness of rhubarb and mint to the minerality of ash. White pepper.
This is the dominant energy in the mouth. After a welcoming opening, the wine quickly vibrates. The effervescence is revealed and it's uplifting. The finish tightens, guided by acidity and bitterness. It has left its mark: ginger, tobacco, toast.
