Moet & Chandon Dom Perignon Brut, Champagne, France 2005

$142.00

Winemaker's Notes
The wines remarkably rich bouquet reveals itself in successive waves: first the intense fruit, more black than red, which then melts into silvery minerality. Notes of praline and coriander complement the whole. The wine has a strong character and a powerful presence there is even something physical about it. Overall, it is structured, focused, firm and dense. Its intriguingly spicy, flowery finish remains present in each sip.

 

Critical Acclaim


V95
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
- "The 2005 Dom Pérignon opens with the classic Dom Pérignon bouquet. Warm toasty notes meld into expressive fruit in a supple, silky Champagne endowed with stunning depth, nuance and complexity. Sweet floral notes add lift as the wine opens up in the glass. Overall, the 2005 is a relatively delicate, gracious DP, but what it lacks in depth it more than makes up with persistence and its open, totally inviting personality. Today it's hard to see the 2005 making old bones, but it is a gorgeous wine to drink while the 2004 ages. In 2005, the release is scheduled to last about six months, which means production is down around 50% over normal levels. All I can say is the 2005 is fabulous, especially in a vintage that required considerable sorting to eliminate rampant rot in the Pinots."


WS94
Wine Spectator
- "A rich version, with a streak of smoky minerality underscoring the flavors of clover honey, apple, blackberry and biscuit. Creamy in texture and persistent, presenting a long, sculpted finish. Drink now through 2030."
