Notes

The 2009 vintage of Dom Pérignon has been released in SA and it is spectacular. Much like the startling 2006, the 2009 heralds from another warm Champagne vintage and flirts with the frontiers of ripeness. No 2007 vintage was produced and the 2009 is the first DP ever to be released out of sequence. The high-acid 2008 will take some time to blossom and will be released later.

‘The stretch of excellent weather conditions in 2009 was unprecedented,’ states Cellar Master Richard Geoffroy, ‘the vintage offers a taste of the ripest and richest fruit, grapes in their prime, with the promise of the future wine's freshness and energy.’

Eight years of ageing allows Dom Pérignon to offer another level of complexity in 2009. It has vivacious fruit and savoury notes combined with unbelievable depth. The 2009 is not short on finesse and acidity however, and has an underlying limey minerality that completes its long, silky palate. It is elegant, yet decadent, and for drinking now or cellaring through to 2030+.

No other wine on the planet combines such a luxurious feel, fine quality and investment potential.

Vintage conditions:
The stretch of excellent weather condition of 2009 was unprecedented, and allowed them to explore new frontiers of grape ripeness in Champagne. The vintage offers a taste of the ripest and richest fruit, grapes in their prime, with the promise of the future wine's freshness and energy. The 2009 vintage brings a prodigious, sunny, bold and generous decade to a close.

Tasting notes:
'This is a DP that shows the ripeness of the 2009 vintage yet remains full of energy. Gorgeous aromas of cream, apple, mango, honeysuckle, and chalk follow through to a full body and super fine, tight texture. Dense and agile. Vinous. It’s like a top grand cru white Burgundy. Think Batard-Montrachet. More depth than the 2006.' – James Suckling, 97/100

'There's a subtle power to this graceful Champagne, which boasts a firm, crystalline frame of acidity married to the fine, satinlike mousse and notes of white raspberry, brioche and Earl Grey tea. Seamless through to the long finish of smoke and spice accents, this opens beautifully in the glass. Drink now through 2029.' – Wine Spectator, 96/100

'Unbroken sun through August and early September helped to shape an idyllic harvest, on 12th September. Superb maturity of fruit in flawless health has produced a wine with wafting scents of both fresh and confit of spiced lemon and wild cherry. Despite the heat, the wine has freshness, vitality and length. Still a youngster, this will grow greatly by 2019. A more stylish son of the '03, and cousin of the slender and charming '06.' – Decanter, 96/100

'The 2009 Dom Pérignon is a gorgeous, totally seductive Champagne that will drink well right out of the gate. Medium in body and unusually open-knit at this stage, the 2009 is one of the most accessible young Dom Pérignons I can remember tasting. It is an excellent choice to drink while waiting for the release of the stellar 2008 and some recent vintages that remain very young, including the 2006. Despite the warm, ripe personality of the 2009 Dom Pérignon is quite gracious, but there is plenty of depth underpinning the fruit. With each successive tasting, the 2009 seems to have gained more power and breadth, especially on the finish. Above all else, the 2009 is decidedly restrained for a warm, radiant vintage. It is not as overtly flamboyant as the 2002 nor as phenolically intense as years like 2003 and 2006. Instead, the 2009 is a beautifully balanced Champagne, with all of its elements in the right place.' – Antonio Galloni, 94+/100
