Dom Perignon launches 2005

Dom Pérignon has launched the 2005 vintage, small in quantity but with “exceptional quality” and “a never-before-seen aromatic maturity” according to Richard Geoffroy.

BottleBlanc2005HDIn a year that few have decided to declare a vintage and after nine years ageing in the cellars, cellar master Richard Geoffroy, said the wine has, “a rich bouquet of predominantly black fruit underpinned by a silvery minerality and notes of praline and coriander.

“On the palate it is powerful, structured and dense with an intriguingly spicy flower finish.”

After a good, warm year the harvest was almost ruined by a cool and wet start to September although the onset of botrytis, especially on the Pinot Noir was reversed by a return to good weather near the start of the harvest which was 14 September for the Chardonnay and 17 September for the Pinot Noir.

The wine will have an RRP of £130 a bottle.
