Dom Pierre Perignon was appointed "cellarer", or administrator, of the Abbaye d’Hautvillers in 1668. For the next 47 years he dedicated himself to creating "the best wine in the world. " Dom Pérignon’s creative ambition is a constant quest for harmony as a source of emotion.
A year full of paradoxes for winemaking, Dom Perignon Brut Champagne 2012 gave birth to a great vintage, surmounting multiple challenges. Nature proved unpredictable and implacable as a series of climate events descended upon the vineyards: frost in the winter and spring, torrential rains, hailstorms, and cold spells while the vines were flowering, plus intense heat waves over the summer. A warm and dry climate alleviated any concerns as to the health of grapes, favoring the maturation of the fruit. The beginning of the harvest stretched from September 10 to 26, depending on the parcels. Tasting the grapes revealed tremendous promise, with a balance between freshness and generosity.
The nose is full and varied, mingling flowers with fruit, then vegetal with mineral. The bouquet is tactile, subtly enticing us along a trail of powdery white flowers and nectarous apricot, followed by the freshness of rhubarb and mint, and the minerality of ash. White pepper.
Energy dominates on the palate. After a welcoming open the Dom Perignon Brut Champagne 2012 quickly becomes vibrant and then literally explodes with a surge of effervescence and a tonic sensation. Focused by acidic and bitter notes, the finish brings a penetrating tautness, marked by ginger, tobacco and toastiness.
