Dom Perignon Vintage 2010
Dom Perignon French Champagne 750ml Current vintage 2010
This is the perfect addition to a gift set for an elevated and personalised baby gift.
2010 represents a grand juxtaposition of the contrasts that define Dom Perignon, at once powerfully characterful and at the same time determined and energetic. An impressively bright pale straw hue at a full decade of age, it upholds primary focus and cut admits the rising plethora of character and maturity. Grapefruit preserved lemon and pear are underlined by brioche, lemon meringue and vanilla custard. The Classic Dom Perignon signatures of coffee bean are accented in 2010 by a suggestion of green olives, which will increase as it matures. Phenolic structure plays a strong role here, true to the modern style of Dom Perignon, lending a bitter yet never grainy grip to the finish, upholding the fruit concentration and acid presence to hold it. It’s the energy on the finish that sets this apart as an impressive take on the challenging 2010 season, with the cut and drive to age long. 95 points. Tyson Stelzer
