Dom Perignon Brut


Yet another scintillating wine from Dom Perignon (Does not include Gift Box)

Dom Perignon 2013
Ready, but will keep

Silky, narrowly sculpted and serene, Dom Pérignon 2013 is a less hedonistic release than the 2012 (and less intensely energetic than the 2008), but showcases a beautiful mid-place between tension and expressiveness already. Orange-coloured fruit – apricots, mango and orange – play along with snappy lemon syrup and delicate red fruits, the palate teased into considerable detail and length with some trademark Dom Pérignon smokiness.

The 2013 Dom Pérignon is a lovely wine, defined by the long, cool growing season. Offering up aromas of crisp stone fruit, tangerine oil, buttered toast, pear, almonds and clear honey, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and seamless, with bright acids and a pillowy, enveloping profile, concluding with a long, saline finish.

There is immediate pleasure here, although cellaring will let some of the inner complexity unfurl, revealing this to the among the finest Dom Pérignon releases of recent times.

Assemblage: 51% Pinot Noir, 49% Chardonnay.

Cellaring Potential

Definitiley ready to drink now, but will reveal great complexity for several years (drink between 2023 and 2035)


Whilst it is often frowned upon for Champagne, we often like to decant our vintage Champagnes for a short while. Sometimes just 20 minutes decanting makes a world of difference. When we personally visited Dom Pérignon they decanted the Champagne during dinner.
