Dom Pérignon Gift Box 2006

The Monk has been brewing and kicked out another bottle of fizz for us to devour!

I often bag the big houses. Reality is at the bottom end, their juice is just battery acid with alcohol and bubbles in it. The top end, the super cuvées, there’s another story. Dom Pé as I affectionately call it, along with Krug NV, Cristal and Sir Winnie Churchill are made with unlimited resources, of Grand Cru vineyard, and, as much time and detail in the winery as needed. The results are very tasty!

Why is this Wine so Yummy?

From the Winery

2006 was climatically irregular and, taken as a whole, hot and dry.  The cellar-based ripening of the 2006 vintage was very slow. For a long time, the wine was largely dominated solely by the fruit’s ripeness. It was not until 2015 that the comprehensiveness and harmony of its first plénitude was finally revealed. Dom Pérignon 2006 is superlative, luminous and glorious. Its original generosity – ample and tactile – is enhanced by a clear structure that gives it freshness and precision.

On the nose

The immediate impression is of the mildness of the pure, airy, bright bouquet. A floral, fruity pastel tone then unfolds and quickly darkens into candied fruit, ripe hay and toasted notes, along with hints of licorice.

On the palate

The wine’s opulence – contained and succulent, round at heart – reveals itself on the palate. The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy. The whole eventually melts into an exquisite bitterness tinged with the briny taste of the sea.

97 Points

This is very lively and vibrant with a dense and rich center palate. Lots of complexity and balance with pastry, sliced lemon and light dried mango. Full yet racy and intense. A beautiful center palate. Linear. Shows potential for aging but so good right now.

98 Points

Most vintages of Dom are new-born when first released, forcing you to go in search of the wine to be. No such effort is required here: the fresh, lifted florals, brioche and almonds burst from the glass from the first sniff. Despite its eloquence, the key words remain delicate, detailed and freshness, the vibrancy of the palate running as a clear stream from start to finish.
