2012 was a great vintage! The grapes harvested between September 10 and 26 revealed a perfect balance between tension, freshness and richness. Despite the low yields, 2012 was a great vintage for champagne.
Dom Perignon's website:
'Combining intensity, contained tautness and extreme contradictions, the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2012 blend reveals a unique structure, resonating to the rhythm of controlled energy, channelled by an acidity and bitterness that burst forth magnificently.....Energy dominates on the palate. After a welcoming opening, the wine quickly becomes vibrant and then literally explodes with a surge of effervescence and tonicity. Focused by acidic and bitter notes, the finish brings a penetrating tautness marked by ginger, tobacco and toasted accents.'
