Chardonnay Pinot Noir Epernay France
Dom Perignon is met with the highest expectations every year, generating much excitement from the praise and accolades of industry peers and the international press. Dom Pierre Pérignon, spiritual father of Champagne, devoted his life to an unwavering quest, to go beyond the established norm and to create. Introducing the latest collaboration between Dom Perignon and a world class Creator, this limited edition of the finest marque in Champagne, has been designed by Dutch fashion doyen and creative force Iris Van Herpen.
Creators are consumed by inspiration, imagination and vision, the audacity to undertake an act of creation, to transcend their field and to create a timeless legacy. When Dom Pérignon collaborates with a Creator, the outcome is always an act of inspiration, unexpected and unique. Already a highly approachable and inviting release, Vintage 2004 leaves its mark on the history of Dom Pérignon for its generosity and ease. Vine bunches were of a significant number and size. The release of each new edition Dom Perignon is the climax after years and years of hard work, within the vineyard and at the winery. Vintage 2004 was defined by the dry heat of the final weeks before harvest on 24th September.
A refined effervescence within a hue of spun gold. On the nose, aromas of almond and powdered cocoa develop gradually into white fruit with hints of dried flowers. Classic toasted notes give a rounded finish and denote a fully realized maturity. On the palate, the wine instantly traces an astoundingly fine line between density and weightlessness. Its precision is extreme, tactile, dark and chiselled. The full taste lingers with the utmost elegance on a sappy, spicy note.
