Dom Perignon - 2012Explosive Harmony
2012 was a year of unpredictable weather, however despite the challenges, Dom Pérignon's vineyards yielded exceptional grapes. From delicate, fresh chardonnays to firm and fruity pinot noir and elegant meunier, this is a wonderful vintage champagne that will age exceptionally well.
Intense flavours and contrasts have produced a multi-dimensional vintage, named 'explosive harmony' by the maison. Balancing complex acidity with a well-rounded maturity, the scintillating dialogue between two very different styles of grapes will challenge and seduce the taster.
Nose: Powdery white flowers, sweet apricot, fresh rhubarb and mint combine with ashy minerality and an energising dash of white pepper.
Palate: A smooth entry quickly explodes into effervescence, focused by acidic and bitter notes. The finish has a penetrating tautness marked by ginger, tobacco and toastiness.
