The 2005 vintage leaves its mark on the history of Dom Pérignon for its ease and generosity. In contrast with the year before, vine growth was regular and progressed without incident, while the bunches were of a significant number and size. While the weather remained moderate for some time with the month of August particularly cool – the vintage was defined by the dry heat of the final weeks before the harvest. The harvest began on 24th September with the grapes displaying excellent ripeness and health.
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.
