On the nose, the 2000 is fresh, crystal-clear and sharp. The first nose reminds of a water vegetal world with hints of white pepper and gardenia. Along with maturity, a certain smoothness and lightness emanates, with more pit-like hints. On the palate, the attack is immediate. Fresh aromas of anise and ginger little by little match fleshy fruits such as pear or mango. The final is long lasting, ripe and steady.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2000 Brut Dom Perignon is a gorgeous, seductive wine that floats on the palate with remarkable grace. Toasty aromas meld into freshly cut flowers, apricots and pears, with sweet notes of mint and licorice that linger on the long finish. This perfumed, inviting Dom Perignon is elegance personified, and in this vintage the wine fully merits its lofty reputation. According to winemaker Vincent Chaperone there is only one disgorgement date for the first release of Dom Perignon, and the 2000 was disgorged over a period of weeks in March and April, 2007, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018.
