Dom Pérignon : Vintage 2004

All Vintages of this wine
The Dom Pérignon 2004 reveals notes of white fruit and dried flower on the nose, mixed with almond and powdered cocoa. The classic characters of the roasting complete the whole, to give a fully riped wine. On the palate, the wine evolves between thickness and weightlessness. The precision is extreme, tactile, dark and chiselled, and finishes on a sappy and spicy note. The Dom Pérignon 2004 is a racy champagne whose cellar master, Richard Geoffroy, compares it to its glorious predecessor of 1970. The Dom Pérignon wines stand out thanks to a beautiful aromatic complexity, their structure, and their texture. Through the ageing process, those wines become more complex, deeper yet, they keep their freshness and a unique style. During the tasting, those feelings are found in the expression of the duet Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. If the Chardonnay offers the first sensation of boldness and vibration across the palate, the Pinot Noir counter balances the feeling thanks to its length.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2004 Dom Pérignon wafts from the glass with notions of freshly baked bread, crisp yellow orchard fruit, honeycomb and iodine. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied and open-knit but incisive, with a textural attack, an elegant pinpoint mousse and attractive purity. Between the rich, ripe 2002 and the powerful but racy 2008, the 2004 is an excellent but more classically proportioned example of Dom Pérignon.
