Dom Pérignon will launch 2009 vintage before 2008

Dom Perignon has announced the launch of its 2009 vintage ahead of the 2008, marking the first time the house has broken the order of its releases.

While the 2008 has widely been described as a brilliant vintage, if not the best in Champagne since the legendary 2002, it was a cooler year with a harsh winter. The 2009, however, was a warm and rich year, so the first plentitude of the wine was reached faster than its elder sibling.

 

Chef de cave Richard Geoffroy said the 2009 was marked by “fruit, glorious fruit!” and that experience of other warm vintages such as 2003 had been vital to the handling and creation of the 2009.

Geoffroy said: “Dom Pérignon 2009 would certainly not be what it is without the experience gained while producing Dom Pérignon Vintage 2003 – the first of a fantastic decade to rise to so many challenges.  It is one of the ‘seminal’ Vintages that encourages winemakers to go beyond what they already know: to take risks and keep on growing.”

The 2009 is expected to be released to the UK trade this September with an RRP of £130 per bottle.

The Story

 At the end of the 17th Century, Dom Pierre Pérignon stated his ambition to create ‘the best wine in the world’.  On 29 September 1694, Dom Pierre Pérignon wrote that his mission was to create “the best wine in the world.” He dedicated himself to improving viticulture techniques, perfecting the art blending grapes from different crus, and introduced the gentle and fractional pressing to obtain white wine from black grapes.Ever since, the House of Dom Pérignon has perpetuated this visionary approach instilled by its founder, one that remains a hallmark of true luxury: the constant reinvention of the exceptional.

Under the creative leadership of cellar master Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon is reinvented with every vintage. The miraculous concept of assemblage – the delicate balance between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – and the commitment to Vintage are instrumental in the act of creation, revealing the wine's extra soul. Precise and tactile to the point of seamlessness, tense through rhythm and vibrancy, vigorous and fresh yet mature, intense and complex – such is the sensual style of Dom Pérignon: so inviting, yet so mysterious...

The core of the blend are the eight historical Grands Crus, Aÿ, Bouzy, Verzenay, Mailly, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil, plus the legendary Hautvillers Premier Cru. Dom Perignon also has the unique privilege of being able to select grapes from all 17 Grands Crus in Champagne. giving birth to Dom Perignon's highly intriguing contrast".

Vintage 2009

The stretch of excellent weather condition of 2009 was unprecedented, and allowed us to explore new frontiers of grape ripeness in Champagne. The vintage offers a taste of the ripest and richest fruit, grapes in their prime, with the promise of the future wine's freshness and energy. The 2009 vintage brings a prodigious, sunny, bold and generous decade to a close. 

 

ON THE NOSE

Notes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest combine with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine. The wine opens up, with the whole complemented by woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche.

ON THE PALATE

The fruit is majestic: ripe, fleshy and profound. Beyond the richness and a certain voluptuousness is a strong impression of consistency that prevails. The wine’s power is remarkably restrained. The various sensations – silky, salty, sappy, bitter and briny – converge and persist.

FOOD PAIRING

Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009 is a wine that needs to be excited. It needs a framework, it appeals to be stretched with contrasts. 
The champagne reaches out to the "vegetable" and "mineral" worlds, calling out by sea urchin carbonara with cardamom mousse. It works brilliantly when it has something to chew on: octopus marinated in Sicilian orange juice and roasted in butter.

Written Notes

The Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009 develops on the nose fragrances of guava and the zest of green spicy grapefruit, along with notes of stone fruit, white peach and nectarine. After stirring slightly, the wine reveals touches of woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche. On the palate, the wine is fruity, ripe, fleshy and of great depth. Rich and voluptuous, the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009 is extremely consistent, with perfectly contained power. One may observe an array of sensations, with a silky, saline side, bitterness and even tasty iodised touches.

The fruit. The rich, ripe yet fresh fruit. This is what I will remember from 2009: the paroxysmal fruit and its promise of energy, freshness and texture in the wine to come. 2009 is a seminal vintage, along with 2003, 1996 or 1990. And it might never have existed if not for those vintages and the experience we were able to accumulate.

 

Let us go back to the fruit. In Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009, the fruit is superlative, majestic: plump, profound, intense yet weightless. We might never equal such ripeness again. The influence of the fruit on the nose is clear: guava, pomelo, white peach, nectarine… On the palate, the fruit becomes tactile: the wine is vibrant, full of energy. The finish is a subtle play between effervescence, tannins and salinity.
