Utterly seductive, brilliant golden colour, shimmering with fine, regular bubbles. The nose is an elegant combination of fruity, floral and mineral notes. Aromas of citrus, peaches, pears, ripe wheat and white flowers develop against a background of mineral notes, layering with hints of chalkiness and brioche. The palate shows a freshness tempered by just sufficient vinosity for a creamy, supple attack, giving way to delicate flavours of lusciously ripe fruit – aromas of Mirabelle plums and citrus, perfectly blended in a tasty, persistent mouthfeel.
L’Intemporelle is a magical blend of fruit from carefully selected parcels, made in a seductive, well balanced style. First released in 1990, this wine has become a favourite of gourmet restaurants far and wide.
2012 was deemed one of the best vintages the Champagne region has ever experienced. “The quality and the intensity are definitely there to make an outstanding vintage,” Dom Perignon chef de cave Richard Geoffroy told Decanter. The base wines show a lovely richness as well as the acidity needed to make outstanding and long-lived Champagnes. Yields are very low, in some places half of the allowed production.
