DOM PÉRIGNON VINTAGE 2010
Dom Pérignon has a creative ambition that is a perpetual quest: the search for harmony that inspires emotion. All creative processes have their constraints. For Dom Pérignon, it is the vintage. An absolute commitment to bear witness to the harvest of a single year whatever challenges it brings, even going as far as not declaring a vintage.
Time is part of the Dom Pérignon equation. It takes no fewer than eight years of ageing to reach the aesthetic ideal of Dom Pérignon. In the darkness of the cellars, inside the bottles, each vintage experiences a slow transformation in contact with yeasts to obtain the harmony that will characterise Dom Pérignon forever. Everything is there, with great precision and impressive equilibrium.
With low temperatures, the beginning of 2010 offered a contrast to the rest of the decade.
Summer was hot and rainfall rare. Everything changed in mid-August, when two months worth of rain fell in just two days. The heat and water caused generous ripening but required drastic sorting of the grapes. The sugariness of tropical fruit yields to a more measured freshness. The wine makes its full, ample presence felt. Its character untolds, generous and firm - before tautening around vibrant, spicy notes. This energy extends to reveal a salty finish.
