The creation of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2010 took equal parts mastery and humility. I hope it never ceases to inspire you! Vincent Chaperon, Chef de Cave

Description

Vincent Chaperon has been working closely with Dom Perignon since 2005, taking part in 13 harvests and declaring four vintages. Born into a winemaking family in Bordeaux, France, as young as eight years old, his grandfather regaled him with fascinating tales of the vineyards. “It’s not about putting your signature on something,” says Chaperon. “I decided to take this position because I knew that I would be happy all of my life working, discovering, experiencing, living Dom Pérignon.” Made from only the best grapes, Dom Pérignon commitment to vintages is absolute. Each Vintage wine is created from the best grapes grown in one single year – a true challenge for a unique interpretation of the seasons, and for reinvention.

James Suckling – 98 Points

A firm and vivid Champagne with a precise, focused palate. Full-bodied and dry. It’s very layered and bright with light pineapple, peach, praline, cooked-apple and stone aromas and flavors. It’s very subtle and focused at the end. Integrated with richness and high acidity. Good depth. Reminds me of the 1995. Very clean. Solid. Lovely to drink already, but will age nicely.” Jul/20 —jamessuckling.com

Wine Spectator – 96 Points

A graceful Champagne, featuring fragrant notes of toasted brioche and grilled nut that are more subtle on the palate, transitioning to a rich underpinning layered with a pure chime of tangerine and accents of candied ginger, toasted saffron and lime blossom. This bundles a lot of concentrated flavor into a lithe frame. The fine mousse caresses the palate through to the lasting finish. Drink now through 2035. Aug/2020 —Alison Napjus

Wine Enthusiast – 96 Points

The new release of this iconic Champagne shows its richness to perfection. The floral aromas lead to a wine that has weight and density as well as a balance that encompasses ripe fruits that have now matured to reveal nuttiness, toast and a tight salinity at the end. Drink through 2028. Dec/20 —Roger Voss
