Dom Pérignon Blanc 2013
After the turbulent but excellent 2012 vintage, 2013 continued in the same tone. Characterized by climate extremes, a delay in the life cycle of the vine, it ended up as more than a successful season. The creators of Dom Perignon do not hesitate to face all the challenges that nature puts before them. They do not try to control nature, but work with it, adapt to it and create their visions around it. They implement their ideas with their expertise and experience, supported by the influence of time.
The result is Dom Perignon 2013, which clearly shows the complementarity of nature, human work, and time, taking into account all their similarities and differences. The grapes alone hinted at what that year was like, marked by heavy rains, but also great heat - opposition, paired with balance. They tasted as a promising balance between acidity and full-body. A wonderful canvas for Chef de Cave of Dom Perignon. After almost 10 years of aging, his artistic work, sculpted by time, shows harmony, creativity and mutual respect of all participants-creators.
On the nose, Dom Perignon vintage 2013 reveals elegance and layers of aromas. Gentle green of eucalyptus, mint and vetiver. Yellow-orange Mirabelle plum, apricot and orange blossom. Warm brown pepper, cardamom and licorice. Everything is permeated with silvery saltiness and toasty nuances.In the mouth it is elegantly simple and precise. The forward is, one might say, ethereal. Then it spreads like silk all over the mouth, showing all of its opulence. The finish is dominated by saltiness and savoriness that leaves us with a deep sense of consistency. Freshness and fullness are, of course, kept in an optimal balance.There is nothing left for you to do but surrender and let the new Dom Perignon take you to the delicate but powerful world of elegance and harmony.
