LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
Purported to be the father of all Champagne, Dom Pérignon is the ultimate anniversary or birthday celebration bubbly. Wine Enthusiast awarded the 2000 a score of 95 points, declaring: 'This is a classic Dom Pérignon vintage ... Worth aging, it will be even better in 3-4 years.' (March 2008) Tasting Note: The 2000 Dom Perignon is a gorgeous, seductive wine that floats on the palate with remarkable grace. Toasty aromas meld into freshly cut flowers, apricots and pears, with sweet notes of mint and licorice that linger on the long finish. This perfumed, inviting Dom Perignon is elegance personified, and in this vintage the wine fully merits its lofty reputation. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. Score - 94.
