Dom Perignon Vintage 2013 Champagne 75cl
Dom Perignon is only released as a vintage champagne in years where the harvest has been exceptional. Each release is a creation that is singular, and unique and that expresses the character of the year and of Dom Perignon. After 8 years in the cellars, the champagne offers a harmonious balance.
Depending on the vintage the Pinot Noir in Dom Perignon champagnes usually dominates; presenting peach, raspberry, and dark cherry. The Chardonnay then adds a supportive layer that is chalky in texture and offers notes of pineapple, plum, and apple. This vintage release is made up of 51% Pinot Noir and 49% Chardonnay.View all Dom Pérignon >

The 2013 growing season proved to be a much-welcomed reminder of glorious late vintages of the past. An extremely rainy and grey Spring followed a cold, wet Winter. Fortunately, the hot and dry Summer was one of the sunniest on record in the Champagne region and proved very beneficial for the quality of the grapes. The harvest at Dom Perignon ran from the 28th of September to the 15th of October and revealed a perfect balance between being full-bodied and acidic.
The nose is delicate and unfolds to reveal deeper aromatic layers. Notes of green eucalyptus, mint and Mirabelle plums make way for further aromas of apricot, orange blossom, and pepper on the finish. The palate is elegant and expresses a luxurious precision. A refined, silky foundation becomes more pronounced to reveal a finish that is dominated by salinity and consistency.
The Dom Perignon Vintage 2013 Champagne makes the perfect pairing with rich fish such as salmon or seared tuna, or alongside a pork-based dish such as braised pork in a ginger glaze.
