2010: THE ESSENCE OF THE CHALLENGE
2010. Winter was rigorous, spring dry and late. After a particularly sunny decade, such freshness was surprising. Summer was hot, but not excessively so. Then, two days of diluvian rain brought this ideal trajectory to a halt. In just a few days, botrytis mold developed on the grapes, mainly on the pinot noir.

This triggered a race against the clock. The grapes were not yet fully mature, but a decision had to be made quickly. Dom Pérignon deployed its full resources to trace a precise map delimiting the maturity and health of each parcel in its vineyards. Every minute counted.

This expert vision of the situation gave the possibility of saving excellent plots of pinot noir grapes. The challenge was met, Dom Pérignon declared a vintage quite literally “saved from the waters”: Dom Pérignon Vintage 2010, fruit of intuition and mastery.
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

ON THE NOSE
The luminous sweetness of tropical fruit – green mango, melon, pineapple – instantly shines. It then cedes to more temperate notes, the tingle of orange zest, the mist of a mandarin orange. The wine breathes, revealing its freshness. The bloom after the rain. A tactile sensation of peony, jasmine and lilac.
ON THE PALATE
The wine immediately imposes its ample presence, full and massive. A sappy sensation dominates as the tactile is rapidly overtaken by the aromatic. The body unfolds: generous, firm and controlled. Then it contracts, letting the wine vibrate with spices and pepper. The energy is sustained to a scintillating, saline finish.

A vintage Vincent Chaperon is convinced has been misguidedly overlooked. 54% Chardonnay, 46% Pinot Noir. Dosage 5g/l. This bottle was disgorged February 2019. Amazingly, obviously, Dom P on the nose –the powerful lemon-mousse nose came soaring out of the glass long before my nose got anywhere near it. Massive intensity of complex aroma hints that this might be a little blowsy on the palate but not a bit of it. It’s really tense and tight on the palate and has a certain fumey smokiness to the very concentrated palate. But its most marked feature is the persistence of the finish. This, along with the concentration, makes me confident we will be seeing this in a P2 version, even though 15% of the potential Pinot Noir was left on the ground. Definitely not a weak vintage of Dom P. 2020-2030

Having had the pleasure to be one of the lucky few to try The Dom Perignon 2010 before it’s general release, all I can say is that it really surpassed my expectations and many thanks for the opportunity to try together with friends, and Nick Lane from Moethennessy.
Absolutely stunning bringing back a mix of memories of the previous 95, 03, and 06 Vintages. A nose and palate to die for, a delicious and balanced acidity, rich, crisp, creamy, fresh lemon zest, delicious and perfect refreshing finish reminding me of my favourite 95 Vintage. Very much ready to drink now which is testament to the creative genius of Vincent Chaperon and the Moethennessy team. I cannot wait to try it again!
