2005 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

SKU #1218651 97 points James Suckling

 I believe that the 2005 DP is the best since 2002, which remains the best recent vintage and is probably only eclipsed by the amazing 100-point 1996. The 2005 is a full-bodied DP with so much richness and loads of ripe fruit such as pineapple and papaya. It has a wonderful, creamy texture and a long and intense finish. It’s a Champagne that fully satisfies but at the same time challenges you with its strength, depth and persistence on the palate.  (7/2015)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Cellar Selection* With some age, this is a gloriously ripe and toasty wine. It has a rich character emphasized by the round texture and the creamy mousse. It also has great concentration, bringing together acidity as well as dense secondary flavors. With its rich, mature character, it is best suited for food. It is ready to drink, but will hold well through 2025. (RV)  (12/2015)

94 points Vinous

 The 2005 Dom Pérignon is lifted and precise throughout, with a classy, understated personality to match. Pear, apple, mint and white flowers are laced together in a finely-knit fabric of pure class. Two thousand five was a challenging vintage because of rot issues, especially in Pinot Noir. As a result, the 2005 Dom Pérignon is more than 60% Chardonnay, which is quite unusual. Soft, and open-knit, the 2005 is the most complete Dom Pérignon for drinking now among recent vintages. (AG)  (10/2015)

94 points Wine Spectator

 A rich version, with a streak of smoky minerality underscoring the flavors of clover honey, apple, blackberry and biscuit. Creamy in texture and persistent, presenting a long, sculpted finish. Drink now through 2030. (AG)  (9/2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Tasted blind. Mid gold. Intense savoury nose – more savoury than many stereotypical Doms on the nose... But excellent aroma. Just very slightly sweet on the mid palate. Improved in the glass. 2005? 17.5/20 points  (10/2015)

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity.

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
