Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006: An intense taste of summer

The year was 2006 and the weather was mixed, but overall warm and dry. “July was scorching hot, August was unusually cool and wet,” said Pierre-Louis Araud, Brand Development Manager of Dom Pérignon. But this was the very setting that created the newly released exquisite Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006. 

“The almost summery weather in September made the vintage possible by drying out the few patches of botrytis and maturing the grapes for more than usual.”

The Vintage 2006 is Dom Pérignon’s fifth successive vintage champagne and adds to the brand’s unprecedented name when it comes to the best vintages made to perfection. Its texture is opulent, silky even, and eventually melts into an exquisiteness tinged with the briny taste of the sea on your palate. The taste of a floral and fruity bouquet is present at the first sip of the champagne before unfolding into candied fruit, ripe hay and toasted notes, along with hints of liquorice.

It could very well be your next go-to choice as the Vintage 2006 is, as chef de cave of Dom Pérignon, Richard Geoffroy describes it, a “superlative, luminous and glorious” vintage champagne.
