The Dom Perignon Vintage 2006, a classic. Fresh, crystalline and sharp, immediately exuding class - beautifully presented in a luxury branded gift box.
On the palate, the wine instantly traces an astoundingly fine line between density and weightlessness. Its precision is extreme, tactile, dark and chiselled. The immediate impression is of the mildness of the pure, airy, bright bouquet. A floral, fruity pastel tone then unfolds and quickly darkens into candied fruit, ripe hay and toasted notes, along with hints of liquorice. The wine's opulence is contained, rounded and succulent, revealing itself in the mouth. The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy.
The whole experience eventually melts into an exquisite bitterness tinged with the briny taste of the sea. The full taste lingers with the utmost elegance on a sappy, spicy note.
