Dom Perignon 2009

The richness and ripeness of the vintage leaps out of the glass. You can even smell the sunshine. Smoky too. On the palate, there is no heaviness. Instead, the creamy-ish texture is laced with vigour, energy and freshness. Apart from the smoky notes, suggestion of quince, ripe apples, nectarines, and dried citrus peel. Full-bodied. Don’t serve too cold. Nor in a slender flute. Give the wine elbow room to open up in a white, or slightly more generous, glass.
