Quick Overview

Very pale straw gold with surely the most discreet bubbles in the champagne world. Very different from the 2003. A much more recognisable Dom Pérignon sort of nose with fairly intense classic toastiness. Minerals and raciness rather than fruit and body. Marked acidity and even a little lean but very fine. There are notes of iodine and bitter orange peel. This wine really gets saliva flowing. The finish is not massively persistent but overall this is a very well mannered wine. A Chablis of a champagne - which 2003 definitely wasn't! (It was more of a Pouilly-Fuissé.) Drink 2013-2025. (18.5/20 points)

Details

'The 2006 Dom Pérignon continues to develop beautifully. A vibrant, focused Champagne, the 2005 clearly reflects the personality of the year. Freshly cut flowers, white peaches and pears are woven together in a Champagne that impresses for its focus and energy. Chiseled saline note support the crystalline finish. I imagine the 2005 will always remain relatively bright and linear, but at the same time, each time I have tasted it over the last two years the 2006 seems to have a little more body and broader shoulders. The 2005 will appeal most to readers who find the 2002 and 2003 too exuberant. There is a lot to like in the glass.' 96 Antonio Galloni
