We are delighted to offer a lovely new parcel of Dom Perignon 2010 in rare and collectable magnums. Made in much smaller quantities versus regular bottles, magnums of Dom Perignon are incredibly desirable, and with scores of up to 98 points from the critics, these big bottles of the 2010 vintage will be no exception.
Dom Perignon is revered for good reason, it is consistently world-class in quality. 2010 was a tricky vintage in Champagne, but Dom Perignon transcends it and is “full-bodied and grows on the palate, with intensity and maturity. Goes on for a long time” for James Suckling, who awards it 98 points.
Richard Juhlin is also a fan saying, “This is a wonderful wine right from the start” and “is very reminiscent of how the legendary ’82 performed at launch. The scent is extremely generous and rich in deliciously inviting notes of roasted coffee beans, orange chocolate, nougat, mandarin, lily plants, freshly baked baguette and Madeleine cookies”. With 1982 being a famous vintage in Champagne, this is high praise.

This is a wine that risks being misjudged due to the slightly unknown reputation of the vintage. I think a lot of people will jump straight from the classically cool, elegant 2008 to 2012, but please don’t! This is a wonderful wine right from the start with a much longer joyful life ahead than most people would expect. The problem with the vintage is related to colossal rainfall on August 15th and 16th which caused problems with botrytis. If you, like Dom Pérignon’s eminent team, accepted 20% lower harvest yield and had ice in the stomach and harvested their pinot noir a few weeks later and also concentrated their selection on the steepest slope with good drainage, you could create magically fine wines with impressively high figures. The maturity and concentration of this wine is extremely impressive and the acidity is significantly higher than that experienced on the palate. Here is a richness and natural sweetness even though the dosage is only 5.3 grams / liter. Bouzy, Mailly and, above all, the chalky and precise Verzenay have been given more room than usual to compensate and balance up the Burgundian sun-ripened chardonnay that was used as a base when the cuvée was created. This wonderful wine is very reminiscent of how the legendary ’82 performed at launch. The scent is extremely generous and rich in deliciously inviting notes of roasted coffee beans, orange chocolate, nougat, mandarin, lily plants, freshly baked baguette and madeleine cookies. At the same time, there are exciting darker overnotes of mushroom cream, undergrowth and petroleum-like features of diesel fumes. The taste is impressively full with a super concentrated sweet & fruity boost with elements of both exotic fruits, sweet citrus and peach. This richness is embedded as usual in a seamless cocoon of silky texture with fine depth. Notice that the finish is paradoxically fresh with a little tannin that guarantees that this mighty wine will hold up very well in the cellar despite already showing impressive maturity with striking aromatic similarities to the 1998 P2. www.champagneclub.com
