The 2000 Dom Pérignon is a gorgeous wine to drink now, as it is already showing quite a bit of aromatic and flavor complexity. Although the 2000 doesn’t have the multi-dimensional personality or structure of the very best DPs, it does offer tremendous drinking pleasure today. Hints of pastry, baked apple and mint add nuance, with a touch of reduction that lends an added kick of freshness. Ultimately, the 2000 is a very drinkable and delicious Dom Pérignon.

The original cuvée disgorged in 2007. Richard Geoffroy took over from Dominique Foulon in 2000 and was told, you won’t have same vintage on both Grand Vintage and Dom P but this turned out not to be the case. Fresh and quite open and developed. Dry finish. Lightly oxidatively dried sensation but on the finish very rewarding.
