There is always huge anticipation with every release from the Grande Marques, but most rightly so for Dom Pérignon's latest release of their vintage 2010 as this is the very first vintage that was fully managed by Vincent Chaperon, the house's new Chef de Cave. Though hailing from a family of Pomerol in Bordeaux, Vincent Chaperon decided to establish his career in Champagne, and was given the opportunity to work alongside the house's previous Chef de Cave, Richard Geoffroy, since 2005, on 13 harvests and 4 vintages - the 2005, 2006, 2009 and the 2008. Having taken the reins from Richard in January 2019, he spoke of his dreams for Dom Pérignon. Despite keeping to the house's style and traditions, he aims to also "push the boundaries, to make the wine grow, to make it more intense, deeper, longer, wider” as said during an interview with Hong Kong Tatler last year.
The 2010 was a challenging vintage due to the rigorous Winter, dry and late Spring and the huge downpour of rain after a mildly hot Summer which led to development of mold on the grapes. It drove the house to race against time and make quick and precise decisions with every little step counting towards the make-or-break of the vintage. Not many houses dared to declare a vintage in 2010, but it is Dom Pérignon’s amazing technique and experience that they were able to create a beautiful Champagne even under these less desirable conditions. They carefully selected Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from 17 Grand Cru sites and the iconic Hautvilliers Premier Cru to create this very unique vintage, and kept the wine in their cellars for 8 years before they disgorged it last year, allowing the Champagne to develop and gain the complexity to become this stunning 2010 Champagne that we know we will love.
Immediately enjoyable but will be able to be aged for many more years, this vintage has received high praise from wine critics Jancis Robinson and James Suckling. Undoubtedly a truly exciting Champagne to collect and to drink, we are pleased to announce that the Dom Pérignon 2010 is now available for order, with an ETA of just 1-2 weeks -

Amazingly, obviously, Dom P on the nose –the powerful lemon-mousse nose came soaring out of the glass long before my nose got anywhere near it.Definitely not a weak vintage of Dom P.

It’s very subtle and focused at the end... Good depth. Reminds me of the 1995... Lovely to drink already, but will age nicely. Subject to final confirmation. ETA 1-2 weeks.
