In this video, Attorney Somm reviews the 2010 Dom Perignon, which was recently released. Attorney Somm discusses the 2010 vintage in Champagne, his tasting notes for the 2010 Dom Perignon and also provides buying strategies both for the 2010 Dom Perignon and also for Dom Perignon generally.
2010 was a difficult vintage in Champagne. Many Champagne houses did not declare a vintage. Despite the difficult weather conditions, Dom Perignon was able to produce an outstanding Champagne.
The 2010 Dom Perignon has pleasing tropical fruit flavors but also plenty of refreshing acidity to balance the fruit. This is a rich, full-bodied Champagne with a strong mid-palate and a long, complex finish.
Following my tasting notes for the 2010 Dom Perignon, I discuss how to collect vintage Dom Perignon and my recommended Dom Perignon buying strategy. My preference is to taste Dom Perignon after extended bottle aging post-release. So I recommend buying a quantity of bottles on release and then aging them yourself in the cellar for 10 years or more.
