2010 was far from an easy vintage for the vignerons of the most illustrious sparkling wine region on Earth. Extraordinarily heavy rainfall in August decimated the black varieties across Champagne, resulting in Chardonnay cutting a messianic figure for many Grande Marques. A very many Champagne houses chose not to declare a vintage in 2010 - Moët & Chandon is not the average maison however. Such was the reach, skill and influence of the region’s largest producer that Dom Pérignon 2010 is a sensational wine.

 

Pinot Noir yield was a full 20% lower than average – fortunately, the titanic Moët & Chandon’s numerous Grand Cru sites produced exceptional Chardonnay. Very unusually, and initially, at least out of necessity, Dom Pérignon was comprised of higher proportion of Chardonnay in the wine, resulting in a blend of 54% Chardonnay and only 46% Pinot Noir.

 

This unusual blend has proved highly successful. Champagne expert Essi Avellan MW awarded Dom Pérignon 2010 a fantastic 95-97 points, hailing it as “gorgeous… impeccably crisp” with a “superbly saline and perfectly pristine finish”.

 

Drawing a superb 18.5/20 points from the consistently conservative Jancis Robinson MW as well as an outstanding 98 points from James Suckling, this Dom Pérignon is as fitting an illustration of snatching victory from the jaws of defeat as one could wish for!

About Dom Pérignon

The fable of the legendary 17th-century monk who invented champagne crying that he had "tasted the stars" is a familiar one to many oenophiles across the globe. Regrettably, this story is almost certainly inaccurate - his name does, however, live on as the prestige cuvée of powerhouse Champagne Maison Moët & Chandon.

 

First released by the famed house in 1937, this wine represents the culmination of rigorous selection and review processes in both the vineyard and the winery. Thanks to its size and reach, Moët & Chandon has a remarkable choice of absolutely outstanding Grands and 1ers Crus from which to source the grapes for its greatest cuvée.
