The 2012 Dom Pérignon is simply striking and sits along side 2008 and the one of the most impressive releases in recent years. It begins to captivate the senses with its striking aromas of pear, lemon, wild flowers, dried herbs and chalky minerals that all come together and burst out of the glass. On the palate this is laser focused with outstanding purity, gorgeous precision, and a stunning crystalline texture that is chisled and beaming with energy. It further impresses as it shows a remarkable combination of concentration and brightness before ending with a beautifully defined finish. This is a simply magical wine that is already drinking exceptionally well today.
