The 2004 Dom Perignon Champagne is utterly brilliant at fifteen years of age. It instantly begins to impress as it shows a downright sexy golden hue, the wine evolves quickly once in the glass. Displaying a dazzling array of aromatics, from orchard fruits to peat moss and toasty brioche as well as shades of salted Marcona almond that all nicely meld together. The palate yields a wonderful combination of richness and tension as well as a lovely ripe, almost unctuous texture. Flavors of salted macadamia nut, ripe pear, kumquat zest and shades of Shiitake mushroom and lighter biscuit undertones all combine seamlessly. The 2004 is an absolutely satisfying, downright hedonistic champagne that will be extremely long-lived.
