About this Item

Brut, 2004
1 (1 x 1) 750ml
Dom Pérignon is produced by Moët & Chandon - one of the largest Champagne producers in the world. The name Dom Pérignon comes from a 17th-century monk who developed various winemaking techniques which were used to enhance the quality of wines. Dom Pérignon Champagnes always consist of Pinot noir, Chardonnay, and one other grape variety. The Champagne is always a vintage as each bottle showcases the vintage’s unique characteristics.

Critics Ratings

‘The 2004 Dom Pérignon is one of the more reductive, autolytic vintages of this wine to have been released in the last decade, offering up a toasty bouquet of pears, green apple, iodine, peach and smoke. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny textured and fleshy, with a sweet core of fruit, a fine mousse and a vinous profile. The 2004 is an excellent and classically proportioned example of Dom Pérignon.’ - William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 94/100 (Apr 2020)

‘53% Pinot Noir, 47% Chardonnay. Delicious hint of struck-match reduction with firm citrus behind that. Similar on the palate, with strong echoes of white burgundy even though the bead is fine and noticeable. Fine notes of orange emerge. Terrific harmony of power and elegance, flavour and finesse.’ - Julia Harding MW, Jancis.Robinson.com, 18.5/20 (Jun 2014)
