This is the first time that the iconic champagne brand has broken the order of its releases, with Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy announcing the launch of 2009 Dom PÃ©rignon before the 2008 vintage.
The 2009 vintage is characterized by â€œfruit, glorious fruitâ€, said Geoffroy. He added that it was a warm vintage.
â€œDom PÃ©rignon 2009 would certainly not be what it is without the experience gained while producing Dom PÃ©rignon Vintage 2003,â€ he said. Oenophiles will recall 2003 was a particularly hot year.
When blending the vins clairs, Geoffroy notedÂ that the â€œPinot Noir was particularly goodâ€. The wine spent seven years on its lees in the cellar before bottling and release. The last Dom PÃ©rignon vintage was 2006 which was released in 2015. The House did not produce a 2007 vintage for Dom PÃ©rignon.
