To celebrate the release of 2010 Dom Pérignon Champagne, we are pleased to collaborate with Moët Hennessy Diageo and Dom Pérignon to bring you a special dinner featuring the 2010 release vintage along with the extraordinary 2008, 2002 Plénitude 2 and Dom Pérignon Rosé 2006. 2010 was a challenging vintage with botrytis being a concern for Pinot Noir as the vintage saw a deluge of rain fall in a matter of a few days in mid-August making concern for disease and meticulous sorting essential; thus, many houses chose not to make this vintage. But, Dom Pérignon made the brave move to declare it. The blend is 54% Chardonnay and 46% Pinot Noir with 5 grams/litre dosage. If you want to experience 2010 Champagne this one is the one to try, and from the reviews it sounds like one that will be ready sooner than most vintages. Chef de Cave for Dom Pérignon, Vincent Chaperon, describes it as a Champagne with “generous fruitiness,” noting that it is “ample” and “open at this early stage of its life”.1
This dinner will focus exclusively on some of the most recent outstanding Champagnes brought to you by Dom Pérignon. Come join my colleague, Florian, along with guest speaker, Leo Jockovic, to learn about these recent outstanding offerings from Dom Pérignon.
