The 2012 Dom Pérignon is a brilliant wine in the making and seems likely to ultimately
be judged one of the greatest vintages here in the last quarter century. According to Chef de
Cave Vincent Chaperon, the wine is close to its ideal cépages of fifty percent each of
chardonnay and pinot noir in 2012. The wine is quite a powerful vintage of Dom Pérignon, but
with all of the customary elegance and structural chassis of the greatest vintages here and it
remains a young wine, brimming with energy and superb depth. The bouquet wafts from the
glass in a classic blend of lime, green apple, menthol, stony minerality, discreet botanical tones,
gentle smokiness and a topnote of citrus peel. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied,
focused and complex, with a great core, superb mineral drive and grip, utterly refined mousse
and a long, zesty and beautifully balanced finish. I love how the perfect ripeness of the 2012
vintage is seamlessly interwoven here with a superb girdle of acidity, great minerality and
excellent purity, which will end up producing a legendary vintage of this wine. It is certainly
approachable out of the blocks, but I would opt to tuck bottles away for at least eight to ten more
years before starting to drink the 2012, as there is so much left here to still unfold. 2029-2075+.

Wonderful elegance and balance to this Dom Pérignon with cooked apple, lemon and hints of white pepper and salt. It’s medium-bodied with really fine bubbles and balance. Spicy at the end. So wonderfully fresh, linear and long. Racy and elegant. A DP that invites to drink right now. All about finesse. Tension, too, with precise phenolics and bright acidity on the back palate. Subtle energy. Drinkable now, but will develop beautifully in the bottle.

Vinous Media: 97 Points

The 2012 Dom Pérignon is a dense, powerful wine. I am almost shocked by its vinous intensity and raw, unbridled power. The 2012 reminds me of the 2003, but with mo

The 2012 Champagne is 51% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Noir and has 4 grams per liter dosage. Its style is finessed and elegant, revealing a soft, smoky perfume of fresh white flowers, pear, and fresh bread dough. The palate is focused and long, with a polished mousse, and offers notes of lime blossom, white peach, and chalky minerality as well as long perfume resonating on the finish. Drink 2024-2044.

Wine Spectator: 96 Points

This eloquent Champagne has an enticing waft of Mandarin orange on the nose that continues on the palate which is layered with flavors of crushed blackberry and cassis toast chopped almond graphite and oyster shell. A bright finely-knit and harmonious version with a lovely raw silk-like mousse and a lasting expressive finish. Drink now through 2037.
