The 2013 Dom Pérignon is characterised by daintiness and restraint. Its aromas of apricot, tangerine peel, white flowers, jasmine, mint and subtle honeyed hues coalesce harmoniously. In addition to its intense vinous notes, it is joyfully accessible, making it a pleasure to consume. The well-rounded taste is both tactile and gentle, with a richness that lingers on the palate. This is an experience to be savoured and enjoyed and the complexity of flavours can be appreciated by both connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike.
"Intense, lightly spicy nose and then on the palate very smooth-textured, gentle and lifted, with light bitterness on the finish – grapefruit peel? Some lightly vegetal notes and very long. Seamless texture and already very agreeable." Drink now to 2032 - 18.5/20 - Jancis Robinson MW
"Vivid acidity and a chalky underpinning make a crystalline frame for finely detailed notes of ripe melon, mandarin orange, toasted brioche and candied ginger in this harmonious Champagne, which is expressive and expansive on the palate, but with a sense of finesse and restraint. Long and creamy on the mineral-laced finish." Drink now through 2037 - 96/100 - Wine Spectator
"A driven and serious DP with aromas of chalk, biscuits, apricot stones and lemons. Some spice and dried flowers, too. So sleek and sophisticated. Elegant. Yet, it’s long and powerful, with a sharp minerality. Tight and precise. Reminds me of bottles from the 1980s, such as 1988. It really takes off." 98/100 - James Suckling
"Disgorged in October last year, the 2013 Dom Pérignon is a lovely wine, defined by the long, cool growing season. Offering up aromas of crisp stone fruit, tangerine oil, buttered toast, pear, almonds and clear honey, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and seamless, with bright acids and a pillowy, enveloping profile, concluding with a long, saline finish. Vincent Chaperon recalls that shatter at fruit set moderated yields and that a drying east wind in the weeks before harvest helped to maintain the good sanitation necessary to wait to pick at full maturity." 95+/100 - robertparker.com
