This Dom Pérignon Vintage is a champagne produced by one of the houses of the Moët Hennessy group. The 2006 vintage has a yellow color. Its strong nose offers scents of yellow fruit (mirabelle plum) evolving towards hazelnuts and white fruit. The mouth of this Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006 is full and offers fine bubbles. There are complex aromas (yellow fruits, flowers and white fruits, hazelnut) associated in the end with some creamy hints. A champagne winemaker once advised me to leave the champagne in the glass for ten minutes to grasp all its complexity. The tasting of this long-lasting 2006 Dom Pérignon Vintage was a typical example of the benefits of this advice.
