“Brothers come quickly, I’m drinking the stars!” The immortal words of Dom Pierre Pérignon, the Benedectine monk popularly responsible for the creation of sparkling wine. Even though in the modern era we’ve found this tale to not entirely be true, it’s still a lovely story. The wines which bear his name need no introduction.
When you think of Champagne a few houses come to mind immediately, and no matter where you are in the world Dom Pérignon is regarded as one of the finest names in Champagne. We adore these wines, especially when they have started to pick up their secondary characteristics. To that end we have stored some to offer as they start to reach their drinkability.

The 2004 Dom Pérignon is from a classic vintage and a very generous year in terms of yields. White-golden in color, the clear, discreet and subtle nose gives way to dried white rather than yellow fruits, raisins and hazelnuts, as well as to floral and herbal aromas. Less generous and concentrated in the mouth than the 2005 and austerely dry at the moment, the 2004 shows its great finesse and characteristic minerality. There should be a better point of time to praise its class, so trust and keep it!
