There is a saying that drinking Dom Perignon is like drinking stars. But can it really be right that a bottle of Champagne has so much aroma and taste that it is like drinking stars?

To find the answer, we have to go back precisely to 15 and 16 August 2010, when the equivalent of 2 months of rain fell in just two days. Catastrophic for the wine grapes in Champagne, which resulted in the vast majority of producers choosing to give up production in 2010 - the grapes were simply not good enough. However, it did not work out that way at Moët & Chandon , which is behind Dom Pérignon .

Here, Vincent Chaperon, who had recently taken over as cellar master for Dom Pérignon, chose that all resources should be used to save production. The grapes were hand-sorted and a smaller quantity was produced.. It should turn out to be worth it. Because the reviewers love Dom Pérignon Vintage 2010. Eg. Luca Gardini from World Champion Sommelier has given it a whopping 100 points , while James Stuckling and Intravino have given it 98 points. Such great reviews are very rarely seen.

But how does it taste?

The warm sweetness of tropical fruits - green mango, melon, pineapple - shines through immediately when poured. They then subside and make way for more temperate notes such as orange peel and tangerine.

To sum it all up, it is undoubtedly a champagne from the top shelf. Whether it tastes like stars, we will leave it up to you when you taste Dom Pérignon Vintage 2010.
