The 2009 Dom Pérignon is a simply fabulous effort from a challenging vintage in Champagne. The musty and earthy aromatics grab you straight away followed by wild mushrooms, brioche, poached pear and toasted hazelnut aromatics that impress. Incredibly balanced and with remarkable finesse, this showcases flavors of lemon zest, baked apple and marzipan with biscuit. Today this is just a touch youthful, needing some additinonal time to develop. Nonetheless this is a simply gorgeous Champagne with marvelous cellaring potential. Try to hold off on this stunner for at least two years. Disgorged in June 2016. Drink 2020-2040- 95

Got the attendant to save my palate and grab me a glass of 09 Dom out of 1st Class. The Emirates experience is very good overall. The car service pick up is excellent. The comfort in Business Class is quite spacious and comfortable. Service is good. The food was hit or miss depending on what you ordered. Overall, it could be better. Where they really missed; there were no hot towels before meals, wi-fi horrific and the Business Class wine list needs to be much better. Green apple, slightly bruised Bosc pear, lime candy, light color citrus blend, pineapple, ginger soda, baguette crust, beautiful firm pronounced chalkiness, penetrating grey volcanic minerals, well done acidity and an elegant, rich, well balanced finish that goes on & on.

Nice soft light yellow gold color. Consistent tiny bubbles. Fruit forward nose. Citrus notes. Some brioche. Young and not overly complex yet. Hello 2019!

All the fruit is in at Theorem. Our Voir Dire blocks came in heavier than expected and the fruit looks great, so we’re excited to see the 2018 become wine. As for the Dom, I tasted the 2006 at Promontory on Friday, followed by the 2009 later that day at Theorem and felt like the 2009 needed a little time, but after processing 8+ tons of fruit today, the 2009 was perfect. Both @Shay A and @Antonio Galloni ‘s notes are excellent and I have nothing to add other than it’s really, really delicious (harvest exhaustion affects the vocabulary...).

Absolutely delicious. Not super complex, but very easy to drink and enjoy, even at this very early stage. A terrific bottle of the 2009.
