Champagne Moet Chandon Dom Perignon Brut 2013 (Pre-Arrival)  - First Bottle

Reviews

97 James Suckling -
Perfumed with apple, green mangoes, perfume and honeysuckle. Medium-bodied with a creamy and integrated texture and a subtle finish. Bitters. Botanicals. Intense. Drink or hold.
96 Wine Spectator -
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.
96 Decanter -
Silky, narrowly sculpted and serene, Dom Pérignon 2013 is a less hedonistic release than the 2012 (and less intensely energetic than the 2008), but showcases a beautiful mid-place between tension and expressiveness already. Orange-coloured fruit – apricots, mango and orange – play along with snappy lemon syrup and delicate red fruits, the palate teased into considerable detail and length with some trademark Dom Pérignon smokiness. There is immediate pleasure here, although cellaring will let some of the inner complexity unfurl, revealing this to the among the finest Dom Pérignon releases of recent times. 51% Pinot Noir, 49% Chardonnay.
95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Disgorged in October 2022, the 2013 Dom Pérignon is a charming and elegant vintage for this cuvée. It reveals complex aromas of buttery pastry, spices, citrus oil, almonds, honey and, with aeration, a touch of smoke. The palate is medium to full-bodied, perfectly balanced, with a chiseled and tightly wound profile. The long, cool growing season has brought freshness and a delicate earthy note to the finish.

Coming your way in Spring 2024...the newest vintage of the iconic Dom Pérignon! 2013 has turned out to be an epic Champagne vintage – one of the latest harvests in the past few decades produced some of the longest-lived, most intense, and utterly seamless Champagnes of this century. We haven’t seen a year like this since 2013...and some experts question whether we ever will again...97 points and over 40% off! Let’s go!

Dom Pérignon – the end all, be all of iconic Champagnes. When Champagne lovers the world over know you by your first name...you must be doing something right. People (mistakenly) credit the Benedictine monk from whom this exceptional cuvee derives its name with the creation of Champagne – and while that is certainly a myth, Dom Pierre Pérignon is nevertheless a righteously important figure in the history of Champagne. From being the first to blend different base wines for complexity and harmony, to utilizing a cork tree closure, to having the golden touch when it came to bottling to optimize the bubbly nature of your wine – he was unmatched for his day. The first vintage of his namesake cuvee wasn’t until over 200 years after his death – further showcasing his lasting impact on the wines of the times. In 1921, the first vintage was created, essentially a re-bottling of another Moët cuvee aged and bottled differently. In 1947, the production for Dom was made a completely separate process, and the rise in quality has been nothing short of meteoric.

2013 as a vintage has proven that patience, especially with great Champagne, is a virtue. Initially written off as a middling vintage hardly worthy of note, over time, the top houses, and top critics, have had to “about face” on their stance – now declaring 2013 to stand among the greatest Champagne vintages of the past 50 years. One of the latest harvests in recent memory (fruit wasn’t picked until September 28th)! 2013 has taken the benefits of an extremely long growing season, with droughts and heat spikes, rain and wind, and turned it all into a focused, linear and pristine vintage that showcases both concentration and ageability as few other vintages can boast.

Vincent Chaperon, cellar master of Dom Pérignon had this to say: “The 2013 vintage has 2008’s longevity built in, but without some of the obstinance and dominant acidity. The 2012 vintage on the other hand is hugely exciting, with plenty of maturity coupled with acidity, although tuned less towards classic, long-lived refinement and more towards a bustling, intense sort of ripeness [than the 2013].” Above all, he believes the hallmark of the 2013 vintage will be ‘integration’ – the sense that the wines will stay together beautifully over time. This is the new overriding sentiment regarding the 2013 vintage, with an additional note: there has not been a comparable vintage since (or even in the decade prior), and with the effects of climate change impact on the region, some openly wonder whether there will be a vintage quite like this in our lifetime! Whether that is as dooming as it sounds remains to be seen, but there is no question – this is as collectible a Dom Pérignon bottling as we’ve seen in some time! Very limited, so speak now to secure your bottles before they arrive this spring!

PAIRING IDEAS: C’mon...this is a gimmee. Caviar, Jeeves! With all the accouterments – buckwheat blinis, sieved eggs, creme fraiche, chives, shallots...go on and live it up!
