2010 Dom Perignon X Lady Gaga Champagne 750ml
LIMITED EDITION, special packaging for Lady Gaga. A firm and vivid Champagne with a precise, focused palate. Full-bodied and dry. It’s very layered and bright with light pineapple, peach, praline, cooked-apple and stone aromas and flavors. It’s very subtle and focused at the end. Integrated with richness and high acidity. Good depth. Reminds me of the 1995. Very clean. Solid. Lovely to drink already, but will age nicely. Rated 98 Points James Suckling.
The Maison, Dom Perignon created the first vintage in 1921, inspired by Dom Pierre Perignon's vision of making the greatest wine in the world. It was released in 1936 for the first time. To create the "greatest wine in the world", only the finest grapes of Champagne are used they have access to the highest quality from the 17 Grand Cru vineyards, plus the historic Champagne vineyard at Hautvillers.
The Queendom that Lady Gaga and Dom Perignon bring to life is a radical expression of the electrifying, liberating power of creative freedom – a power they both embody and that we need more than ever. This universe is a celebration of creative freedom as a vital impulse that opens up new horizons for the world. It invites us to move forward and embrace this power for ourselves, to encourage it and affirm it for everyone to see.
Dom Pérignon Vintage 2010 was a bold wager, the fruit of an unwavering commitment to expressing nature, coupled with the freedom that makes audacious endeavors possible.
Dom Pérignon pairs beautifully with seafood and fish such as oysters, scallops, and sea bass; and meats such as veal, quail, and foie gras. It also pairs well with cheese such as parmesan, vegetables such as leeks, truffles, and mushrooms, and herbs and spices including ginger, cumin, and saffron.
On the Nose:
The luminous sweetness of tropical fruit – green mango, melon, pineapple – instantly shines. It then cedes to more temperate notes, the tingle of orange zest, the mist of a mandarin orange. The wine breathes, revealing its freshness. The bloom after the rain. A tactile sensation of peony, jasmine and lilac.
On the Palate:
The wine immediately imposes its ample presence, full and massive. A sappy sensation dominates as the tactile is rapidly overtaken by the aromatic. The body unfolds: generous, firm and controlled. Then it contracts, letting the wine vibrate with spices and pepper.
