Blend and Origin
Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009
Winemakers had to overcome many obstacles and take risks on their way to encouraging the chardonnay and pinot noir grapes of the 2009 harvest to reach their fullest expression. A harsh winter was followed by a mild and rainy spring, and inclement weather in July raised fears for the grapes’ health. A perfect August, however, helped the fruits to emerge magnificently mature and healthy.
Calling out for salty foods with texture
Try a saffron-scented fish soup with a sprinkling of toasted almonds for added bite.
Octopus marinated in orange juice and roasted in butter, served alongside a peppery arugula salad, is an ideal main course.
Match the ripeness of this vintage with a dish of caramelized pineapple with honey ice cream.
