Heiner Lobenberg über:
Champagne Dom Perignon 2012


Lobenberg: Der 2012er Dom Perignon wurde von Parker Verkoster Kelley sogar noch über den legendären 2008er gesetzt, was ihn zu einem der höchstbewerteten überhaupt macht. Üppiges Bukett mit Brioche- und Haselnussnuancen. Im Mund kommt neben der Feine Perlage. Intensives Geschmackserlebnis mit langem Nachhall. Ein Erlebnis!!! 97-98/100


Decanter über: Champagne Dom Perignon

-- Decanter: What a magnificent bouquet for this Dom Pérignon 2012! Pastry, a hint of smoke and autolytic notes provide a compelling counterpart to eager yet elegant aromas of citrus (lime, tangerine and kumquat) joined by those of fresh fruit, herbs, liquorice, and menthol. There is even a refreshing note of ivy. The palate is tense, vibrant, and very fresh despite its impressive density, which meets its match with an unending finish. This 2012 incarnates the very essence of Dom Pérignon with such a concentrated degree of intensity, along with a capacity for ageing, that it is surely destined for a second life in a P2 edition. 98/100


Galloni über: Champagne Dom Perignon

-- Galloni: The 2012 Dom Pérignon is a dense, powerful wine. I am almost shocked by its vinous intensity and raw, unbridled power. The 2012 reminds me of the 2003, but with more finesse and not quite as pushed. Mildew, rain and frost were challenges and resulted in low yields, something that was further compounded by warm, dry weather that concentrated the fruit even more. Those qualities result in a dense Dom Pérignon endowed with real phenolic intensity. It is one of the most reticent young Doms I can remember tasting, I wouldn’t even think of opening a bottle for at least a few years. 97/100


Suckling über: Champagne Dom Perignon

-- Suckling: Wonderful elegance and balance to this Dom Pérignon with cooked apple, lemon and hints of white pepper and salt. It’s medium-bodied with really fine bubbles and balance. Spicy at the end. So wonderfully fresh, linear and long. Racy and elegant. A DP that invites to drink right now. All about finesse. Tension, too, with precise phenolics and bright acidity on the back palate. Subtle energy. Drinkable now, but will develop beautifully in the bottle. 97/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Champagne Dom Perignon

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2012 Champagne is 51% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Noir and has 4 grams per liter dosage. Its style is finessed and elegant, revealing a soft, smoky perfume of fresh white flowers, pear, and fresh bread dough. The palate is focused and long, with a polished mousse, and offers notes of lime blossom, white peach, and chalky minerality as well as long perfume resonating on the finish. Drink 2024-2044. 97/100


Parker über: Champagne Dom Perignon

-- Parker: The 2012 Dom Pérignon has turned out very well indeed, unwinding in the glass with notes of Anjou pear, smoke, toasted nuts, freshly baked bread and crisp stone fruit. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, it's still tightly wound, its incipiently fleshy core of fruit framed by racy acids and chalky grip, complemented by a classy pinpoint mousse. A touch drier and a touch less reductive than the 2008 out of the gates, these two vintages are clearly destined to be compared for some time to come; but at this early stage, my instinct is that the 2012 will have the edge in the long term. 96+/100


Wine Spectator über: Champagne Dom Perignon

-- Wine Spectator: This eloquent Champagne has an enticing waft of Mandarin orange on the nose that continues on the palate, which is layered with flavors of crushed blackberry and cassis, toast, chopped almond, graphite and oyster shell. A bright, finely-knit and harmonious version, with a lovely, raw silk-like mousse, and a lasting, expressive finish. Drink now through 2037. 96/100


Tim Atkin über: Champagne Dom Perignon

-- Tim Atkin: 51% Pinot Noir, 49% Chardonnay. 2012's intense, concentrated energy suits Dom Pérignonto a tee, the trademark grilled-citrus reductive energy truly alive in the aromatic profile atthis stage, with the golden tones of mature Pinot Noir feeling rather fine and delicate for theyear. The plushness of mocha and toasted sourdough is just coming on, and the mousse hassettled into a gliding, silky joy. On the one hand this is bright and approachable, but on theother hand there is a long-term prospect borne as much of compressed structure as mineraltension. A super Dom Pérignon. 96/100


Weinwisser über: Champagne Dom Perignon

-- Weinwisser: Opulente, ziemlich offene Nase mit reifen gelben Früchten, gerösteten Nüssen, frisch gebackener Brioche, aufgeschlagener Butter und Salzzitrone. Ziemlich dicht und schmelzig geht es auch am Gaumen weiter, tief und konzentriert, wirkt zunächst etwas von der Frucht getragen, wird dann mit Luft deutlich straffer und vor allem mineralischer mit der typischen Kreide- und Salzluftnote, ziemlich präsente Säure, sehr griffig, im Finale dann wieder kreidig und mit herrlicher Gelbfrucht. Noch sehr jugendlich, würde diesen Champagner tatsächlich vorsichtig karaffieren. Kann noch zulegen. 19/20


Jancis Robinson über: Champagne Dom Perignon

-- Jancis Robinson: The 2012 vintage has a great reputation but it surmounted all sorts of challenges: frost in winter and spring, torrential rains, hailstorms and cold spells while the vines were flowering, plus intense heatwaves during the summer – but at least these last left the grapes healthy. Harvest stretched from 10 to 26 September. As usual, they are tight-lipped about the exact composition of the blend. Classic lemon-zest and tension nose that I associate with Dom Pérignon, but with extra weight and depth. And quite marked phenolics on the end which suggest this will have a remarkably long life. And, as Vincent Chaperon readily admitted, will definitely show up as a P2 star. Clean and neat and with light smokiness on the finish. Dom P always plays the reduction card. Hugely impressive persistence. Still a baby. 18,5+/20
