The 2004 Dom Perignon presents with aromas of almonds and powered cocoa which segue into white fruit with hints of dried flowers. On the palate, the wine traces a fine line between density and weightlessness. Its precision is extreme, tactile, dark and chiselled. The opulent taste lingers with elegance on a sappy, spicy note.

"The 2004 Dom Perignon continues to develop beautifully. A vibrant, focused Champagne, the 2004 clearly reflects the personality of the year. Freshly cut flowers, white peaches and pears are woven together in a Champagne that impresses for its focus and energy. Chiseled saline note support the crystalline finish. I imagine the 2004 will always remain relatively bright and linear, but at the same time, each time I have tasted it over the last two years the 2004 seems to have a little more body and broader shoulders. The 2004 will appeal most to readers who find the 2002 and 2003 too exuberant. There is a lot to like in the glass. "
