We love Dom Perignon here at Hook and Ford. It is the perfect example of Vintage Champagne at its best. Delicate and full of nuance, yet intense in its flavours. It will leave a lasting impression on you!

The 2006 is a very serious Dom Perignon with tightly wound acid and lots of power. This is wonderful now but should develop beautifully over the next 20 years. 

Jancis Robinson gives this 18.5/20:

Very tightly knit. On the nose one of the most characteristic Dom Pérignons to have come my way for a while (though two much more mature examples offered a similar marriage of introversion and sensuality). Both pungently smoky and tense with some broad brioche notes as well as a suggestion of lime zest. On the palate it's quite a contrast to all the Extra Bruts I have been tasting recently! Much richer on the palate entry though there is delicate lemon-cream refreshment on the mid palate. Very fine bead and satisfying aftertaste that builds even if I'm pretty sure this aspect of the wine will become more emphatic with time in bottle. Bravo!

Back label says this is the ‘First Plénitude’ of Dom P, having been aged for nine years. 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay. Bright pale slightly greenish straw. Rich, very tightly laced nose with many layers and great density – on the nose. Real excitement here with some tension. Some unashamed richness underneath but excellent freshness too. Something quite electric about this. Almost unfurled. You could certainly drink this with pleasure already but there is clearly lots tucked away here for future development. Impressively long and reverberant.

Vinous gives this 97/100:

The 2006 Dom Pérignon is a beautifully balanced, harmonious Dom Pérignon that strikes an incredibly appealing stylistic middle ground. Rich, voluptuous and creamy, the 2006 shows off fabulous intensity in a style that brings together the ripeness of 2002 with the greater sense of verve and overall freshness that is such a signature of the 2004. Bass notes and a feeling of phenolic grip on the finish recall the 2003, as the Pinot Noir is particularly expressive today. After an irregular summer that saw elevated temperatures in July followed by cooler, damp conditions in August, more favorable weather returned in September, pushing maturation ahead and leading to a long, protracted harvest. The 2006 falls into the family of riper, more voluptuous Dom Pérignons, but without veering into the level of opulence seen in vintages such as 2002.
