Palate Profile

Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2008 is part of a solar decade. Yet in the heart of this period, the year stands apart. Spring and summer were gray and overcast, leading to a deficit of warmth, as well as light. And then miraculously – as in 2000 or 2006, and the mythic 1996 vintage – September’s sun and winds completely reversed the situation. The eagerly awaited maturity of the grapes burst through, thriving with an unprecedented high-toned balance.

The bouquet bursts with raspberries and wild strawberries. Persistent powdery notes of iris and violet immediately meld with the fruit aromas. After breathing, greener nuances arrive, evoking privet, angelica and camphor tree.

The initial flavours are tactile, full-bodied and silky as they unfold, gradually becoming bolder. The acidic foundation that is the signature of the vintage weaves into the structure of the pinot noir, vibrating the heart of the wine. The affirmed, persistent finish is redolent of peonies and white pepper.

Critic Awards

Shows incredible depth of fruit with strawberry, cherry and phenolics. Full-bodied and layered with an incredible, three-dimensional element to the wine. Really savory, fresh and incredibly pinot-noir-like. 13 years of maturation in the bottle. So drinkable now, but it will age for many years ahead.

Impeccably balanced and graceful with a plushly creamy mousse. It's hard to tell where the firm spine of well-honed acidity and the expressive range of pureed raspberry, candied ginger, tangerine and lemon thyme flavors begin or end. A rich hint of smoky toasted brioche plays on the finish.

The 2008 Dom Perignon Rose is a dramatic, perfumed wine, bursting with aromas of blood orange, iodine, sweet citrus fruit, peach and pear mingled with hints of buttered toast, smoke and spices. Full-bodied, textural and enveloping, with terrific concentration, racy acids and a pillowy mousse, it concludes with a long, penetrating finish.

Rich and deep in the glass, the 2008 offers up an exotic mélange of aromas and flavors. Sweet red cherry, mint, orange peel and rose petal all grace this beguiling beauty. Bright acids and a little less still red Pinot (21%) than in most recent editions yields a Rosé that is delicate and light on its feet, with less of the vinous intensity that marked vintages such as 2006.

Offering up aromas of white flowers, red berries, toast and fresh pastry, Dom Pérignon rosé 2008 is medium to full-bodied, tense and vibrant, with a vinous texture and sapid nuances. Delicately phenolic, this is a pure and racy gastronomic Champagne that’s beginning to drink with style, and concludes with a long and penetrating finish.
