Dom Pérignon liberated the 2008 vintage with a bold assemblage created with pinot noir grapes. Whose fruit and structure balance the tension between the precision and natural radiance of the wines with more body and weight.
The bouquet bursts forth 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 sensations are tactile, full-bodied and silky as they unfold like a caress, 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.
Gray, overcast skies dominated the viticultural year in 2008, a notable exception in a decade of brazenly generous sun. Spring and summer were marked by a relentless lack of both light and warmth. And then, September made the vintage thanks to a late and miraculous spell of beautiful weather. As the harvest began on September 15, conditions were at last perfect – bright sunshine and sustained north to north-easterly winds. Grape picking continued over an extended period to take full advantage of this unexpected gift. The maturity of the grapes surpassed all expectations, revealing an exceptional high-toned balance.
FOOD & WINE PAIRING
Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2008 is an invitation to explore frontiers in winemaking, and boundaries of gastronomic experiences. With Alain Ducasse and Albert Arià as part of the ADMO partnership, we have created an ideal pairing of cauliflower lightly coated with black mole, inspired by Mexican cuisine with its preparation of cocoa, grilled herbs and spices. This gives a spicy, concentrated, rich and challenging aspect that the wine loves for its depth, structure and bodied ingredients.
