2006 Dom Perignon Brut Rose Champagne
ON THE NOSE: The bouquet is mesmerising, ripe, and deep. The opening notes are a blend of dark spicy notes and cocoa which develop very quickly into fruit aromas. Fruit reigns supreme, with roasted fig and apricot and candied orange. The overall effect exudes smoky accents.
ON THE PALATE: The fullness of this wine is immediately striking. Its intensity and succulence set the tone through the sweetness and crispness of the flavors. The silky mouthfeel melts into a smooth, tight, and grainy structure with just a hint of vegetable flavors. This wine expresses an appealing brininess and saline character.
Vinous - "The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is every bit as captivating as it was last year, maybe even more so. At times powerful, but in other moments finessed, the 2006 constantly changes in the glass, revealing a different shade of its personality with every taste. Perhaps most importantly, the 2006 seems to have gained a level of precision and pure sophistication it did not show last year, when it was quite a bit less put together. Back then, the 2006 was a wine of tremendous potential; today that potential is starting to be realized. Quite simply, the 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is a magical Champagne. Don’t miss it. 97+"
Wine Spectator - "This graceful 2006 shows lovely freshness, featuring a pronounced note of pink grapefruit granita layered with finely detailed accents of toasted nut, lemon thyme, smoky mineral and crystallized honey. Plushly creamy in texture, with a steely streak of acidity well-knit throughout and firming the lasting, spiced finish. Drink now through 2029."
Robert Parker - “The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is showing well, offering up an expressive bouquet of bitter orange, red berries, apple and a delicate hint of dried flowers and herbs. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and broad, with a fine mousse, ripe acids and chalky phenolic structure, especially on the finish, which testifies to the fully 20% of still red wine that was included in the blend. This is a vinous, gastronomic rosé that numbers among the decided successes of the 2006 vintage.”
James Suckling - “Loads of complexity on offer here, from brioche to dried peaches to strawberries and cream and on to rhubarb fool, pomegranate pastries and bread crumbs. The mousse is wonderfully integrated to the edgy peaches and notes that feather the finest line between oxidation and reduction. Very layered and linear, this is an incredibly long and mind-bending Champagne.”
Decanter- “Where sometimes red fruits dominate and bully the palate of a rosé Champagne, with Dom Pérignon they relax and take a back seat to a nose dominated by spices, figs and the orange grove. The subtlety captured in the gentle rose-gold hue echoes down the palate: softly smoky, richly complex and exceptionally long. ‘Succulent and structured’ according to Vincent Chaperon, its teasing and almost saline bitterness on the finish underwrites seriousness of intent and gastronomic potential, and presages a long and illustrious future. Drinking Window 2019 – 2030.”
