THE VINTAGE: A grey and cloudy sky hangs over 2008, a unique year in an incredibly giving and sunny decade. Spring and summer were also marked by lack of light and low temperatures. The month of September, belatedly and miraculously, made the vintage. When the harvest began (15th of September), the weather conditions were finally perfect: blazing sunlight and strong north/north-east winds. In order to best take advantage of such a turn of events, the harvest was spread out. The ripeness levels of the grapes had exceeded all expectations, presenting an unprecedented balance. The state of health is impeccable.

ON THE NOSE: The bouquet opens instantly with raspberry and wild strawberry. Pesistent powdery notes of iris and violet immediately blend with the fruit aromas. When breathing in the aromas, we finally notice the emergence of greener nuances, evoking privet, angelica and camphor leaf.

ON THE PALATE: The initial sensations are tactile, full-bodied and silky. They gradually unfold, becoming more firm. The acidic framework, the signature of the vintage, weaves itself into the structure of the Pinot Noir and reveals the very core of the wine. The finish is assertive and lingers with notes of peony and white pepper.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


James Suckling - "This shows incredible depth of fruit with strawberry, cherry and phenolics. Full-bodied and layered with an incredible, three-dimensional element to the wine. This is so transparent and dynamic with dark fruit, yet it remains vivid and bright. Refined and precise, it goes on and on. Really savory, fresh and incredibly pinot-noir-like. What a wine. 13 years of maturation in the bottle. So drinkable now, but it will age for many years ahead."


Vinous - "The 2008 Dom Pérignon Rosé is magnificent. 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. There is a classic feeling of austerity in the 2018 that is mesmerizing."


Wine Spectator - "An impeccably balanced and graceful sparkling rosé 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. Drink now through 2033"


Decanter - "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."
