Dom Pérignon : Rosé Vintage Coffret Gold 2000
Dom Pérignon champagne owes its name to the famous monk and prosecutor of the Abbey of Hautvillers in 1668, Pierre Pérignon known as Dom Pérignon. According to the legend, Pierre Pérignon discovered what we call today the champagne method. For the anecdote, he will teach this method in 1669 to the Benedictine Thierry Ruinart, which will thus allow Ruinart to become historically the first Champagne house in 1729. Since January 1, 2019, Vincent Chaperon has succeeded Richard Geoffroy as Dom Pérignon's Chef de Caves.
Dom Pérignon's Rosé Vintage Coffret Gold 2000 is from a singular vintage. The year 2000 was hot, with below average temperatures in July and a humid climate. The Chardonnay grapes harvested were supple, ample and complex. As for the Pinot Noir, it appeared structured and had a nice length in the mouth.
This Rosé Vintage Coffret Gold 2000 from Dom Pérignon is made from a secret blend of pinot noir and chardonnay.
The robe is deep with a beautiful amber color.
The first nose is very floral and gives way to notes of cherry and candied lemon with cocoa and a touch of smoke, all forming a beautiful aromatic complexity.
In the mouth, the palate is structured and classic with a feeling of balance and a beautiful aromatic persistence. This champagne is surprisingly fresh and brightly fruity with a subtle touch of bitterness. This superb champagne is presented in an extremely luxurious packaging, with a setting of petals dipped in a rose gold bath, according to the traditional French goldsmith techniques. It is a real rarity, only 50 copies exist.
Wine review Dom Pérignon : Rosé Vintage Coffret Gold 2000 : Parker 96/100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2000 Dom Perignon Rose is a flashy, ripe Champagne that screams Pinot to a degree I have never encountered in another vintage of this wine. A dark, intense color leads to a Chambolle-like nose followed by endless red berries, flowers and spices, all backed up with plenty of muscle, richness and density. The wine continues to blossom on the palate, with utterly beguiling detail, clarity and polish, all qualities that resonate on the rich, expansive finish. The 2000 Dom Perignon Rose is 45% Chardonnay and 55% Pinot Noir, of which 25% is still Pinot. Geoffroy says his goal was to make a statement with the 2000 Dom Perignon Rose; he has done that?and so much more. In fact, the 2000 seems to signal a stylistic shift towards a more important, serious style of rose. This superb wine is not to be missed, but readers should note this is no easygoing rose, rather it is a Champagne that demands serious attention. The 2000 will test the limits of what readers expect from a Dom Perignon Rose, but the wine is simply marvelous. I loved it. This bottle was disgorged in 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.
