A RADICAL ASSEMBLY
This strong and clear fruitiness, this very strong aromatic persistence, this perfect coherence opens the field of all possibilities. Dom Pérignon breaks free from the Champagne canon and reinterprets tradition by presenting the 2008 vintage of "Chants de Linottes" from Hautvillers and "Vauzelles" from Aÿ with bold blends of Pinot Noir. Their fruitiness and structure give the precision and natural brilliance of the wine a richer and more intense finish. Harmony is the founding quest of Dom Pérignon, where it is based on contrasts and opposites, sometimes bordering on contradictions.
The Dom Pérignon rosé 2008 is part of a sunny decade. At its heart, the vintage stands out: gray and cloudy, spring and summer characterized by a lack of heat, but also a lack of light. When - like 2000, 2006 or the iconic 1996 - the sun and the winds of September turn things around. Then, to everyone's surprise, the long-awaited maturity is essential to blossom into an unprecedented balance.
The bouquet opens immediately with raspberry and wild strawberry. Powdery aromas of iris and violet quickly mingle with the fruit and take over. As we breathe, we finally see the green dawn, closer to privet, angelica and camphor leaves.
The initial sensation is tactile, fleshy and silky. They gradually unfold and then become stronger. The framework of acidity, a sign of the vintage, wraps itself in the structure of the Pinot Noir, revealing the heart of the wine. The finish is distinguished by notes of peony and white pepper.
