2008 dom perignon, rose
Why We're Buying
Dom Pérignon Rosé is a vintage Champagne, meaning that Moët & Chandon only makes it in strong years. The commitment to quality ensures immaculate final products that offer a seamless blend of pinot noir and chardonnay. This sparkling wine, which retails around $400 per bottle, is a must-have part of the Dom Pérignon portfolio.
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. (Originally published in May 2021).
