After at least eight years of elaboration in the cellars, the wine embodies the perfect balance of Dom Pérignon, the fullness of harmony.
2008: A MIRACLE OF CHAMPAGNE
The year 2008 was dominated by gray and cloudy skies - an exception in a decade characterized by generous and bold sunshine.
By the time the harvest began, the weather conditions were finally perfect: blue skies and lingering winds from the north-northeast.
The grapes were riper than anyone dared to hope and had a truly extraordinary balance.
The vines were in perfect health. To the acidity, conciseness and aromatic purity expected from the 2008 harvest, Dom Pérignon adds depth, density and complexity.
Light is warmer and less harsh.
The opening bouquet is complex and luminous, a mixture of white flowers, citrus fruits and stones. The overall effect is enhanced by the freshness of aniseed and crushed mint.
The final aromas offered by the wine begin to show spicy, woody and toasty notes.
After a long period of reluctance, the wine is finally opening up. There is a complete balance between the nose and the palate.
Its slim, minimalist, pure, toned and athletic character is now also expressed with warmth.
The fruit is pronounced and clear. The characteristic acidity of the harvest is remarkably well integrated. Its persistence is mainly aromatic, grey, smoky and highly promising.
The wine enjoys duality: heat and freshness, combinations of meat and iodine, cooked and raw.
Spices enhance and accentuate the 2008 effervescence and densify the wine.
Dom Pérignon enjoys playful experiences: culinary art, textures and subjects.
Dom Pérignon launches the 2008 vintage, freeing it from an overly literal interpretation of champagne cannons.
