Description

To the bracing acidity, concision and aromatic purity expected of the 2008 vintage, Dom Perignon adds depth, density and complexity. The light is warmer and less harsh. The opening bouquet is complex and luminous, a mingling of white flowers, citrus and stone fruit. The overall effect is enhanced by the freshness of aniseed and crushed mint. The final aromas offered by the wine are starting to show spicy, woody and roasted notes. After a long period of reluctance, the wine is finally opening up. There is complete balance between the nose and the palate. Its slender, minimalist, pure, toned, athletic character is now also expressed with warmth. The fruit is pronounced and clear. The vintage's characteristic acidity is remarkably well integrated. Its persistence is mainly aromatic, grey, smoky and highly promising. Antonio Galloni (Vinous) awarded the wine 98+ points. In his tasting note, he described it as “fabulous and added that “the 2008 is going to need a number of years before it is at its best. Jancis Robinson was also full of praise. She said that there was “masses of energy here, as well as the usual flirtatiousness" and scored the wine 18.5 points.

  • Delivery Information

2008 was dominated by grey, overcast skies � an exception in a decade characterized by bold, generous sunshine. Just when the harvest was getting underway, the weather conditions were finally perfect: blue skies and prolonged north-northeasterly winds. The grapes were riper than anyone dared hope, and had truly outstanding balance. The vines were in perfect health.
