2008: A Miracle Champagne

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.

To the bracing acidity, concision and aromatic purity expected of the 2008 vintage, Dom Pérignon adds depth, density and complexity. The light is warmer and less harsh.

Tasting Notes

Nose

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.

Palate

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.

About Dom Pérignon

Dom Pérignon is named after the Benedictine monk Pierre Pérignon who lived in France from 1638 to 1715. He was very interested in wine production and was of great importance for its development and refinement. He developed techniques and among other things wrote down instructions on grape selection (he preferred Pinot Noir only), technology, mixtures of cuvées and to seal the bottles with cork and metal basket. However, he was not, as is often claimed, the one who invented the sparkling wine or the first to make champagne. Click here for more on the history of Dom Pérignon.
