An impeccably balanced and graceful sparkling rosé with a plushly creamy mousse. It's hard to tell where the firm spine of well-honed acidity and the expressive range of pureed raspberry candied ginger tangerine and lemon thyme flavors begin or end. A rich hint of smoky toasted brioche plays on the finish. Drink now through 2033
The 2008 Dom Pérignon Rosé continues to drink brilliantly exhibiting aromas of orange red berries pear pastry spices and some smoke with time in the glass. Full-bodied charming broad and fleshy with pristine balance it?s a seamless complete and vinous Champagne of compelling purity and maturity.
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) -- Antonio Galloniv
