Dom Perignon 2008 Vintage Champagne 75cl Gift Box
In Dom Pérignon's history, the Dom Pérignon 2008 Vintage Champagne is the first vintage released out of sequence for the main reason that it was felt the 2008 needed more time to embody the perfect balance of Dom Pérignon, the Plénitude of harmony. Dom Pérignon Vintage 2008 is at last in its First Plenitude, the foundation of its future Plenitudes, each one just as eagerly awaited.
"Dom Pérignon liberates the 2008 vintage, freeing it from an over-literal interpretation of the canons of champagne." said Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon's Chef de Cave.Read more...

“Brisk, tiny mousse. Notably rich nose - very Dom P! There's a hint of something marine on the nose (Michael Broadbent's oyster shells?) and then extremely tight and lacy - it somehow reminded me of a sponge because of springy texture. Masses of energy here, as well as the usual flirtatiousness. It will continue to open out, I'm sure. I tasted it very cool and then went back to it at almost room temperature a couple of hours later and it stood up extremely well. The official Geoffroy description of this vintage is 'athletic' and 'vertical'. 'All 2008s are bright in terms of fruit; we want ours to shine white light. We have deliberately warmed it up a bit, working on the muscle to better integrate the acidity.'” June 2018

“The 2008 Dom Pérignon is fabulous, but quite remarkably, it was even more open when I tasted it a year ago. Bright, focused and crystalline in its precision, the 2008 is going to need a number of years before it is at its best. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper give the 2008 its chiseled, bright profile. Several recent bottles have all been magnificent. What I admire most about the 2008 is the way it shows all the focus, translucence and energy that is such a signature of the year, and yet it is also remarkably deep and vertical. In other words, the 2008 is a champagne that plays in three dimensions.” July 2018
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.
