2008 is a year dominated by gray and hazy skies: an exception compared to the rest of the decade, characterized by a prevalence of beautiful and generously sunny weather. Just as the harvest begins, the weather conditions are finally perfect: blue skies and persistent north and north-east winds. The grapes are more ripe than expected and have a truly extraordinary balance. The vines are in perfect health.

To the invigorating acidity, essentiality and aromatic purity, typical characteristics of the 2008 vintage, Dom Pérignon adds depth, density and complexity. The brightness is warmer and less penetrating.

TO THE NOSE

The attack of the bouquet is complex and bright: a mix of white flowers, citrus fruits and stone fruits. The overall effect is emphasized by the freshness of the anise and freshly chopped mint. The final aromas offered by the wine begin to reveal spicy, woody and toasted notes.

ON THE PALATE

After a long period of reticence, the wine finally fully reveals its personality, characterized by a complete balance between nose and palate. Its fine, minimalist, pure, tonic and vigorous character is finally expressed also through warmer notes. The fruit is clear and pronounced. The typical acidity of the vintage is very well integrated. Its persistence is mainly aromatic, austere, smoky and particularly promising.
