Dom Pérignon Champagne Gift Box 2008 75cl
The story of Dom Pérignon is a story of constant reinvention and each Vintage is a new beginning. Dom Pérignon vintages set their own release dates, and Vintage 2008 required more patience than Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009, which was presented earlier -an unprecedented event in Dom Pérignon's history.
Here, once again, is evidence of the disconcerting symmetry between the late revelation of the fruit and that of the wine, as with Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006. There was a long wait for a reciprocity between the vintage and Dom Pérignon, with each nurturing the other. Dom Pérignon Vintage 2008 is at last in its First Plenitude, the foundation of its future Plenitudes, each one just as eagerly awaited.
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.
