The Dom Perignon Rosé 2006 is simply amazing. Notes of raspberry, spices and mint jump from the glass in a seductive combination. The texture in the mouth is of precise, crystalline, laser-like tannins in an opulent style. A very great success in a vintage that was not always easy in Champagne.
The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is every bit as captivating as it was last year, maybe even more so. At times powerful, but in other moments finessed, the 2006 constantly changes in the glass, revealing a different shade of its personality with every taste. Perhaps most importantly, the 2006 seems to have gained a level of precision and pure sophistication it did not show last year, when it was quite a bit less put together. Back then, the 2006 was a wine of tremendous potential; today that potential is starting to be realized. Quite simply, the 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is a magical Champagne. Don’t miss it.
The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé continues to show very well, unfurling in the glass with aromas of bitter orange, dried white flowers, red berries, toast and woodsmoke. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and muscular, with all the phenolic structure and depth that one would expect from a rosé that contains more than 20% still red wine, concluding with a sapid and chalky finish. As I wrote earlier this year, this is a vinous, gastronomic rosé that numbers among the decided successes of the 2006 vintage.
Dom Pérignon is vintage champagne only. Each release is both uniquely expressive of the vintage and the character of Dom Perignon. Their artistic winemaking hand and pursuit of absolute perfection is what gives them that ‘je ne sais quoi’ that has led to huge adoration the world over.
The history of Dom Perignon and champagne are as old as time. Abbey of Hautvillers is widely regarded to be the birthplace of champagne where in 1668 Dom Pierre Pérignon took up his role as cellar master. Adding a touch of residual sugar and storing the wine in bottles, Dom Perignon actually stumbled upon a sparkling cuvee my complete accident. Adopting rogue practices such as using red grapes to make white wine and blending different parcels to create an even more complex cuvee, Dom Perignon quickly grew the Abbey of Hautvillers to great renown. Arguably Dom Pierre Pérignon set the standard for all wine now produced in the "champenoise" method.
Dom Perignon Vintage Brut
With its instantly recognisable label, Dom Perignon has grown to one of Champagne’s most powerful brands producing a product of incredible pedigree and consistency. The blend is typically made up of an equally split proportion of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with half of their vineyards are classified as Grand Cru. William Kelley of the Wine Advocate notes that Dom Perignons house style is “typically quite marked by toasty, smoky aromas of reduction in its youth, opening up with age on cork to reveal scents redolent of pear, peach and tangerine, with those youthfully reductive signatures transmuting into subtler suggestions of wheat toast and iodine.”
Dom Perignon Rose
The Dom Perignon Rose focuses on the pinot noir grape which provides power for a more expressive cuvee which usually unfurls in the glass with aromas of orange, dried white flowers, red berries, toast and woodsmoke. The rose is typically released after 12 years in the cellar, somewhere in between the Brut and P2 cuvee. In many vintages the Dom Peringon rose is a great gastronomic wine with the versatility to match many great dishes. Dom Perignon themselves describe the rose cuvee as “untamed and carnal, both light and dark, magnetic” and we couldn’t agree more.
Dom Perignon Plénitude 2 / P2
Dom Perignon Plenitude 2 also referred to as just “P2” is the second life of Dom Perignon. The wine has spent 15 years maturing on lees which is typically twice as long as any vintage of the regular Dom Perignon. The extra time on the lees provides ample time for the wine to grow in density and complexity whilst being a late disgorge, the cuvee carries a lot of freshness for its age. Champagne aficionado Richard Juhlin highlights that the Plenitude 2 “will forever be unique and different with a higher density and concentration than any other Dom Pérignon”. With Dom Perignon only keeping a tiny fraction of the cuvee back to make the Plenitude 2, it’s incredibly difficult to locate but will provide champagne fans with incredible pleasure.
