Dom Perignon only produce vintage champagne. Each vintage is a creation, singular and unique, that expresses both the character of the year, and the character of Dom Perignon.
After at least eight years of elaboration in the cellars, the wine embodies the perfect balance of Dom Perignon, the Plenitude of harmony.
2008 was dominated by grey, overcast skies – an exception in a decade characterized by bold, generous sunshine. Just when the harvest was getting underway, the weather conditions were finally perfect: blue skies and prolonged north-northeasterly winds. The grapes were riper than anyone dared hope, and had truly outstanding balance. The vines were in perfect health.
To the bracing acidity, concision and aromatic purity expected of the 2008 vintage, Dom Pérignon adds depth, density and complexity. The light is warmer and less harsh.
