Rich ripe plum and raspberry fruit flavours, together with soft oak character and a hint of spice on the palate combine to create this juicy, elegant Shiraz Cabernet. Food Matching: For a match made down under serve at room temperature with lamb, steak or vegetable casseroles.
An elegant colour golden straw yellow with green highlights
A sparkling bouquet the vibrant intensity of green apple and citrus fruit. The freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers. The elegance of blond notes (brioche, cereal, fresh nuts)
A generous palate combining sumptuousness and subtlety the delicious sumptuousness of white-fleshed fruits (pear, peach, apple). The alluring caress of fine bubbles, the soft vivacity of citrus fruit and nuances of gooseberry
Dom Pérignon 2008 is superlative, luminous and glorious. Its original generosity – ample and tactile – is enhanced by a clear structure that gives it freshness and precision.
ON THE NOSE
The immediate impression is of the mildness of the pure, airy, bright bouquet. A floral, fruity pastel tone then unfolds and quickly darkens into candied fruit, ripe hay and toasted notes, along with hints of licorice.
ON THE PALATE
The wine’s opulence – contained and succulent, round at heart – reveals itself on the palate. The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy. The whole eventually melts into an exquisite bitterness tinged with the briny taste of the sea.
Sicilian olive oil embraces the incomparable sensual note of Dom Pérignon. When the wine makes contact with this low acidity, brilliance, and unctuous substance, it reveals Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006’s silky curves, seamless voluptuousness and creaminess, brightened by vegetal notes
