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
Intense ruby-red color. Aroma: Cherry and blueberry are dominant notes at this time with oak spice, candle smoke and cedar supporting the fruit tones. Taste: Full body and intense. The tannins are moderate and give a balanced grip to the mouth texture. It goes very well with red meat, game and aged cheeses.
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.
