Dom Pérignon 2008 Legacy Edition Gift Box
Dom Pérignon 2008 Legacy Edition celebrates the transmission of the Chef De Cave from Richard Geoffroy to Vincent Chaperon from January 1st, 2019. This passing of the torch comes to life through the 2008 Vintage through a shared vision, drawing on the best of the two winemakers’ approaches blending Richard’s sophisticated and comprehensive knowledge with Vincent’s audacious intuition. Dom Pérignon vintages set their own release dates, and the 2008 Vintage required more patience than 2009 which was presented earlier – an unprecedented event in Dom Pérignon’s history. In fact, this 2008 Vintage is considered somewhat of a Champagne Miracle with 2008 having been dominated by grey, overcast skies until harvest in September.
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.After a long period of reluctance, this wine is finally opening up. There is complete balance between the nose and palate. Its slender, minimalist, pure, toned, athletic character now also expresses itself with warmth. The fruit is pronounced and clear. The vintage's characteristic acidity is incredibly well-integrated in this wine. Its persistence is mainly aromatic, grey, smoky and highly promising.
