The Story

Dom Pérignon Rosé is a tribute to Pinot Noir. To work with Pinot Noir continually requires excellence and humility. In that regard, Dom Pérignon Rosé is a paradox to the point of contradiction as it is the perfect balance of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Although it took over ten years to reach the light of day, the color of Dom Pérignon Rosé dares to express all the tension between youth and maturity, between exhibition and restraint.
Dom Pérignon Rosé keeps the Pinot Noir promise by making it sing out loud, on a clear, vibrant and fragile note.


At the end of the 17th Century, Dom Pierre Pérignon stated his ambition to create ‘the best wine in the world’.  On 29 September 1694, Dom Pierre Pérignon wrote that his mission was to create “the best wine in the world.” He dedicated himself to improving viticulture techniques, perfecting the art blending grapes from different crus, and introduced the gentle and fractional pressing to obtain white wine from black grapes.Ever since, the House of Dom Pérignon has perpetuated this visionary approach instilled by its founder, one that remains a hallmark of true luxury: the constant reinvention of the exceptional.


Under the creative leadership of cellar master Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon is reinvented with every vintage. The miraculous concept of assemblage – the delicate balance between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – and the commitment to Vintage are instrumental in the act of creation, revealing the wine's extra soul. Precise and tactile to the point of seamlessness, tense through rhythm and vibrancy, vigorous and fresh yet mature, intense and complex – such is the sensual style of Dom Pérignon: so inviting, yet so mysterious...

The core of the blend are the eight historical Grands Crus, Aÿ, Bouzy, Verzenay, Mailly, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil, plus the legendary Hautvillers Premier Cru. Dom Perignon also has the unique privilege of being able to select grapes from all 17 Grands Crus in Champagne. giving birth to Dom Perignon's highly intriguing contrast".

ROSÉ 1996

The year was full of contrasts and the summer changeable, with the wetter periods never quite making up for the earlier hydric deficit. Eventually, in the month before grape-picking (16 September), it was as much the spells of hot weather as the influence of north-easterly winds that led to the original maturity of the vintage.

Vintage 1996

Up to this point 1996 has been considered a fantastic vintage which produced classic wines; the best since 1990. A long, dry summer produced grapes of record ripeness with record acidity. Some, including myself, question how the 1996s are aging. The wines are generally characterized by a distinctive rather lemony acidity and very good attack, but some wines now seem terribly austere, while others already seem dangerously short of fruit. None of the subsequent vintages are quite as distinctive as 1996, which in the more successful cases should almost certainly be drunk after the 1999s.

Written Notes

How about another pair of distinguished bubblies? The ’85 Dom Rose was so much more open than the 1996. It seemed more than ten years between the two. I have always loved the 1985 although this one hinted at a faster evolution than I last recall; the 1996 is very wound, a bit tart and not as racy as other 1996s. We shall see how it develops.

The nose is a delightful confection of strawberries, raspberries, apricot, peach and honey. It opens with heft, this is a beautifully balanced Champagne but with considerable power. You get some orange, redcurrants, some spices, with a vital mousse accentuating all of it. At the mid palate the emphatic stridence is gracefully evident, as is some of its relative Pinot dominance. A “food wine”, this would be brilliant with a Duck a la Orange. Past the mid palate, tannic cherries, spices, roses and citrus all flare forth on a palate coating and generous, yet still eminently poised finale. 95 Points

The aroma of malt rapidly leads into well-ripened fruit, nectarine and wild strawberries, complemented by smoky, peaty accents.

In a paradox that typifies the vintage, concentration and movement vie each other with an affirmation of boldness and authority. The tastes progress with strength – tense, radiant and sharp. The finish is firm, underscored with a slightly vanilla-spicy note.

Tasted on the 9th December 2016. Really impressive stuff, virile, sophisticated, rich, great acidity and sweet tones. Wonderful stuff and awesome to enjoy.

TASTINGNOTE Man har tillverkat endast 35 flaskor Dom Pérignon Gold Rosé i en sexlitersflaska (Methusalem) insvept i ett rosa guldöverdrag från juvelerarhuset Chaumet. Prist? € 30 000. Första flaskan såldes till en restaurant i Hvar i Kroatien där den finns på vinlistan för US$ 200.000. Man köpte den förra versionen och lyckades sälja 4 flaskor av den. Domineras i dag av mineral och steniga toner samt av årgångens syrliga profil. I fonden ligger ett brett smaklager av sofistikerad jordgubbsmättad och vaniljpolerad rikedom redo att blomma ut om tio år eller så.

Medium-deep salmon red colour with a bronze hue. Spicy, nuanced, meaty nose, mineral, straw pwerfume. Rich and round. Youthful on the palate. Clean and pure future is ahead. Less personality than in the crissy. Surprisingly youthful. Even dried fruit.

Good looking magnum size bottle.
