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".

Wine Information

I wish you and your loved ones a happy new year and all the best for 2013! What better way to do this than to announce the launch of the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2002?

Dom Pérignon Rosé 2002

Following the strong success of the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2002, the expectations were very high for the Rosé. My feeling is that they were met; my ambition is that they were surpassed; my wish is that you will concur. The story of 2002 is written into the wine: the spring was warm and dry leading to almost perfect flowering; the summer saw long sunny stretches interspersed with overcast and rainy spells, with one final sunny interlude before the harvest. It would be hard to think of a more favourable growing season.

This is reflected in the wine as Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2002 lives up to its promise of accomplished harmony, offering a pure expression of the spirit of Dom Pérignon. This new vintage of Dom Pérignon Rosé will be declared in Istanbul, Turkey on January 23, 2013. I will narrate the tale of this highly awaited night in a future entry.

Vintage 2002

A cold winter and a mild late spring cued for a perfect June allowing early and fast flowering. Outstanding weather conditions prevailed and the season went on without dramatic turns. Rains in August raised concerns regarding gray rot, but finally sunshine and dry conditions throughout September resulted in an abundant crop of largely healthy fruit (11,930 kg/ha). Dehydration due to wind further aided in achieving perfect ripeness and additional concentration. This, and the cool nights, helped in retaining fresh acidity and, despite the ripeness (10.3% potential alcohol), the wines did not suffer from heaviness or a lack of life. A near-perfect vintage, which produced balanced Champagnes consistently around the region. The best show an impeccable combination of freshness, power, structure and finesse. However, some have matured aromatically quicker than expected and are already past their peak. 2002 produced an abundance of spectacular champagnes, such as Dom Pérignon (the entire range), Krug Vintage and Clos du Mesnil, Piper-Heidsieck Rare, Louis Roederer Cristal and Cristal Rosé, Ruinart Dom Ruinart and Dom Ruinart Rosé, Salon Le Mesnil and Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, to name a few.

Written Notes

The vintaged Rosés of Dom Pérignon have always been unique and prestigious cuvées. The Dom Pérignon style is easily identifiable thanks to the natural freshness of the wine, its complexity and precision in its structure. The 2002 rosé vintage presents a salmon pink and bright robe. It has a fine and accurate effervescence. On the nose, the bouquet of this champagne is bright and complex: smoky notes, as well as red and black berry notes (cherries and rapsberries for instance). On the palate, it is silky and sparkly, the texture is creamy and aromatic. This wine gives a true sensation of pleasure and streches out after each sip...

Light, salmon red. Concentrated and reserved nose shows fresh, ripe cherry and cranberry notes. Dry, crisp and fresh palate with richly intense. Great mousse and refined mouthfeel. Concentrated finish with mineral touch of oystershelves. Champagne with great finesse, but needs time at least five years to evolve and deliver its full potential!

On the nose you have red berries, some orange, brioche and spices swirling together. It opens with a delightful mousse, and throughout you experience both great tension and precision. Berries and citrus and a delightful creaminess combine at the mid palate. Nuts and some spices next, very bright acidity, this wine has ages of development ahead of it. Today it is a tad tightly wound still. Some plums and vivid florals nestled in a luscious texture abound on a persistent, vivid, apple and lemon laced finale. 93 Points+

Richard Geoffroy har här lyckats med konststycket att göra ett vin med mäktig Pinotdoft och samtidigt har vinet en smörig elegant textur av Chardonnay. Vad ska man säga? Vissa årgångar av denna dyrgrip är helt enkelt fantastiska. Färgen har alltid samma djupt röda utseende. Moussen skummar upp på ett sensationellt sätt. Kaffearomer, mocca och bitter premiumchoklad. Allt detta är ett sällsynt tydligt uttryck för förstklassig Pinot Noir. Hela vinet andas storhet! Jag är sjukt imponerad!

Dom Perignon Rosé 2002 Closed but intense and vibrant nose with ripe but fresh red berries, spices and dominant minerality. Excellent palate with smooth, intense, red berry fruit, fresh raspberries, strawberries and elderberries. Has a touch of the hallmark brioche but today it’s mostly grippy fruit with superb minerality and length. Will develop into something great but patience is required. 2022-2035 95p
