Mesmerisingly complex notes of dark spices and cocoa combine with jammy fig, apricot and candied orange – with a smoky backbone. Immediately striking on the palate, this intense and unctuous champagne is set apart by its complexity and its appealing saline quality on the finish. By Vincent Chaperon, Cellar Master, Dom Pérignon

 

2006 was climatically irregular and, taken as a whole, hot and dry.
The cellar-based ripening of the 2006 vintage was very slow. For a long time, the wine was largely dominated solely by the fruit's ripeness. It was not until 2015 that the comprehensiveness and harmony of its first plénitude was finally revealed.

Dom Pérignon 2006 is superlative, luminous and glorious. Its original generosity - ample and tactile - is enhanced by a clear structure that gives it freshness and precision.

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

Having started life as Moët & Chandon’s prestige cuvée, today Dom Pérignon enjoys an independent position as an icon of champagne. The first vintage of Dom Pérignon Rosé, 1959, was launched in 1971. Characterised by aromas and structure Pinot Noir, it is truly Burgundian in character. This trait is more pronounced in the latest vintages, as cellar master Richard Geoffroy dares to be increasingly adventurous with it. 26th Dom Pérignon Rosé to be released and record-breaking 5th in a row, the 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is an act of creation in a hot and dry year. 

“Technically my most challenging Vintage was 2006. I keep referring to risk at Dom Pérignon, to step outside one's comfort zone: to me it's the essence - an element of magic comes out of it.”Richard Geoffroy 

Warm and dry weather characterised the 2006 vintage, though the month of August proved to be testing, with unseasonably cool and damp weather threatening to allow botrytis to develop. Grapes benefited from warm, dry weather in September, and the harvest began on 11th of the month, just a few days later than the previous vintage.

Vintage 2006

A cold winter and springtime frosts laid the foundations for this vintage of abundant yields (12,997 kg/ha). Uneventful flowering was followed by exceptionally hot and sunny weather, which lasted until August. A dank August left producers fearful but fortunately warm, bright conditions in September redressed the balance. Harvest commenced on September 9th, producing grapes high in sugar level but notably low on acidity. The general health of the grapes was sufficient, producing wines which excel over the preceding 2005 vintage, another warm and ample year. The year's greatest wines are supple and expressive and despite the richness they escape being overly heavy. Overt and welcoming upon launch, the best come with excellent capacity for ageing. Winey, and richly fruity characters, most Champagnes regrettably miss some tension and finesse. Wines of the vintage include Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, Krug Vintage and Dom Pérignon Rosé.

Written Notes

The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé continues to show very well, unfurling in the glass with aromas of bitter orange, dried white flowers, red berries, toast and woodsmoke. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and muscular, with all the phenolic structure and depth that one would expect from a rosé that contains more than 20% still red wine, concluding with a sapid and chalky finish. As I wrote earlier this year, this is a vinous, gastronomic rosé that numbers among the decided successes of the 2006 vintage.

“Already the colour strikes as light for the vintage. The nose kicks off with complex, fragrant top notes of smokiness, gunflint and mix of dark berries, notably black cherries. Stunning toastiness overlays the pristine ripe fruitiness. Blood orange and flowery notes support in the background. The palate plays even more with the fleshiness and Burgundian echos of Pinot Noir with attractive spiciness and licorice notes and firmness of structure. Rich without being heavy. Even if the acidity is slightly on the lower side, enhancing the feel of gentleness and harmony, the salinity kicks in towards the end palate driving it joyously until the delicately phenolic, appropriately dry finish (6g/l dosage). It has a completeness to it and plenty of elegance for the vintage. A genuine class act, which no doubt, is built to last. ”95-98p

The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is tightly-wound and austere, with notable aromatic presence and tons of raw intensity that just needs time to fully come together. Interestingly, the Rosé is very different in style and feel than the Blanc. Time in the glass coaxes an exotic melange of black cherry, cranberry, mint and crushed rocks, but ultimately, the 2006 is no mood to show all of its cards.

THis is very intense and complex on the nose. It is dominated by crunchy red berry notes, as well as fig, guava, vanilla and violet hints. On the palate, this great champagne presents a wide breadth with a silky and spicy mouth-feel. The finish, precise and mineral, is rich and vibrant. The best young Dom Rosé I have tasted.

Inside Information

The intensity and richness of a silky rosé Champagne

Born from the sunny 2006 vintage, which will be remembered for its hot and dry weather, the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 is a champagne that offers a "magnetic drive," in the words of Cellar Master Vincent Chaperon, successor to Richard Geoffroy since December 2018.

A celebration of the noble Pinot Noir, the Dom Pérignon Rosé 2006 blends this red variety with the another emblematic grape of Champagne, Chardonnay, in a proportion that remains a closely guarded secret.

The product of over 10 years of work, the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 is a Champagne offering the perfect blend of youth and maturity.

At the tasting, the Rosé Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006 perfumes the nose with its deep, intense aromas. The bouquet opens up in several waves, revealing notes of spice and cocoa at the very beginning. Then come delicious roasted fruits, like figs and apricots, which eventually give way to notes of candied orange. Smoky nuances further enhance the complex aromatic palette. However, it is on the palate that the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 truly expresses its full personality and magnitude. Silky and smooth, the palate grows more and more intense, presenting a juicy frame with a tight grain. Gradually, the palate reveals slightly vegetal, and then iodised notes. The rich personality of the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 Champagne will allow it to pair beautifully with Italian dishes, as well as Spanish or French cuisine.
