Dom Pérignon produces vintage champagne only. Each vintage is a creation, singular and unique. After at least eight years of ageing in the cellars, the wine embodies the perfect balance of Dom Pérignon.

2008 was dominated by grey, overcast skies - an exception in a decade characterized by bold, generous sunshine. Just when the harvest was getting underway, the weather conditions were finally perfect: blue skies and prolonged north-northeasterly winds. The grapes were riper than anyone dared hope, and had truly outstanding balance. The vines were in perfect health.

Dom Perignon Vintage 2008 enjoys duality: warmth & freshness. Dom Perignon Champagnes make excellent apéritifs but also work well with food. Top tip: spices really enhance the effervescence of the 2008 vintage.

4/5

- 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.
- Palate: The wine's opulence - contained and succulent, round at heart - reveals itself in the mouth. 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
- The weather in 2006 was mixed, but warm and dry overall. While July was scorching hot, August was unusually cool and wet. The almost summery weather in September made the vintage possible by drying out the few patches of botrytis and maturing the grapes far more than usual. The harvest began on September 11 and lasted nearly four weeks.

My partner loves this Champagne.
Fantastic colour. Very yeasty and biscuity on the nose. It had a correct astringency.
I took this Champagne during a brunch.
