The colour is strikingly pale with a vibrant pink tint. The wine's bouquet offers pomegranate, ripe strawberries and a wisp of pipesmoke. On the palate the wine is remarkably tactile, with a creamy texture inviting flavours of cherry kernel and roast pecan nuts. A rosé vintage has perhaps never gone so far and attained such great heights whilst harnessing a great potential for ageing: it will become even more stellar over time.
Dom Perignon Rose is considered the jewel of Dom Perignon: luminous, complex and bold, it is the most daring and intriguing expression of the Dom Perignon style.
This jewel holds the secret to eternal life: after being aged for 10 years before being released, it still has the same light-heartedness, impetuosity and vivacity, the vitality of the fruit is intact.
Dom Perignon Rose is made from the purest fruit: the rarest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Only a handful of the finest grands crus vineyards have the soil and exposure that enable them to attain their fullest expression, which is why Dom Pérignon Rosé is always produced in very limited numbers.
These red wines provide extra vinosity, which must be balanced out in the final assemblage to conform to the Dom Perignon style, making it a real challenge for the Chef de Cave.
"Dom Perignon Rose is an extrovert wine that gives the Pinot Noir grape its due, almost to the point of contradiction, since the heart of the Dom Pérignon spirit is to achieve a perfect balance between white and black grapes. That is what makes it so tantalizing," says Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave.
Although it took over ten years to reach the light of day, the colour of Dom Pérignon Rosé dares to express all the tension between youth and maturity, between exhibition and restraint.
The 2002 vintage shaped up ideally over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. The vines were in good health and the dehydration of the grape berries helped them reach new heights of ripeness.
