Description & Technical Information
-
Dom Pérignon Rosé is only available as a vintage champagne and is only produced in exceptional years. Each vintage is a creation, singular and unique, that expresses both the character of the year, and is a tribute to Pinot Noir. To work with Pinot Noir continually requires excellence and humility and Dom Pérignon Rosé is the perfect balance of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Although it takes 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. With Dom Pérignon Rosé 2005, the famous House have produced an outstanding vintage rosé from a difficult season.

Weather: The 2005 vintage was unpredictable and full of contrasts. The weather was mostly warm with little rain, however a heatwave in August followed by a cool and rainy September moderated initial anticipation. In the end, a drastic selection in the vineyard ensured a limited volume of exceptional quality and indeed, 2005 was an extremely short vintage.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru
Grape Varieties: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay | inc. 27% Red Wine
Ageing: 10 years on the lees
Dosage: 5.5 g/l
Drink: Now to 2027

Tasting Note: Quite tight on the nose. Hints of rose petals and raspberry at first and after a little more time in the glass plenty of red fruit character lifts the nose. Plenty of spice and black cherry hints on the palate with tropical fruit flavours on the mid-palate lingering long at the finish. Great freshness and balanced acidity. This is one of the best vintage rosés available on the market.

Expert Reviews
18.5/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Mid salmon pink. Still quite tense and introvert on the nose. Opulent fruit – so opulent it almost tastes as though there were a higher dosage, and yet with an energising bitter note on the end. Orange peel. Seductive. Really rather glorious – like a Volnay in its perfume and delicacy, but as substantial as fine red burgundy.
Drink 2015-2027”

Antonio Galloni MW
“The 2005 Dom Pérignon Rosé is an attractive, persistent wine with plenty of character. Sweet dried cherry, mint and rose petals are some of the many nuances that develop with air. Savory notes that are on the edge of vegetal and a real feeling of tannin from the 27% still red Pinot in the blend give the 2005 a decidedly savory edge. ”

Antonio Galloni MW
“The 2005 Dom Pérignon Rosé is intriguing, complex and multi-faceted. Brisk and refreshing, with a slightly herbal (but not unpleasant character), the 2005 is superb today. Over time, the wine has acquired a bit more depth and body than it showed at the outset. Even with all of its depth, though, I would not suggest cellaring the 2005 too long given the challenges of the year. Hints of blood orange, mint, sage and dried flowers add the closing shades of nuance.”

“According to the back label this wine 'reveals the paradox of boldness and harmony resulting from over nine years of elaboration.'
Orange, almost yellow, pale salmon colour. Very tiny bead. Meat and two veg on the nose - this really does smell like a roast beef dinner! Very substantial on the nose and then surprisingly soft, cushiony, on the palate. Attractive embrace and that dense, lacy Dom P undertow. Pretty smart, rich persistence. Some hint of Cape gooseberries on the end. Very long indeed. Far from the driest-tasting champagne you will encounter - perhaps thanks to the still Pinot Noir element - even though apparently the dosage is only 5 g/l. Must be the vintage and the ageing. A little chewy on the end. An extremely bold wine.”
18/20
Richard Hemming MW
“Dosage 5 g/l. Released in March 2017. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir (27% as red wine).
Vibrant, youthful and full of attractive stemmy notes as well as fresh red fruit. Loads of flavour on offer - full of personality and longevity. Gets the balance of fruit, autolysis and evolving forest-floor notes spot on. (RH)”

Michael Edwards
“Pink coral colour with russet highlights. Wild strawberry aromas are followed by peachy notes of summer. Tactile in the mouth, with benign, ripe phenolics. Forward and expressive, there is early pleasure to be had here paired with roast monkfish and Beaufort cheese.

Essi Avellan MW
“The 2005 DP Rosé is quite a beast with 27 percent red wine. Strong, spicy and firm character, still in a youthful berry exuberant face but lurking to reveal its wild, winey and Burgundian side. Not shy to show its ripe phenolic tones and concentrated, voluptuous qualities. In the same genre with the masculine, vinous 2003.”
