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: With similar weather characteristics as the now-legendary 2002, the 2006 vintage was overall very hot and dry. Vines grew in fits and starts with a heatwave during July succeeded by a cool and humid August. The ultimate factor was the summery September weather, which assisted the grapes in developing much more maturity than usual. As a result, the harvest was the longest on record: four weeks beginning on 11th September.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru

Ageing: 11 years on the lees
Disgorged: January 2018
Dosage: 6 g/l
Drink: Now to 2030

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
97+/100
Antonio Galloni MW
“The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is every bit as captivating as it was last year, maybe even more so. At times powerful, but in other moments finessed, the 2006 constantly changes in the glass, revealing a different shade of its personality with every taste. Perhaps most importantly, the 2006 seems to have gained a level of precision and pure sophistication it did not show last year, when it was quite a bit less put together. Back then, the 2006 was a wine of tremendous potential; today that potential is starting to be realized. Quite simply, the 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is a magical Champagne. Don’t miss it.”
18.5/20

“Pale to mid salmon. A definite orange hue. Broad and rose-scented. Really quite extensive on the palate. Very nicely balanced. Lots of fruit and much softer than the 2008 and 2002 Blanc.”

Essi Avellan MW
“Stunningly concentrated and packed with succulent fruitiness, the wine already now shows a beautiful complexity of gunpowder, licorice and oriental spices complementing the plush yet firm Pinot fruit. Truly characterful but utterly sophisticated and packed with delicious, build-to-last fruit. ”
