Experience the finest champagne and a vintage year with Dom Pérignon 2008. Dom Pérignon only creates vintage wines and Dom Pérignon Blanc is the flagship of the house. It is a harmony between style and the singularity of the vintage.

2008: A Champagne Miracle
2008 was dominated by grey, overcast skies - 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. To the bracing acidity, concision and aromatic purity expected of the 2008 vintage, Dom Pérignon added depth, density and complexity.

On the Nose
The opening bouquet is complex and luminous, a mingling of white flowers, citrus and stone fruit. The overall effect is enhanced by the freshness of aniseed and crushed mint. The final aromas reveal spicy, woody and roasted notes.

On the Palate
There is complete balance between the nose and the palate. Its slender, minimalist, pure, toned and athletic character is also expressed with warmth. The fruit is pronounced and clear. The vintage's characteristic acidity is remarkably well integrated. Its persistence is mainly aromatic, grey, smoky and highly promising.

Food Pairing
The wine enjoys duality: warmth & freshness, meat & fish pairings, cooked & raw. Spices enhance and accentuate 2008's effervescence and densify the wine.
