Dom Perignon Rose

Cracka Review

Everyone loves a bit of pink in their life, and here is one from the famous Dom Perignon Champagne house. This is a richer, drier style of Rose that shows pretty scents of bright red berries and cherries, with hints of creaminess and smoky characters. The palate is no shrinking violet still showing some fruity red berry flavours, a decent line of bright citrusy acidity, a fine bubble, and a long, minerally finish, with a kick of spice on the tail. Excellent with some cured meats or smoked salmon.

Winemaker's Notes

On The Nose:
The wine's bouquet is lifting and luminous, with a wide spectrum dominated by an orange-red glow. This complexity becomes deeper and more somber in the finish, with hints of smoke and black cherry.

On The Palate:
The wine has an assertive presence and is remarkably tactile, with creamy fleshiness and caressing intensity. The feeling of fullness stretches out and sustains the sappy vibrant crystalline note.

Dom Perignon Rose

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
The most elusive of all champagnes; however lurid and exaggerated the estimates of the millions of bottles of the standard vintage may be, no-one disputes that the make of this wine is restricted by the amount of suitable pinot noir, but perhaps reflecting the 60% dominance of pinot noir in the blend (the remainder chardonnay). Its pale salmon hue leads on to a bouquet with as much in common with an old red burgundy as champagne, with a myriad of spice and fraises du bois aromas before the silky elegance of the palate takes centre stage. Once again there are spicy, almost savoury, red berry flavours mixed with touches of forest and earth, the final stanza a cleansing finish that sweeps away all but the red fruit and spice components.

Nick Stock (1998 Vintage) says
Dom Rosé is a real treat, a special wine for a special occasion and one to share with people who really matter. The wine is excellent, one of the most polished rosé champagne wines. It is stamped with the Dom Perignon philosophy of intensity and complexity, while ticking the rosé boxes with style and ease. The 1998 vintage seems to have played to the strengths of this wine - classic partridge-eye pale-pink colour and a super-fine bead that builds a gentle, creamy mousse. Musky, fragrant red fruits and a strong sense of poise and power on the nose, very fresh and very concentrated. The palate has a smooth, almost creamy texture and moves with precision and balance from the very outset. Smooth, musky red fruit flavours, bright acidity and a supple, airy mouthfeel, finishing with freshness and completeness. Superb!

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
However large the make of its big brother may be, that of the Rose is very small, partly due to the limited amount of pinot noir table wine of the right weight, character and quality. It is this addition which is the primary difference of the Rose from Dom Perignon proper. You certainly won’t find a Rose in a vintage not declared by Dom for its main wine, nor will you ever find a non-vintage Dom. This ’98 Rose if a wine that you can lose yourself in, as I do regularly with great red Burgundies: spices abound, woven through the warmth of the red fruits, and the mouthfeel is amazingly supple and silky, even with the core of acidity you know must be there. When only the very best will do.
