Dom Pérignon is always a Vintage champagne. This means that it is only produced in years of one good harvest. Therefore, champagne consists of the harvest of a single year, giving so called testimony to each year. Dom Pérignon Vintage expresses true three characteristic dimensions. First of them being Vintage, which fully comprehends the character of the year it was harvested in. Secondly, Plénitudes which express the way of the long maturation on lees. And finally, colour. Champagne is produced as a White or Rosé. Both, Brut and Dom Pérignon Rose Champagne is produced as a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.
Specifically, when we talk about the 2008 vintage in this matter we can refer to it as a very sublime vintage for a Champagne production. Despite the unfortunate beginning of the year, the end result for Champagne producers was more than excellent. Bright, sunny days contributed to grape ripeness while cooler than average growing season allowed grapes to ripen slowly which resulted in preservation of much-needed acidity. Aforementioned reasons are that this vintage is regarded as Superb.
• Complex and Luminous bouquet
• White flowers, citrus, crushed mint and stone fruit
• spicy, woody and roasted note
• slender, minimalist and pure taste
Dom Pérignon 2008 Vintage is best paired with smoked foods or slightly spicy dishes, like a mild curry. The smokiness and spice in Champagne will complement these complex flavours. However you should be careful with foods that are very spicy, as this can overpower the Champagne.
Dom Pérignon Champagne is perfect for celebrations of important occasions or for a more formal event. However, there is no reason why it should not contribute to clients’ unforgettable yacht gourmet experience.
