Country of Origin: Champagne, France
Variety: Blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay
Taste: Only the best grapes from a particular year are selected for a vintage wine. With a tight flow of bubbles and toasty Golden Delicious aromas, it’s another high-quality sparkler from this consistent producer. The fruit is pronounced and clear. The vintage’s characteristic acidity is remarkably well integrated. The tart citrus flavors and crisp acidity are clean and fresh now, but will also age well.
Food Match: The wine enjoys duality: warmth & freshness, meat & iodine pairings, cooked & raw. Spices enhance and accentuate 2008’s effervescence and densify the wine. Dom Pérignon likes playful experiences: culinary art, textures, and matters.
