The Dom Perignon Rosé 1998, true jewel among the Dom Perignon wines, offers perfumed and floral notes to the nose, then scents of orange peel, dried fruits being characteristics of a ripe harvest and of and oaky spice. On the palate, the wine is wide with an outstandingly balanced structure, precise and sophisticated. It reminds of a warm complexity, persistent and vibrant, enhanced by a slight bitterness.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 1998 Dom Perignon Rose is a striking, intensely perfumed wine redolent of sweet candied cherries and spices. This medium-bodied wine possesses gorgeous structure, and ideally another year or two of cellaring is warranted in order for the full range of aromas and flavors to emerge. The Dom Perignon Rose is 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, with most of the Pinot coming from the south-facing vineyards of Ay. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
