The Dom Pérignon rosé Vintage 2000 is the result of a unique vintage. The year 2000 was hot, with below average temperatures in July and humid climate. Chardonnay grapes were supple, ample and complex. Pinot Noir appeared structured with long finish. The robe of Dom Pérignon rosé Vintage 2000 is deep with a beautiful amber color. The first nose is floral and leaves room for notes of cherry and lemon with cocoa and smoky touch, forming a beautiful aromatic complexity. In the mouth, the palate is structured and classic with a sense of balance and a lingering aroma. This Champagne is surprising by its fresh and bright fruit with a subtle touch of bitterness.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2000 Dom Perignon Rose is a flashy, ripe Champagne that screams Pinot to a degree I have never encountered in another vintage of this wine. A dark, intense color leads to a Chambolle-like nose followed by endless red berries, flowers and spices, all backed up with plenty of muscle, richness and density. The wine continues to blossom on the palate, with utterly beguiling detail, clarity and polish, all qualities that resonate on the rich, expansive finish. The 2000 Dom Perignon Rose is 45% Chardonnay and 55% Pinot Noir, of which 25% is still Pinot. Geoffroy says his goal was to make a statement with the 2000 Dom Perignon Rose; he has done that?and so much more. In fact, the 2000 seems to signal a stylistic shift towards a more important, serious style of rose. This superb wine is not to be missed, but readers should note this is no easygoing rose, rather it is a Champagne that demands serious attention. The 2000 will test the limits of what readers expect from a Dom Perignon Rose, but the wine is simply marvelous. I loved it. This bottle was disgorged in 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.
