Born from the sunny 2006 vintage, which will be remembered for its hot and dry weather, the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 is a champagne that offers a "magnetic drive," in the words of Cellar Master Vincent Chaperon, successor to Richard Geoffroy since December 2018.
A celebration of the noble Pinot Noir, the Dom Pérignon Rosé 2006 blends this red variety with the another emblematic grape of Champagne, Chardonnay, in a proportion that remains a closely guarded secret.
The product of over 10 years of work, the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 is a Champagne offering the perfect blend of youth and maturity.
At the tasting, the Rosé Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006 perfumes the nose with its deep, intense aromas. The bouquet opens up in several waves, revealing notes of spice and cocoa at the very beginning. Then come delicious roasted fruits, like figs and apricots, which eventually give way to notes of candied orange. Smoky nuances further enhance the complex aromatic palette. However, it is on the palate that the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 truly expresses its full personality and magnitude. Silky and smooth, the palate grows more and more intense, presenting a juicy frame with a tight grain. Gradually, the palate reveals slightly vegetal, and then iodised notes. The rich personality of the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 Champagne will allow it to pair beautifully with Italian dishes, as well as Spanish or French cuisine.
