2008 Dom Perignon Rose Reviews



99 Pointz James Suckling


“This shows incredible depth of fruit with strawberry, cherry, and phenolics. Full-bodied and layered with an incredible, three-dimensional element to the wine. This is so transparent and dynamic with dark fruit, yet it remains vivid and bright. Refined and precise, it goes on and on. Really savory, fresh, and incredibly pinot-noir-like. What a wine. 13 years of maturation in the bottle. So drinkable now, but it will age for many years ahead.”



97 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“The newly released 2008 Dom Pérignon Rosé is a dramatic, perfumed wine, bursting with aromas of blood orange, iodine, sweet citrus fruit, peach, and pear mingled with hints of buttered toast, smoke, and spices. Full-bodied, textural, and enveloping, with terrific concentration, racy acids, and a pillowy mousse, it concludes with a long, penetrating finish. It derives its intense hue from red wine produced from Pinot Noir grown in lieux-dits Chants de Linottes in Hautvillers and Vauzelles in Aÿ.”



97 Pointz Vinous


“The 2008 Dom Pérignon Rosé is magnificent. Rich and deep in the glass, the 2008 offers up an exotic mélange of aromas and flavors. Sweet red cherry, mint, orange peel, and rose petal all grace this beguiling beauty. Bright acids and a little less still red Pinot (21%) than in most recent editions yields a Rosé that is delicate and light on its feet, with less of the vinous intensity that marked vintages such as 2006. There is a classic feeling of austerity in the 2008 that is mesmerizing.”

“An impeccably balanced and graceful sparkling rosé, with a plushly creamy mousse. It's hard to tell where the firm spine of well-honed acidity and the expressive range of pureed raspberry, candied ginger, tangerine, and lemon thyme flavors begin or end. A rich hint of smoky toasted brioche plays on the finish.”

“Offering up aromas of white flowers, red berries, toast, and fresh pastry, Dom Pérignon rosé 2008 is medium to full-bodied, tense, and vibrant, with a vinous texture and sapid nuances. Delicately phenolic, this is a pure and racy gastronomic Champagne that’s beginning to drink with style, and concludes with a long and penetrating finish.”





2006 Dom Perignon Rose Review



97 Pointz Vinous


“The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is every bit as captivating as it was last year, maybe even more so. At times powerful, but in other moments finessed, the 2006 constantly changes in the glass, revealing a different shade of its personality with every taste. Perhaps most importantly, the 2006 seems to have gained a level of precision and pure sophistication it did not show last year, when it was quite a bit less put together. Back then, the 2006 was a wine of tremendous potential; today that potential is starting to be realized. Quite simply, the 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is a magical Champagne. Don’t miss it.”



96 Pointz Wine Spectator


“This graceful 2006 shows lovely freshness, featuring a pronounced note of pink grapefruit granita layered with finely detailed accents of toasted nut, lemon thyme, smoky mineral and crystallized honey. Plushly creamy in texture, with a steely streak of acidity well-knit throughout and firming the lasting, spiced finish.” 



95 Pointz James Suckling


“Loads of complexity on offer here, from brioche to dried peaches to strawberries and cream and on to rhubarb fool, pomegranate pastries and bread crumbs. The mousse is wonderfully integrated to the edgy peaches and notes that feather the finest line between oxidation and reduction. Very layered and linear, this is an incredibly long and mind-bending Champagne.”



95 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé continues to show very well, unfurling in the glass with aromas of bitter orange, dried white flowers, red berries, toast,

and woodsmoke. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and muscular, with all the phenolic structure and depth that one would expect from a rosé that contains more than 20% still red wine, concluding with a sapid and chalky finish. As I wrote earlier this year, this is a vinous, gastronomic rosé that numbers among the decided successes of the 2006 vintage.”



95 Pointz Wine & Spirits


“This builds structure and complexity into the gentle ripeness of 2006: The wine’s floral strawberry notes develop with bright energy, the flavors turning toward raspberries, fresh almonds and chalk. It’s pretty great on any vintage terms.”

“The Dom Perignon Rosé 2006 is simply amazing. Notes of raspberry, spices, and mint jump from the glass in a seductive combination. The texture in the mouth is of precise, crystalline, laser-like tannins in an opulent style. A very great success in a vintage that was not always easy in Champagne.”



 18.5/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine


“Pale to mid salmon. A definite orange hue. Broad and rose-scented. Really quite extensive on the palate. Very nicely balanced. Lots of fruit and much softer than the 2008 and 2002 Blanc.”




2005 Dom Perignon Rose Reviews



99 Pointz James Suckling


“A mind-blowing wine. This is super subtle and intense with aromas of peaches, light strawberry and cream. Also shows rose petal and cooked peaches. Medium to full body, with ultra-fine tannins that feel like fine silk. The finish goes on for minutes. It floats across the palate. The winemaker says the closet vintage to this is the 1990, but I think this is better.”



95 Pointz Wine Enthusiast


“This Champagne is beautifully mature, its ripe fruit and soft texture magnified by toast and yeast. Rich and full bodied, its fine acidity keeps it in great condition. With a crisp aftertaste that gives it a delicious lift, it's ready to drink now.”



95 Pointz Wine Spectator

Collectibles


“This rosé Champagne is rich and vinous, offering smoky minerality up front, expanding to show dried raspberry, mandarin orange zest, brioche and espresso crème flavors that ride the fine, lacy mousse. Spice and mineral details persist on the racy finish.”



94 Pointz Vinous


“The 2005 Dom Pérignon Rosé is an attractive, persistent wine with plenty of character. Sweet-dried cherry, mint, and rose petals are some of the many nuances that develop with air. Savory notes that are on the edge of vegetal and a real feeling of tannin from the 27% still red Pinot in the blend give the 2005 a decidedly savory edge.” 



94 Pointz Wine & Spirits


“Brisk and firm, this is an appetite-inducing rosé. The spice—like cracked black and green peppercorns—seems to enhance the beautiful red-fruit glow, a scent of blood oranges and peppery strawberries that lasts. The flavors are deep enough to benefit from decanting, though you could just pour it directly to serve with duck à l’orange.”



93 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“Offering up aromas of orange rind, dried white flowers, and fresh pastry mingled with nuances of smoke and iodine, the 2005 Dom Pérignon Rosé is medium to full-bodied, vinous, and fleshy, with a rich core of fruit complemented by sapid nuances that lend the wine interesting gastronomic potential. Broad, textural, and delicately phenolic, it's a successful effort in a challenging Champagne vintage.”

93 Pointz Decanter


“Red grapes are sourced from 10ha, all specific sites, located from Hautvillers down to Cumières and then in Ay and Verzenay from the great grand cru sites. Vincent says that between 10 and 30% of these red wines are ‘invited’ to join the blend, the challenge being to integrate their very particular aromatics and phenolics into the ensemble. Different decisions have to be made for the rosé, and more time is required before release. In the case of 2005, Chaperon - whose first project upon joining that year was to make the red wine for the rosé - wonders if he included too much Pinot Noir. I respectfully beg to differ: I find everything about the wine attractive, from its nacreous almost luminous hue through to its wonderfully complete mid-palate precision. A Volnay with bubbles.”



18.5/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine


“Still quite tense and introvert on the nose. Opulent fruit – so opulent it almost tastes as though there were a higher dosage, and yet with an energising bitter note on the end. Orange peel. Seductive. Really rather glorious – like a Volnay in its perfume and delicacy, but as substantial as fine red burgundy.”



2004 Dom Perignon Rose Reviews



96 Pointz Vinous


“The 2004 Dom Pérignon Rosé has put on remarkable weight over the last year or so. A rich, voluptuous wine, the 2004 Rosé hits the palate with stunning depth and resonance. The flavors are bold, rich and beautifully resonant from start to finish. Raspberry, cranberry, smoke, spice and crushed rocks build to the stunning, powerful finish. Vinous and ample, the 2004 Rosé will drink well for decades. The 2004 just keeps getting better with time in bottle.”



96 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“The fascinatingly copper-colored 2004 Dom Pérignon Rosé has a beautifully delicate bouquet of red fruits,and indicates a great purity and freshness. Kept on the lees for at least nine years to smooth the tannins the 2004 reveals a weightless power on the palate. It has a deep and concentrated, highly elegant Pinot character (though Chardonnay and Pinot are more or less 50/50), and is full of finesse and freshness. The 2004 is intense and vinous, yet pure, precise, and extremely fine. Adorable.”



95 Pointz Wine Enthusiast


“This is a very fine wine with considerable bottle age. From its orange-pink color to its mature toast and almond flavors, this complex wine is much more than the fruit that has merged with the secondary flavors. Light tannins and a crisp texture are balanced by the softness that comes from the relatively high dosage. The wine, beautifully mature, is ready to drink.”



95 Pointz Wine Spectator


“The smoke-tinged, minerally nose leads to well-spiced and expansive flavors of white raspberry, blood orange zest, toasted brioche and pickled ginger in this well-toned rosé Champagne. A satiny mousse and mouthwatering acidity frame the elegant finish.”

“A russet-red hue, thanks to a higher proportion of still Pinot Noir used. The scents and flavours are something special. Exciting freshness, tension, and energy – the punch of the Chardonnay is evident, yet very harmonious, building to a terrific finale of mouthfilling Pinot Noir fruits.” 



19/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine


“Mid to pale orange rose (as in the flower) colour. Apparently the proportion of red wine was the highest ever, 27% of the blend. Notably opulent rose-petal nose. Very broadly fruity and deep flavoured with massive palate impact that surely has the power to mend sore throats. Beautiful smooth satin texture. ‘We squeezed everything out of this vintage', said Richard Geoffroy, ‘we really worked hard on it'. This is a great wine that happens to be pink. It’s not remotely sweet but is beautifully round and complete. I have suggested it was probably delicious two years ago but in fact it had only just been released.



2003 Dom Perignon Rose Reviews



96 Pointz Wine Spectator


“Finely detailed in texture, with an expressive flavor profile of strawberry pâte de fruit, biscotti, ground anise and ginger, matched to vivid acidity and a rich, minerally character. Broad and creamy on the palate, featuring a long, echoing finish.”



94 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“What's more, the price-quality rapport here is excellent by any Champagne standards, and puts that of many a prestige cuvee to shame. Moet’s 2003 Brut Rose Dom Perignon exhibits both richness and robustness reflecting its torrid vintage, yet manages to stint neither on primary juiciness nor transparency to nuance; nor does it come off as at all heavy. Lightly cooked ripe strawberry and fig infused with rose hip, licorice, Ceylon tea, heliotrope and leather inform a delightfully forward nose and lush, effusively fruity palate. A tart and seedy edge to the strawberry serves for invigoration; and lobster shell reduction serves for mouthwatering salinity and somehow downright sweet animal savor. There is a hint of tannin, but it is fine-grained and suggestive of structural support. A long, seductively rich finish manages to harbor not just the immediately aforementioned virtues, but also a sense of transparency to floral and tea-like nuances and to virtually shimmering stoniness.”



94 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine  Cellars


“Light orange. Heady red berry and citrus fruit aromas are complicated by smoky minerals, potpourri and tarragon. Broad and weighty on the palate, offering intense raspberry and blood orange flavors and a bright mineral overlay. No way that I'd have guessed that this came from a hot vintage like '03. Closes smoky, stony and extremely long, with superb intensity and a late jolt of candied rose.”



94 Pointz Vinous


“After all these years, the 2003 Dom Pérignon Rosé has finally started to be expressive. In this tasting, the 2003 is distinguished by its vertical build and a real sense of gravitas. The natural power of the year - once quite hidden - now comes through loud and clear.”

“The 2003 is appropriately rich, with a nose of black forest gâteau, morello cherry, and even a whiff of eau-de-vie. It's all power, life-assuring and decadent. The finish is somewhat four-square, adamantine, proud, and forthright.”


18/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

“Pale greyish salmon pink. Quite a bit of Pinot nectar on the nose. Very straightforward. Tight and a tiny bit phenolic on the end – a bit like the 2005.”



2002 Dom Perignon Rose Reviews



98 Pointz Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


“Unfortunately there is only one new release from Dom Perignon on the market, but what a wine it is! The 2002 Brut Rosé explodes from the glass with endless layers of huge, voluptuous fruit, A big, full-bodied wine, the 2002 is probably the most overly vinous, intense Rose ever made by long-time Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy. Layers of cool, insistent minerality balance the fruit beautifully on the crystalline, vivid finish. The 2002 will be nearly impossible to resist young, but take my word for it; the wine is extremely closed right now.”



98 Pointz Vinous


“The 2002 Dom Pérignon Rosé is a tremendous example of this vintage at its very best. A Champagne of vertical thrust and intensity, the 2002 is rich, opulent, and hedonistic from the very first taste. Readers should expect a Rosé built on a huge core of fruit. Rose petal, passion fruit, and exotic flowers add shades of dimension to the wine’s decidedly flamboyant personality. What a wine!”




95 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar


“Bright orange-pink. A heady, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes candied red berries, blood orange, rose oil and buttered toast, with vibrant mineral and Asian spice nuances adding complexity; smells like a high-class red Burgundy from one of the high-rent Chambolle neighborhoods. Sappy, penetrating raspberry and bitter cherry flavors gain sweetness with air, with notes of orange marmalade and succulent herbs adding complexity. Clings with superb intensity on the smoky, minerally, floral finish.”

“Extraordinarily powerful yet astonishingly beautifully constructed, the 2002 rosé is subtly different to its siblings, yet still seamless of architecture and impressive of length. Beyond the herbs and mellow autumnal berries there's salinity at the back of the mouth. It's perhaps a little unexpected from a rosé, but undeniably adds further layers to an already multi-faceted persona. Youthful yet wise beyond its years, this makes a wonderful pairing with the final wine, the 1990 P2 rosé. Drink with the most lavish crustacean dishes.”

“Magnum. Pungent and composed with massive energy. Lovely edge of freshness. Long and nuanced. So clean and pure. Long and lovely!” 




2000 Dom Perignon Rose Reviews



97 Pointz Wine & Spirits


“This has the casual beauty of pinot noir grown in the right place: It leaves a good taste in your mouth, the essence of ripe raspberries lasting for minutes. As a wine, it seems to contradict a lot of assumptions about the warm 2000 vintage, feeling fresh, vibrant, focused on finesse. Carson Demmond of The Modern described it as 'a sultry, feminine style without being soft—the wine has backbone.' Its structure refers back to the earth while its flavors point skyward. Lovely to drink now, this will age with grace.”



96 Pointz James Suckling


I've always been a huge fan of DP rosé. It's rich and intense but never heavy and cloying like so many rose Champagnes. I was surprised how fresh and balanced the 2000 DP rosé still is considering the warm and sunny weather during the growing season. Hot and sunny years are seldom great years for Champagne. Yet this bottle is superb with creamy-textured sliced peaches, cranberries, petals,  and apples on the nose and palate. It was full-bodied with a enrapturing texture and an intense, flavorful finish.



96 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“The 2000 Dom Perignon Rosé 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.”



96 Pointz Vinous


“The 2000 Dom Pérignon Rosé is a turning point for the house, as it represents a move towards a more ambitious, bold style that is a clear departure from the past. Now showing the very first signs of early development, the 2000 is also an ideal choice for drinking today. Crushed flowers, rose petals, sweet red berries, and spices are laced into the racy, welcoming finish. Disgorged 2008.”



94 Pointz Wine Enthusiast


“A beautifully balanced wine, with bitter cherries in a core of dry toast. It is already mature, its freshness transformed into a rich texture. Like many rosé Champagnes, this is made for food.’

“As we’ve come to expect from DP over the last 10 years or so, this is yet another curve ball. Not that this was immediately obvious when first released. One of the lighter coloured DP rosés, the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir appeared to be in perfect harmony just 18 months ago, but gradually the Chardonnay has revealed its ripeness while the Pinot Noir has developed a distinctly wild character. Not a greenness as such, but definitely veering more towards Sauvignon Blanc than Pinot, making the 2000 unique and distinctive, supported and softened by a delicate mousse, and bursting with a myriad of orchard and berry fruits. Typical of its creator, Richard Geoffroy, this pink Champagne offers endless possibilities to play with at the table.”



18/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine


“Pale strawberry pink with a hint of crimson still. Very broad and enveloping on the nose - as though one had plunged oneself into a cloud of feathers somehow. Absolutely lovely texture: creamy and, again, enveloping. Much more flattering than the firmer 1998 tasted alongside. Masses of fruit, quite complex fruit already on the mid palate. Delicate and relatively soft - delicate enough to enjoy on its own as an aperitif. Pure pleasure, deeply flirtatious - even though it may not be the longest-lasting Dom P rosé.”
