The nose incites a burst of richness and complexity. Ripe fruit at first, then fig and strawberry as the wine breathes and grows, revealing guava, violet and vanilla. The palate is concentrated and remarkably well-defined. The fullness is structured, rich taste. The silky, spicy material very gradually disappears into a mineral, iodine, salty finish.
Dom Perignon Rose is considered the jewel of Dom Perignon: luminous, complex and bold, it is the most daring and intriguing expression of the Dom Perignon style.
This jewel holds the secret to eternal life: after being aged for 10 years before being released, it still has the same light-heartedness, impetuosity and vivacity, the vitality of the fruit is intact.
The weather in 2006 was generally warm and dry, although there were some contrasts. A heat wave hit during July, but August was unseasonably cool and damp. September brought another stretch of warm summer weather that saved the vintage, drying out the few places where botrytis was developing and leading to aboveaverage fruit ripeness. Harvesting began on September 11 and continued for nearly three weeks.
