Winemaker's Notes:

Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2000 has matured in the cellars of Epernay for eight years, allowing it to express this full richness and depth. Its rareness and bold character make it a stunning wine.

On the eyes Intense, deep colour, with light hints of amber and copper.

On the nose The first floral notes immediately give way to black cherry and candied fruit peel followed by cocoa, cardamom and smoky aromas.

On the palate The wine is beautifully structured and well-balanced in a perfect classic style, the different facets of its personality blended into a coherent whole. The fruit flavours are smooth, with surprising body and sparkle. The initial firmness becomes more rounded and creamier with a subtle sweet and sour note of pink grapefruit.

About Dom Perignon:

Dom Pérignon, a seventeeth-century cellarmaster of the Abbey of Hautvillers, is revered as the spiritual father of winemaking in the Champagne region. Keen observation, respect for nature, pragmatic creativity, technical innovation, the courage of his convictions, and patience were the instruments serving his vision. He constantly mastered and incorporated all its components and the stages of its production, from the vineyards themselves to the pressing and clarification of the wines and their preservation.

Dom Pérignon was the originator of new techniques for cultivating vines and making wine. These innovations spread rapidly throughout the region.

Today, Dom Pérignon is produced by France's largest Champagne house, Moët et Chandon. Dom Pérignon’s principle contribution in the 20th century has been its commitment to vintage years. In addition to the exclusive use of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from only the finest growths and vineyards, Dom Pérignon strictly limits itself to wines of the very best years, which have undergone long ageing.

The Dom Pérignon style is constructed by the Chef de Cave to create a range of sensations on the palate that reflect all the complexity of the structure, and the aromas and characteristics of the vintage.
