Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

This limited edition is the ultimate expression of the fruitful collaboration between David Lynch and Dom Perignon. This does not come as a surprise, since the world of Dom Perignon and the one of David Lynch have many points in common: mystery, intensity, commitment, time, constant reinvention of the self, and above all, absolute trust in the power of creation.

Dom Perignon Rose 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 color, 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 flavors 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.

Critical Acclaim

"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. "

"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."
94 Points

"Austere at first, this blossoms into the comfortable, lush textures of the vintage, opening like a rose toward the power of a red wine with grip and touches of tannin. Its formidable structure gives a sense of pale limestone glazed with sunny red fruit. The finish is refreshing, substantial enough to decant for roast squab."

Learn About Champagne

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Pink Bubbles Some Champagne and sparkling wine is pink. It's more rare, and more robust, and sometimes more expensive. But it's one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rose sparkler comes from the skins - which means that the wine must include at least one of the red grapes of the traditional method - Pinot Noir or Pinot...
