In a decade of sunny and generous character, 2008 will have been characterized by the climatic contrasts that marked the course of the year.

Aromatic purity, acidity, precision, were all the conditions to give birth to a great Champagne.

TASTING NOTES: Giuseppe De Siena
Brilliant and luminous, the bouquet of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2008 Chef de Cave Legacy Edition opens with the delicacy of the fragrances of white flowers, spicy notes of citrus and stone fruit, while the aromas of anise and mint add a touch of freshness. The ventilation brings out the character of the spicy and toasted notes of the 2008 Dom Pérignon harvest. It is on the palate that this exceptional champagne reveals all its personality, showing an exemplary coherence between the notes perceived on the nose and the discovery on the palate. In a profile with a fine, pure silhouette, brilliant with vivacity and warmth, the wine reveals the purity of the fruit. The marked acidity means that the cru develops harmoniously in the mouth, a sign of a perfectly balanced Champagne. In an extension with mineral and smoky notes, the persistence of the finish is prolonged by this delicious harmony. Fresh and warm at the same time, Dom Pérignon Vintage 2008 Chef de Cave Legacy Edition will be in perfect harmony with the union of textures and flavors that underline its bold duality of character.

A champagne with an inestimable heritage that marks a decisive stage in the history of the maison, Dom Pérignon Vintage 2008 Chef de Cave Legacy Edition brilliantly signs the passing of the baton. A symbol of continuity, a creative ambition, a tribute to an already legendary Champagne

Wine Advocate-Parker:
The best launch of this iconic cuvée since the 1996 vintage, the 2008 Dom Pérignon spreads from the glass with an incredibly complex bouquet of Meyer lemon, green apple, dried white flowers and oyster shell, with only subtle hints of smoky and autolytic aromas . they have been such an important signature of recent releases. On the palate the wine is medium to full, deep and complete, its remarkable pulp and amplitude controlled by incisive acids, with an exuberant but elegant youthful froth and a long and well defined finish. Considering the size of this cuvée, it is a remarkable achievement and an appropriate launch with which to conclude Richard Geoffroy's tenure as chef de cave. Given the intensity and balance of 2008, I suspect purists will anticipate the next slaughter with a lower dose and longer time on the yeasts with particular enthusiasm. Tested three times, with consistent results.
