Winemaker Notes

The Dom Perignon Vintage 2008 celebrates the legacy from Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave, to his successor, Vincent Chaperon. Each box tells the story of the Dom Perignon legacy from the perspective of our two world class winemakers: Richard Geoffroy on his tenure over the last two decades at the House of Dom Perignon, and Vincent Chaperon and the future vision he is bringing to Dom Perignon.

The 2008 vintage is historic for Dom Perignon. It is a tale of a vision shared by Richard Geoffroy and Vincent Chaperon, a complete dialogue between two men and nature.

On the Nose: The opening bouquet is complex and luminous, a mingling of white flowers, citrus and stone fruit. The overall effect is enhanced by the freshness of aniseed and crushed mint. The final aromas are starting to show spicy, woody and roasted notes.

On the Palate: After a long period of reluctance, this wine is finally opening up. There is complete balance between the nose and the palate. Its slender, minimalist, pure, toned, athletic character now also expresses itself with warmth. The fruit is pronounced and clear. The vintage's characteristic acidity is incredibly well-integrated in this wine. Its persistence is mainly aromatic, grey, smoky and highly promising.

98 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2008 Dom Perignon is the first time the estate has released a wine out of order, the 2009 was released before the 2008, but the estate loved the wine so much they felt it warranted additional aging. This is a rich, powerful wine that still shows incredible purity and elegance, with a stacked, concentrated feel on the palate. It’s rare to find such a mix of ripe, pure, concentrated fruit paired with this level of purity, focus, and precision. This is a legendary Dom that surpasses all the great vintages of Dom I have experience with, including the 1990, 1996 and 2002.

98 Points - James Suckling

The best Dom since 2002. A vintage with very restrained, powerful style that has been released non-sequentially after the 2009. This has a lighter stamp of highly curated, autolytic, toasty aromas than many recent releases. Instead, this delivers super fresh and intense aromas of lemons, grapefruit and blood-orange peel. Incredible freshness here. The palate has a very smoothly delivered, berry-pastry thread with light, sweet spices, stone fruit and fine citrus fruit. This really delivers. Drink now or hold.

96 Points - Wine Spectator

There's power to this graceful Champagne, with the vivid acidity swathed in a fine, creamy mousse and flavours of toasted brioche, kumquat, pastry cream, candied ginger and poached plum that dance across the palate. An underpinning of smoky mineral gains momentum on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2033.
