Classic Dom on the nose-no question. While wonderful now time will bring a more cohesive wine. Will be hard to keep your hands off of it!

Bigger and rounder than past Dom I have had. Was still flying a day after opening.

Celebrating with a good friend of mine, opened a bike shop in DC. Lemon, lime peel, waffles, slice of creaminess & bright not sharp acidity.Touch of menthol/mineral & stone flavors. Love to revisit this again in about five years.

Quite open. White flowers, lemon oil, oyster shells. Great bracing acidity. Tighter than the legacy alongside. Delicious.

Legacy edition. Fine and sharp at the front, great bright fruit. A steeliness with a slightly creamy edge. Still young but pretty amazing material and nice stuff now.

Everything is here in abundance. Maturity will magnify those traits.
What fascinates me is I believe it will drink beautifully at every stage of life but at the same time highlighting a different component. However at no point will one element dominate to shut this down and prevent it from providing immense drinking pleasure. Happy New Year everyone!

The 2008 Dom Pérignon is once again stunning. More than anything else, I am surprised by how well the 2008 drinks given all the tension and energy it holds. Then again, that is precisely what makes 2008 such a unique vintage – namely that the best wines are so chiseled and yet not at all austere. Lemon peel, almond, mint, smoke and crushed rocks are all finely sculpted, but it is the wine’s textural feel, drive and persistence that elevate it into the realm of the sublime. The 2008 will be even better with time in the cellar, but it is absolutely phenomenal even today, in the early going. Three recent bottles have all been nothing short of magnificent.

An intoxicating nose of florals, lemon and lime, gun powder, and apples.
Powerful layers of stone fruit have escaped an acid bear hug just enough to give insight into the tremendous fruit concentration that lurks here. All encompassing mineral flavors appear throughout the palate and the lengthy backend. A decadent drinking experience. BELIEVE!

Sinceramente x essere un’annata del secolo lo trovo meno grasso e complesso rispetto al 2006 o 2002. Ottimo e sicuramente negli anni potrà essere favoloso ma dopo tutto quello che si è detto mi aspettavo molto di più. Bevuto al fianco del P2 sembra un prosecco... 🤨😆
