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... 🤨😆

This is the 08 disgorgement of 96 oeno. Good but Pinot was shut down just showed chard. 13 disgorgement better at the moment.

Lemon peel, almonds, and flinty minerality. Can’t wait for the next bottle in a few years! — 2008 on October 31, 2019

Simply one of the best champagnes out there. Brioche, lime zest, wood. Firm. From a for us remarkable year on a for us remarkable day.
