A collaborative release of Dom Perignon 2008 vintage Champagne, created by the house and rock legend Lenny Kravitz. Kravitz has created a look for the bottle inspired by goldsmiths, with the iconic shield label fashioned out of hammered metal. The wine in the bottle took longer than the 2009-vintage to be ready – a first in the house's history – and the result is a complex, balanced and well-integrated Champagne.Tasting Notes (1)
Dull, grey skies were common during 2008, despite it being a year in a decade with plentiful and impressive amounts of sunshine. Spring and summer brought the same lack of sunlight and the same longing for high temperatures. Fortunately, September saved the vintage, late in the day and with miraculous success. Just when the harvest was getting under way (15 September), weather conditions finally achieved perfection: blue skies and prolonged north-north-easterly winds. Picking was spread out over a long period in order to benefit from this positive turn of events. The grapes were riper than anyone dared hope, and had truly outstanding balance. The vines were in perfect health.
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 offered by the wine are starting to show spicy,woody and roasted notes.
After a long period of reluctance, this wine is finally opening up. There is complete balance between the nose and 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 mainlyaromatic, grey, smoky and highly promising.
