Dom Perignon Brut Limited Edition By Michael Riedel 2006

External Review by WineExpress.com:

German abstract artist Michael Riedel has collaborated with Dom Pérignon to create the packaging for a limited edition of two vintages: Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006 and Dom Pérignon Rosé 2004. The Frankfurt-born experimental artist is known for his appropriations of text and use of digitization. For Dom Pérignon, Riedel digitally deconstructed and superimposed the letters D and P hundreds of times to create the impression of movement across the frost-white boxes and bottles, with vibrant green embellishment. This highly collectible gift packaging surround the outstanding 2006 vintage Dom Perignon Brut Champagne, scored 96 points by the Wine Advocate and 97 by Antonio Galloni who said "The 2006 Dom Pérignon is a beautifully balanced, harmonious Dom Pérignon that strikes an incredibly appealing stylistic middle ground. Rich, voluptuous and creamy, the 2006 shows off fabulous intensity in a style that brings together the ripeness of 2002 with the greater sense of verve and overall freshness that is such a signature of the 2004. Bass notes and a feeling of phenolic grip on the finish recall the 2003, as the Pinot Noir is particularly expressive today. After an irregular summer that saw elevated temperatures in July followed by cooler, damp conditions in August, more favorable weather returned in September, pushing maturation ahead and leading to a long, protracted harvest. The 2006 falls into the family of riper, more voluptuous Dom Pérignons, but without veering into the level of opulence seen in vintages such as 2002." Limited! All Champagne orders require 3-5 days processing. No express delivery is available on Champagne.
