Dom Perignon Champagne Cuvee Vintage Rose France 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1996 vintage has all the inimitable traits of Dom Perignon Rose. It has the lightheartedness, vivacity and vibrancy of the Pinot Noir grape while still maintaining the balance between the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that is unique to the Dom Perignon style. This play of contrasts reaches such a degree of density and sophistication that it achieves a sublime harmony.Color: Coppery pink with light orange highlights. On the nose: The aroma of malt rapidly leads into that of well-ripened fruit, nectarine and wild strawberries, complemented by smoky, peaty accents. On the palate: In a paradox that typifies the vintage, concentration and movement vie ach other with an affirmation of boldness and authority. The tastes progress with strength-tense, radiant and sharp. The finish is firm, underscored with a slightly vanilla-spicy note.
