Vinous 97 points - I have a distinct feeling the 2002 Dom Perignon Rose is still not showing all of its cards. A bit more restrained in its expression than the alluring 2002 Blanc, the Rose is quite vertical in its structure and overall feel. Hints of cranberry, mint and spice emerge in an exotic, powerful Champagne that deftly balances fruit, acidity and structure. This is a fabulous showing from the 2002. Disgorged 2012.
Wine Advocate 98 points - Unfortunately there is only one new release from Dom Perignon on the market, but what a wine it is! The 2002 Brut Rose explodes from the glass with endless layers of huge, voluptuous fruit, A big, full-bodied wine, the 2002 is probably the most overly vinous, intense Rose ever made by long-time Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy. Layers of cool, insistent minerality balance the fruit beautifully on the crystalline, vivid finish. The 2002 will be nearly impossible to resist young, but take my word for it; the wine is extremely closed right now. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2032. (Nov 2012)
Dom Pérignon Rosé offers the finest balance of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, skillfully tuned by the Chef de Cave, transforming the wine into a style that is exclusive only to Dom Pérignon.
|The story of Dom Perignon began in the 17th century at the Abbey of Hautvillers. Centuries later, the story has become a legend, the product a brand, and the brand a myth.
