Often considered as a "Jet-Set" Champagne, Dom Pérignon rosé nevertheless has many assets to seduce the most demanding champagne lovers. This cuvée is indeed particularly sensitive to the vintage effect due to the importance of the Pinot Noir it contains. However, an unripe Pinot is not a good Pinot, we swear you so.
The old vintages (1960-1980) had a certain tendency to appeal to the tastes of the time, which is normal you will say. They were then much higher in sugar (between 3x and 5x sometimes more) than are the vintages today.
It is said that the high sugar content linked to the natural acidity of champagne wines allowed them to age without a hitch. However, as they age, champagnes have an unfortunate tendency to lose their bubbles. And a rosé, sweet, bubble-free, and potentially slightly oxidized wine, if not kept very carefully, may not be to everyone's taste today.
Fortunately, the "modern" vintages benefit from more advantageous climates. The amounts of sugar are much lower or even absent and the wines are better balanced and more regular.
This 2004 vintage is a great success for those who like lively, precise and chiseled rosés. No exuberance of red fruits and jam. Here you will find black fruits, cocoa, spices and notes of sap and wood. A real champagne for connoisseurs
