Dom Pérignon has a creative ambition: the quest for harmony as a source of emotion. All creative processes have their limitations. For Dom Pérignon, it’s the vintage - an absolute commitment to representing the character of the harvest for a single year, whatever challenges it brings, even going as far as not declaring a vintage.

THE VINTAGE

Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 comes from the harvest of a warm, dry year marked by contrasts: the intensely hot July, the cool, damp august, and the heat of September. The vintage was saved by this last heatwave.

TASTING NOTES

On the Nose: The bouquet is mesmerizing, ripe, and deep. The opening notes are a blend of dark spicy notes and cocoa which develop very quickly into fruit aromas. Fruit reigns supreme, with roasted fig and apricot and candied orange. The overall effect exudes smoky accents.

On the Palate: The fullness of this wine is immediately striking. Its intensity and succulence set the tone through the sweetness and crispness of the flavors. The silky mouthfeel melts into a smooth, tight, and grainy structure with just a hint of vegetable flavors. This wine expresses an appealing brininess and saline character.

PAIRING

Rosé Vintage 2006 demands a simple cuisine, modest, pure, authentic, a traditional cuisine from southern Europe, originating from Italy, Spain or France. One can play on mellow and rich textures which the wine integrates perfectly. Rosé Vintage 2006 responds to propensities and contrasts, dishes with strong personalities reveal the form of exuberance which characterizes the vintage.

The Dom Perignon Rosé 2006 is simply amazing. Notes of raspberry, spices and mint jump from the glass in a seductive combination. The texture in the mouth is of precise, crystalline, laser-like tannins in an opulent style. A very great success in a vintage that was not always easy in Champagne.

97 points Vinous

The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is every bit as captivating as it was last year, maybe even more so. At times powerful, but in other moments finessed, the 2006 constantly changes in the glass, revealing a different shade of its personality with every taste. Perhaps most importantly, the 2006 seems to have gained a level of precision and pure sophistication it did not show last year, when it was quite a bit less put together. Back then, the 2006 was a wine of tremendous potential; today that potential is starting to be realized. Quite simply, the 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is a magical Champagne. Don’t miss it. (AG) 97+

This graceful 2006 shows lovely freshness, featuring a pronounced note of pink grapefruit granita layered with finely detailed accents of toasted nut, lemon thyme, smoky mineral and crystallized honey. Plushly creamy in texture, with a steely streak of acidity well-knit throughout and firming the lasting, spiced finish.

Loads of complexity on offer here, from brioche to dried peaches to strawberries and cream and on to rhubarb fool, pomegranate pastries and bread crumbs. The mousse is wonderfully integrated to the edgy peaches and notes that feather the finest line between oxidation and reduction. Very layered and linear, this is an incredibly long and mind-bending Champagne.

The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé continues to show very well, unfurling in the glass with aromas of bitter orange, dried white flowers, red berries, toast and woodsmoke. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and muscular, with all the phenolic structure and depth that one would expect from a rosé that contains more than 20% still red wine, concluding with a sapid and chalky finish. As I wrote earlier this year, this is a vinous, gastronomic rosé that numbers among the decided successes of the 2006 vintage.

This builds structure and complexity into the gentle ripeness of 2006: The wine’s floral strawberry notes develop with bright energy, the flavors turning toward raspberries, fresh almonds and chalk. It’s pretty great on any vintage terms.
