The creative dialogue continues: Dom Perignon and Lady Gaga bring a new creation to life, the fruit of their shared ambition to discover harmony in tensions, and create by juxtaposing polarities and dualities.
For Dom Perignon there is an interplay between the personality of the year and the timeless aesthetic ideal, the dialogue of freshness and maturity, shadows and light. For Lady Gaga there is the clashing of cultural codes, the paradox between the popular and the avant-garde, seizing possession of the classical rules and bending them to push the boundaries of creativity.
A limited edition that revels in creative tension. For the end-of-year season, the two creators manifest these expressions of tension in a limited-edition design for Dom Perignon Rose Vintage 2008 that feels to be in self-expansion. Its destructured shape pushes out from within, as though escaping its own form, giving the inflated metallic cover an ethereal quality.
The elements pull against each other harmoniously, and capture the intense vibration appreciated by those who feel an emotional resonance with the creations of Dom Perignon and Lady Gaga – an inspired collaboration first unveiled last year.
About Dom Perignon Rose Vintage 2008: When Dom Perignon chooses to be rose, it is a declaration of freedom. Freedom to cast convention aside and push its own boundaries, seizing the red of the pinot noir grape in its primal radiance, capturing its vital power in a bold, assertive assemblage.
The bouquet of Dom Perignon Rose Vintage 2008 instantly opens with raspberries, rapidly joined by notes of violet. Greener nuances then arrive, evoking angelica. On the palate the acidic foundation – the signature of the vintage – articulates the structure of the pinot, vibrating the heart of the wine. The affirmed, persistent finish is peonies and white pepper.
This shows incredible depth of fruit with strawberry, cherry and phenolics. Full-bodied and layered with an incredible, three-dimensional element to the wine. This is so transparent and dynamic with dark fruit, yet it remains vivid and bright. Refined and precise, it goes on and on. Really savory, fresh and incredibly pinot-noir-like. What a wine. So drinkable now, but it will age for many years ahead.
An impeccably balanced and graceful sparkling rosé with a plushly cream mousse flavors. It's hard to tell where the firm spine of well-honed acidity and the expressive range of pureed raspberry, candied ginger, tangerine and lemon thyme flavors begin or end. A rich hint of smoky toasted brioche plays on the finish. Drink now through 2033.
The 2008 Champagne Rosé is another elegant expression, offering notes of cardamom, strawberry, and dried flowers. The palate is dry and well-structured and is balanced and long on the finish, with notes of dried orange peel, redcurrant, and fantastic salinity. It has a great application at the table and should continue to improve.
Offering up aromas of white flowers, red berries, toast and fresh pastry, Dom Pérignon rosé 2008 is medium to full-bodied, tense and vibrant, with a vinous texture and sapid nuances. Delicately phenolic, this is a pure and racy gastronomic Champagne that’s beginning to drink with style, and concludes with a long and penetrating finish.
