On the nose: The nose reveals itself in successive waves of dried flowers, orange peel, gingerbread, exotic tobacco and grilled aromas.
On the palate: The palate is sophisticated: tense, incisive, serous and silky all at once, with a patina. The finish is firm and surprisingly fruity, with an unusual satiny note.

The 1988 Dom Pérignon Œnothèque Rosé (magnum) opens with the classic, reductive DP bouquet before layers of fruit flesh out in the glass. Weightless yet also energetic, the 1988 Œno is also a bit more generous than the regular release. Tasting both side by side is a revelation. The airy, perfumed finish alone is captivating.

To have the privilege to try your first ever Dom Perignon 1988 P3 Rosé Magnum with Chef de Cave Mr Vincent Chaperon in Dom Perignon’s home was an experience I will never forget!
On the eye beautiful darkening orange bubbles that at first glance appear as a much younger Champagne. It is really clear that we are just at the start of the drinking window for this power house of the wine world which will be enjoyed the next few decades.
On the nose, encaptivating passion fruit, mint, wild berries, and precise orange citric.
On the palate extremely fresh, balanced minerality in mouth, finishing with a long lasting delicious fruity acidity.
