Dom Perignon 1996 Rose 75 cl

The thrill of Pinot Noir
Dom Pérignon Rosé is a tribute to Pinot Noir. To work with Pinot Noir continually requires excellence and humility. In that regard, Dom Pérignon Rosé is a paradox to the point of contradiction as it is the perfect balance of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Although it took over ten years to reach the light of day, the color of Dom Pérignon Rosé dares to express all the tension between youth and maturity, between exhibition and restraint.

Dom Pérignon Rosé keeps the Pinot Noir promise by making it sing out loud, on a clear, vibrant and fragile note.

The 1996 Harvest
The year was full of contrasts and the summer changeable, with the wetter periods never quite making up for the earlier hydric deficit. Eventually, in the month before grape-picking (September 16), it was as much the spells of hot weather as the influence of north-easterly winds that led to the original maturity of the vintage.

Description

On the nose, the aroma of malt rapidly leads into well-ripened fruit, nectarine and wild strawberries, complemented by smoky, peaty accents. .

In the mouth, in a paradox that typifies the vintage, concentration and movement vie each other with an affirmation of boldness and authority. The tastes progress with strength – tense, radiant and sharp. The finish is firm, underscored with a slightly vanilla-spicy note.

Chardonnay , Pinot Noir

Lobster, crab, caviar, foie gras, strawberries

Chilled at 10°C – 12°C

Three 1996s from Dom Pérignon are special. After having compared original releases and Œnothèque bottlings across a number of vintages going back to 1964, I am increasingly of the belief that the most enjoyable Dom Pérignons are impeccably stored bottles of the original release. The 1996 Dom Pérignon Rosé is simply off the charts. What a wine. The 1996 Rosé has begun to fill out rather dramatically. Today it is rich, powerful and totally seductive.

97/100 (September 2010)

It is always a special occasion when I get the chance and opportunity to enjoy a bottle of Dom Perignon Rose, I can never stress enough the importance of provenance and cellaring of these Vintages, you can try a bottle that has been cellared correctly and compare it to one that has been exposed to changes in temperature or place and the difference is worlds apart!

You must also take care with the serving temperature as too cold or too warm can ruin the best experience.

The 1996 Rose Vintage has such a great reputation and quality that really set it apart. Precise, concentrated, and extremely powerful pinot noir.

Perfect bubbles dance on your tongue as the aromas of strawberries, red berries, liquorish, floral, and spices all come together so perfectly.

The Dom Perignon Rose 1996 is very similar to the famous 1990 and 2002 Vintages, which clearly are some of the best.

Food pairing is never easy for such a stunning Wine however this time we enjoyed Dublin Bay Prawns with light sprinkles of Beluga Caviar, and for dessert wild strawberry pie & cream.
