Dom Perignon Rosé 1996

Tasting Notes

The 1996 Dom Pérignon Rosé is brilliant from start to finish, and this bottle is one of the finest I have had. Sweet, expansive and generous, the wine blossoms on the palate with extraordinary grace as layers of silky, perfumed fruit open up in the glass. This is a beautiful Dom Pérignon Rosé.

quote from the Hedonist's Gazette ''The Dom Pérignon Rosé (out of magnum, no less) was deep rose-colored and incredibly flavorful with the weight of a grand cru red Burgundy with bubbles and lots of freshness.''

The 1996 DP Rose is awesome Champagne. They do improve with age but if someone hands me a bottle, I'm not going to wait. ………...My advice: if you can afford it, buy it. Posted on the erbobertparker.com messageboard

Bright, amber-tinged pink with pinpoint bubbles. Deep, smoky and complex, with a kaleidoscopic bouquet incorporating wild strawberry, peach, apricot, chestnut honey and cured meat. A firm, strikingly concentrated midweight with powerful flavors of orange peel, raspberry, redcurrant, baking spice and smoked meat and gentle supporting acidity. Smoky, sweet and long on the back, with a slowly building impression of acidity that suggests this will be a long ager. As usual, a stunning Champagne.*.
