Dom Perignon Legacy Edition 2008

Tasting Notes

There’s power to this graceful Champagne, with the vivid acidity swathed in a fine, creamy mousse and flavors of toasted brioche, kumquat, pastry cream, candied ginger and poached plum that dance across the palate. An underpinning of smoky mineral gains momentum on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2033.

Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, November 2018

This is a limited edition launched in late 2018 to celebrate the retirement of Richard Geoffroy. The ‘regular’ 2008 will be released early in 2019 and is exactly the same cuvée disgorged a little bit later. So much more austere than the 2009, and really, really dense! The acidity is so much more obvious and there’s so much packed in there.
