Dom Perignon Chef de Cave Legacy Edition Vintage 2008 Brut Champagne celebrates the legacy from Richard Geoffroy, Dom Perignon Chef de Cave, to his successor, Vincent Chaperon. Each box tells the story of the Dom Perignon legacy from the perspective of their two world-class winemakers: Richard Geoffroy on his tenure over the last two decades at the House of Dom Perignon, and Vincent Chaperon and the future vision he is bringing to Dom Perignon. The 2008 vintage is historic for Dom Perignon. It is a tale of an idea shared by Richard Geoffroy and Vincent Chaperon, a complete dialogue between two men and nature.
The opening bouquet is complex and luminous with a mingling of white flowers, citrus, and stone fruit on the nose. The overall effect has enhanced by the freshness of aniseed and crushed mint. The final aromas are starting to show spicy, woody, and roasted notes. After a long period of reluctance, this wine is finally opening up on the palate. There is a complete balance between the nose and the palate. Its slender, minimalist, pure, toned, athletic character now also expresses itself with warmth. The fruit has pronounced and clear. The vintage's characteristic acidity is incredibly well-integrated in this wine. Its persistence is mainly aromatic, grey, smoky, and highly promising.
Dom Perignon Chef de Cave Legacy Edition in Gift Box 2008 has bottled at 12.5% alcohol by volume. It pairs beautifully with seafood and fish such as oysters, scallops, and sea bass, and meats such as veal, quail, and foie gras. It also pairs well with cheese, such as parmesan, vegetables such as leeks, truffles, and mushrooms, and herbs and spices, including ginger, cumin, and saffron. Enjoy!
