The Dom Pérignon 2008 Magnum is a Champagne of great luxury and prestige , the result of a perfect combination of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes from an exceptional vintage. A Champagne synonymous with prestige with an aging potential of over 30 years.
A luminous champagne with a complex olfactory bouquet . On the nose there are aromas of white flowers , citrus fruits and stone fruits to which are added fresh notes of anise and mint. On the finish, spicy, woody and toasted notes are revealed. In the mouth it has the typical acidity of the vintage and closes with a very long aromatic persistence characterized by smoky notes . The Dom Pérignon 2008 Magnum is ideal for tasting on special occasions and goes perfectly with cooked or raw meat dishes, but also with shellfish, fish dishes and soft cheeses.
A historic vintage dominated by gray and breezy skies, which at the very beginning of the harvest transforms itself giving a perfect climate. In fact, the harvest takes place when the grapes are in perfect ripeness. For the production of Dom Pérignon the grapes are vinified in steel , here the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation takes place and subsequently the Champagne refines on the lees in the bottle for over 6 years.
Synonymous with luxury , prestige and elegance , a name that needs no introduction. The first Dom Pérignon was produced by Moët & Chandon in 1936. From the very beginning, the winery's ideal was to produce champagne with a unique style, with an undermining character and a perfect balance produced following principles that respected the terroirs and the seasons.
