One of the most epic champagne vintages in recent years, 2008 was dominated by grey, overcast skies and just when the harvest was getting underway, the weather cleared up, offering plentiful sunshine and prolonged north-northeasterly winds. The grapes were riper than anyone dared hope, and had a truly outstanding balance, and the vines were in perfect health. Dom Perignon, a widely known and loved champagne house that only produces vintage champagne, was awarded 96+pts by Wine Advocate for their vintage 2008 release and was complimented to be "the finest release of this iconic cuvée since the 1996 vintage".
Released later than the standard bottle, we are pleased to offer today the Dom Perignon 2008 in magnum. If you have been so lucky to have tasted the 2008 in a standard bottle already, you should definitely consider taking this magnum which will give you experience up to another level! -

The finest release of this iconic cuvée since the 1996 vintage, the 2008 Dom Pérignon wafts from the glass with an incipiently complex bouquet of Meyer lemon, green apple, dried white flowers and oyster shell, with only subtle hints of the smoky, autolytic aromas that have been such a prominent signature of recent releases. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and complete, its notable flesh and amplitude controlled by incisive acids, with a youthfully exuberant but elegant mousse and a long, beautifully delineated finish. Considering the sheer size of this cuvée, it's a remarkable achievement and a fitting release with which to conclude Richard Geoffroy's tenure as chef de cave. Given the 2008's intensity and balance, I suspect purists will be anticipating later disgorgements with lower dosage and more time on the lees with particular enthusiasm. Tasted three times, with consistent results. – William Kelley
