More open than any I’ve tried so far. Loads of midpalate with a sweetness and great structure.,

The 2008 Dom Pérignon is a huge, powerful Champagne and also clearly one of the wines of the vintage. This is one of the most reticent bottles I have tasted. So much so that I am thinking about holding off opening any more bottles! The 2008 has always offered a striking interplay of fruit and structure. Today, the richness of the fruit is especially evident. Readers who own the 2008 should be thrilled, but patience is a must. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2021)

A wine of tremendous energy. Much like other Champagnes of this vintage, the acid plays a starring role which, to some palates, may be a bit much at this early stage in its evolution. However, with some air, it relaxes a bit and begins to show off its character…and this is a wine of tremendous character. Lemons, minerals and smoke dominate now but it’s the sheer depth that pulls you in and won’t let you go. My first experience with the 2008 and I have to say that it met my lofty expectations. This is a legend in the making.

The murdered grande dame ☠️⚰️🥀

Not my first rant about the state of wines in my hometown (Kuching, Malaysia) but this was the last straw before my self-imposed dry spell. Not a single wine on any shelves here has been spared from the deadly kiss of the sun. Ffff!!! This came out of a fridge when bought, so how the f did this wine get screwed up so badly. Is it that hard to nail your cold chain, Diageo/LVMH?! Or perhaps just check in on your local partners once in a while to see if the wines are kept cool? How could you have allowed this masterpiece to be reduced to mere tonic water. It's a wonder why the wine market still exists here. Not wasting a single dime any more of wines from local retailers. Ffff!!!

Citrus; finger lime, smoky minerals. Bright, a little bitter and with an interesting saline quality. On the palate this is weightless, flush with beautiful acid, and a texture that is subtle. Hint of marzipan. Not quite the aromatic complexity I was expecting, but maybe that will come with age.

Pleasantly tart and crisp. Fine bubbles, just perfect. Rivals best Cristal I’ve had.

Classic Dom on the nose-no question. While wonderful now time will bring a more cohesive wine. Will be hard to keep your hands off of it!

Bigger and rounder than past Dom I have had. Was still flying a day after opening.
