A bolder expression of its iconic blanc champagne, the 2006 rosé maintains the intensity characteristic of Dom Pérignon, with intriguing aromas of dark spices and candied fruit, and smoky accents.
The maison’s 26th vintage rosé overcame challenging weather to develop an appealing salinity, with pinot noir red wine from the finest vineyards in Champagne imparting richer, darker flavours.

Blend and Origin
Warm and dry weather characterised the 2006 vintage, though the month of August proved to be testing, with unseasonably cool and damp weather threatening to allow botrytis to develop. Grapes benefited from warm, dry weather in September, and the harvest began on 11th of the month, just a few days later than the previous vintage.
