Dom Perignon Brut 2008 Chef de Cave Legacy 750ml
Product DescriptionDom Perignon Brut 2008 Chef de Cave Legacy 750ml
With every vintage, Dom Pérignon expresses its signature style through the individuality of a single year. And for decades, Cellar Master Richard Geoffroy has championed its quest to create “always a vintage wine”. Soon, Vincent Chaperon, who has been at his side since 2005, will take on that mantle. Dom Pérignon marks this seminal moment with the Legacy Edition. This exemplary 2008 vintage reflects the very best of both winemakers – and the House’s enduring commitment to its vision.
Working so closely together these 13 years past, each man has inspired and influenced the other, so that they think almost as one. The Legacy Edition is a symbol of the ambition they share for Dom Pérignon. This remarkable wine was created from the astounding harvest of 2008, saved late in the day by a gloriously sunny September. Pure and toned, with incredible balance between nose and palate, it is the culmination of their two extraordinary talents and nature.
Richard’s own legacy at Dom Pérignon speaks for itself. Between 1990 and 2009, he declared no fewer than 15 vintages in its cellars. He has been endlessly inventive, exploring new aspects of Dom Pérignon’s personality and daring to take risks on his mission to bring the grapes to their utmost ripeness. Alongside him for 13 harvests and four vintages, Vincent brings to the House his own audacious intuition and a passion for progress.
