Dom Pérignon Legacy Edition 2008

Wine Cellar is proud to launch the most eagerly awaited wine in years – the 2008 Dom Pérignon Legacy Edition. This special edition, which sold out on release in major markets, celebrates the first ever non-sequential release in Dom Pérignon history. The fruitier 2009 was released ahead of the incredibly tight, yet muscular 2008 in what is quickly being regarded as the greatest modern-day Champagne vintage. The 2008 also marks the final release of Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy. After 28 vintages, the title will transition to Vincent Chaperon who has been at Dom Pérignon since 2005.

The last 3 cases are exclusive to Private Edition customers.

 

Dom Perignon Legacy Edition 2008

 

The 2008 is 50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir and 100% Grand and Premier Cru. Aged for 9 years on the lees, it carries a dosage of 4 g/ℓ. The nose dances with lime, cool melon, fresh butter and minerals, leading to hints of kelp and hay. The palate is lean and tight and uncoils into a powerful, massively structured finish. Wow!

Wine Cellar has received the bulk of SA’s allocation and yet we expect it to sell out instantly. The global average price is R2,908 ex. VAT, making this a terrific investment.
