Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2008 Dom Pérignon is simply extraordinary. A wine of myriad dimensions, the 2008 explodes in all directions from the very first taste. Deep, powerful and yet wonderfully translucent, the 2008 boasts remarkable purity throughout. Crushed rocks, citrus, chalk and fresh spring water are some of the signatures. The 2008 is a stunning Champagne by any measure. The 2008 won’t be released until at least 2019, but it is already shaping up to be epic. It’s not too early to start setting aside the cash for this utterly magnificent, riveting Champagne. Drink till 2058.

Sokolin 2008 Moet Chandon Dom Perignon (Lenny Kravitz Labels) Tasting Notes:

Some wines go far above and beyond what's expected of them, delivering a performance that would normally come with a much higher price. This vintage lands safely into that category of overachievers, bringing a layered, complex texture that you can spend months deciphering, and an intensity of flavor that could topple mountains.

The wine is otherworldly pure, and the flavors rush forward like the mightiest tidal wave, exciting your tastebuds in a flash. The deeper you sink into this bottle, the more it sings to you, with strong notes of citrus, chalk, and incredibly fresh spring water. It's a multi-dimensional drinking experience and a journey that it's best to take slowly. Give yourself time to fully understand what your palate is going through, and you may find viticultural enlightenment. Share those same feelings with your loved ones, as great wine is at its greatest when shared with our friends and families.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Region Champagne: The sharp, biting acidity, cutting through the richness; the explosive force that shatters the bubbles as they rise to the surface; the intense flavor and compelling, lively mouthfeel; these are all hallmarks of a good Champagne. Most wines are made from a combination of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, but there are pure-Chardonnay variants and ones that blend only Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. As a result, most wines come with a feeling of familiarity, if not nostalgia. Each Champagne house has its own unique style, so different bottles of Champagne may not resemble each other outside of the core varietal strengths. The soil composition of the subregion is characterized by belemnite and chalk, which lets it absorb heat during the daytime and release it at night. This terroir helps create the feeling of airy, playful lightness of fine sparkling wine. These wines were originally marketed towards royalty, and you can feel a hint of that elusive blue-blood elegance and confidence while drinking one. A good Champagne carries you away like a hurricane carries small debris, and you can feel the powerful life force in each bubble even. The characteristic Champagne "pop" has become a staple at parties and celebrations around the globe - when you hear it, good times are right around the corner.
Type of Wine Champagne: Nothing like a refreshing, vivacious glass of fine Champagne during a hot summer afternoon. Typically combining Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, each Champagne house has a distinct style. Whether you want to sample a single varietal (such as the 100% Chardonnay blanc de blancs) or a tasteful blend, no region can compete with Champagne.

  1. It needs more years in the bottle, that's for sure.

    Dom Perignon is a luxury brand for a reason. I believe they can't go wrong with wine, I'm sure of that. I loved almost everything about the 2008 edition, the color was so beautiful, golden and glowing - your glass really looks elegant on a dinner table in a fancy restaurant. I think this champagne is still too young to give the final verdict, but it will improve its complexity and balance over time. It needs more years in the bottle, that's for sure. I don't regret trying it now, though. It went really great with the dinner and it was a stunning experience despite the youthfulness. The taste is truly pleasant.

    Incredible! I bought this champagne to celebrate my boyfriend’s promotion at work and I don’t regret it at all! He’s a true wine enthusiast and was very happy with my choice. And so was I. I don’t know much about wines, but this blew me away, it’s so drinkable you don’t even notice it. It brought luxury and that final touch to our dinner, it had the loveliest smell and the taste was… wow! I simply don’t know what else to say because I was speechless. It was so smooth and silky, and lingered in my mouth for a full minute, I think. I hope I’ll have a chance to drink it again, I’m sure I’d recognize it anywhere.
