Like all of the other major champagne houses, Dom Perignon doesn't produce a vintage rose in every vintage so, when they do release one, you know that they felt it was something truly special and worthy of its own release. That is most certainly the case with their 2005 Rose and it is currently firing on all cylinders. James Suckling calls it "a mind-blowing wine" and Chef de Cave, Richard Geoffroy, compares it to their legendary 1990 vintage - a fantastic Champagne year. A perfect balance of Chardonnay to Pinot Noir, this rose contains over 27% red wine and spent over 10 years in the cellar before being disgorged. Now offering up notes of guava, curry leaf and stone fruits followed by cocoa, toasted spices and a smoky minerality with touches of cedar and tobacco commonly associated with great old red wines, compliments of the Pinot Noir.
"...like a Volnay in its perfume and delicacy, but as substantial as fine red burgundy." - Jancis Robinson

99 JS: A mind-blowing wine. This is super subtle and intense with aromas of peaches, light strawberry and cream. Also shows rose petal and cooked peaches. Medium to full body, with ultra-fine tannins that feel like fine silk. The finish goes on for minutes. It floats across the palate. The winemaker says the closet vintage to this is the 1990, but I think this is better. - James Suckling
95 AG: The 2005 Dom Perignon Rose is intriguing, complex and multi-faceted. Brisk and refreshing, with a slightly herbal (but not unpleasant character), the 2005 is superb today. Over time, the wine has acquired a bit more depth and body than it showed at the outset. Even with all of its depth, though, I would not suggest cellaring the 2005 too long given the challenges of the year. Hints of blood orange, mint, sage and dried flowers add the closing shades of nuance. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
95 WS: This rose Champagne is rich and vinous, offering smoky minerality up front, expanding to show dried raspberry, mandarin orange zest, brioche and espresso creme flavors that ride the fine, lacy mousse. Spice and mineral details persist on the racy finish. Drink now through 2027. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. - Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator
