Dom Pérignon is vintage only. Each vintage wine is created from the best grapes grown in one single year. To reinvent itself by interpreting the unique character of the seasons. To dare to declare the vintage only when the harvest meets its ideal. Such is the commitment of Dom Pérignon. Dom Pérignon Rosé requires a unique savoir-faire: to integrate the richness of Pinot Noir while remaining faithful to the style and maintaining the balance. Dom Pérignon Rosé requires a longer maturation, 9-10 years in the cellars vs 7-8 years for the blanc. Harvest Notes The full-bodied ease of the 2004 vintage will leave its mark on the history of Dom Pérignon. In stark contrast to the previous year, the vines experienced steady, problem-free vegetative growth, with abundant, sizable grape clusters. There were no weather extremes during most of the season–even the month of August was rather cool. It was the dry heat of the final weeks that made the vintage what it is. The harvest of the mature, healthy crop began on September 24.
