Harvest

Every creative process has its constraints. For Dom Perignon, it's the vintage. It is a commitment to be the witness of a single year's harvest. 

Magnetism

Beyond the contrasts of summer, the September sun signs this vintage, writing it down alongside a series of exceptional years. The mystery of Pinot Noir is its beating heart, singing a bright and vibrant note. Captivating bouquet, bursting with fruit, a wave of mellow and crunchy: Dom Perignon Vintage Rose 2006 Lenny Kravitz Edition takes us by the hand, and in that motion, reveals its magnetism.

Inspiration

Exploring its affinities with those who inspire the world, Dom Perignon offered Lenny Kravitz the design creativity of this limited edition. To complete and enhance the Dom Perignon experience, the artist delved into the glamorous and classic esthetic of the Hotel de Roxie, his Parisian address. Lenny Kravitz intends to share his vision of the ritual, of celebration, and of inspiration; foundations of his creative process. "I feel like part of the Dom Perignon family and I have been fortunate to have become involved with this iconic brand with a storied history. This has inspired me to create things that will continue that story."

 

 

This iconic house posses the name of the man who is believed to be the god father of Champagne. Lead by enigmatic winemaker Richard Geoffroy, he has continued to prove that he is a force to be reckoned with and has been turning out great vintages and even far more superlative second release cuvées in the P2 range.  Geoffroy believes that champagnes age in plenitudes. This super talented winemaker has a theory that champagnes in the wine-makers cellars head off on a period of change and development then reach a plateau before heading off on another journey of increased complexity and development. As such, great vintages of Dom Pérignon are held back in the cellar with the yeast inside the bottle to allow the wine to take on another stratosphere of complexity and depth. Enter P2 - a wine that must be enjoyed at least once in your lifetime and more if you can justify it!   

"At 30%, this represents one of the highest doses of Pinot noir red wine in a blended champagne rosé, up from 17-20% in the past, in line with Geoffroy's mandate to create more substantial style. One year after release it upheld tamarillo, blood orange, rose hip, pomegranate and strawberry exuberance. But in more recent tastings, two years after release, its hue has deepened to a medium crimson copper and its primary fruits have evolved to a more secondary and savoury demeanour  of toast, mixed spices, liquorice and pipe smoke. The reductive style of the house speaks in flinty complexity. As fruit fades, the textural grip and bitterness of phenolic structure and not insubstantial Pinot noir tannins are now more prominent on the finish, declaring that it has past its finest days. It nonetheless holds outstanding persistance and character."
