Dom Perignon Luminous 2008

Wine Region: Champagne - France

Grape: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: The nose is complex and bright, a mixture of white flowers, citrus and stone fruit. The overall effect is enhanced by the freshness of aniseed and crushed mint. The final wine offers aromas begin to show spicy, woody and toast. There is a complete balance between the nose and palate. The slender character, minimalist, pure, toned and athletic now also expressed warmly. The fruit is sharp and clear. The characteristic acidity of the harvest is remarkably well integrated.
