Dom Perignon Lenny Kravitz Special Edition 2008
Lenny Kravitz's attachment to creativity in the broadest sense has led him to cross the boundaries of disciplines: from music to cinema, from photography to design. It is from his talent as a designer that the artist creates for Dom Pérignon in 2019. Inspired by the atmosphere of champagne tasting, within his studio Kravitz Design, he creates a collection of three limited editions
The artist grew up with a community of minds. Marked by this family heritage, animated by the desire to unite inspiring personalities, he celebrates the passion of creating ... Creator of a collection of limited editions, he signs for Dom Pérignon, a bottle, a candelabra box and a table -bar, thus elevating the tasting experience
Lenny Kravitz reveals the emblematic coat of arms by borrowing the codes of goldsmithing. He works a hammered metal texture on the surface of the coat of arms. The patina of metal is a sign of unalterable contemporaneity.
The finest release of this iconic cuvée since the 1996 vintage, the 2008 Dom Pérignon wafts from the glass with an incipiently complex bouquet of Meyer lemon, green apple, dried white flowers and oyster shell, with only subtle hints of the smoky, autolytic aromas that have been such a prominent signature of recent releases. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and complete, its notable flesh and amplitude controlled by incisive acids, with a youthfully exuberant but elegant mousse and a long, beautifully delineated finish. Considering the sheer size of this cuvée, it's a remarkable achievement and a fitting release with which to conclude Richard Geoffroy's tenure as chef de cave. Given the 2008's intensity and balance, I suspect purists will be anticipating later disgorgements with lower dosage and more time on the lees with particular enthusiasm.Rated 96+/100 The Wine AdvocateRated 96/100 Wine SpectatorRated 98/100 Jeb DunnuckRated 98/100 James Suckling
