Dom Perignon 2008 Lenny Kravitz Edition 750ml
The 2008 Dom Pérignon continues to show very well, offering up a pretty bouquet of Anjou pear, fresh peach, citrus oil, fresh pastry, smoke and iodine. On the palate, it's full-bodied, lively and incisive, with an elegantly textural attack and a creamy core of fruit that's underpinned by a bright but nicely integrated spine of acidity. The finish is long, saline and well-defined. As I wrote earlier this year, this is the finest Dom Pérignon since 1996, Richard Geoffroy's push for additional ripeness working well with the late-maturing, high-acid vintage. While it can be appreciated young, the 2008 will really start to blossom with five or six years of bottle age.

"Last year Dom Pérignon named Lenny Kravitz its first-ever Global Creative Director. Now a year later it’s announcing the continuance of that partnership in the form of a collection of three limited-edition Dom Pérignon that will be for sale this winter, all three designed by Kravitz in his Kravitz Design studio... Lenny Kravitz enhances the iconic label by borrowing from the craft of goldsmiths to work hammered metal on the surface of the shield, creating a patina that lends the metal an inalterable contemporary vibe."
