Dom Perignon Limited Edition by Iris Van Herpen 2004
On the nose, aromas of almond and powdered cocoa develop gradually into white fruit with hints of dried flowers. Classic toasted notes give a rounded finish and denote a fully realized maturity. On the palate, the wine instantly traces an astoundingly fine line between density and weightlessness. Its precision is extreme, tactile, dark and chiselled. The full taste lingers with the utmost elegance on a sappy, spicy note.
The Dom Perignon limited edition collaboration with Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen centers on metamorphosis: signifying the closure of one period and the birth of another, and a powerful symbol of evolution, transformation and renaissance. Throughout its history, Dom Perignon has been intricately linked to the concept of metamorphosis. The spiritual legacy of Dom Pérignon constantly reinvents itself throughout the ages, selectively choosing when to emerge in the form of a new vintage.
