Dom Perignon Champagne Vintage 2003 750ml
Alc Vol: 12.5%
This 75cl bottle of Dom Pérignon 2003 does not have an individual branded gift box.
Dom Pérignon is only available as a vintage champagne and is only produced in exceptional years. Each vintage is a creation, singular and unique, that expresses both the character of the year, and the character of Dom Pérignon. After at least eight years of lees ageing in the cellars, the wine enters its first phase of interest, Plenitude 1, showing quite youthful fruit and broad texture from the lees contact. The signature Dom Pérignon aromatic is that "hint smoky" character a result of the reductive winemaking where they go to extreme lengths to keep each step of the winemaking process free of oxygen. With every sip of Dom Perignon you always have that purity of fruit character, depending on the vintage you normally see the Pinot Noir fruit dominate, which are those red fruits like raspberry, peach and dark cherry. The Chardonnay adds a supporting layer of chalky texture and delicious fruit in the yellow spectrum like plum, apple and tropical notes of pineapple.
Weather:The 2003 vintage was one of pre-eminence: a year like no other, defined by extremes. The vineyard was first touched by severe spring frosts that left a lasting mark on the Champagne region before being struck with an unparalleled heatwave. As a result, the crop was perfectly ripe and healthy but left a particularly small harvest: this was the most precocious since 1822.
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru
Grape Varieties: 53% Pinot Noir, 47% Chardonnay
Ageing: 8 years on the lees
Dosage: 5 g/l
Drink: Now to 2030
Tasting Note: The bouquet spirals through a light-filled, floral softness to the minerality that epitomises Dom Pérignon. On the palate, a striking demanding aromatic with bundles of fruits and structure. The finish is long. One of Richard Geoffrey's favourite vintages to create due to the hot weather of the vintage.
