Champagne Dom Perignon Overview
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 elaboration in the cellars, the wine embodies the perfect balance of Dom Pérignon, the Plénitude of harmony.

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.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru
Grape Varieties: 53% Pinot Noir, 47% Chardonnay
Ageing: 8 years on the lees

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.

“Richard Geoffroy is particularly fond and defensive of this because so few people managed a fine wine in this heatwave vintage and he describes it as ‘a triumph of winemaking! Most exhilarating and satisfying. And it really created a team spirit that has continued to this day’. Yield was only 20 hl/ha. He admits it was released too early. ‘Wait for P2 2003!’ he assures us.
Much less expressive nose than the 2004 so I suggested people tasted it beforehand so that it would not be overwhelmed by the 2004. Great tension. There was some suggestion of a dry spice – a hint of a cinnamon stick. Great balance. It just falls away a little on the end.

“Once again, the 2003 Dom Pérignon shows its pedigree. Ample, powerful and beautifully resonant in the glass, the 2003 is built on a core of huge fruit and serious phenolic structure, both of which make it resemble a still wine, perhaps a fine white Burgundy with a bit of bottle age. There is more than enough density to allow the 2003 to age well for a number of decades. ”

“Pale greenish gold. Lively and very fresh. Really zippy, I thought it could have been Salon! Vindication of Richard Geoffroy's faith in this wine.”

“Fresh and fragrant straw and lemon nose, mellow in style with less precision and lower on its usual toasty impact. Lately, it has been developing an exquisite charred complexity. Ripe, fleshy, honeyed fluffy palate with a touch of phenolic bitterness, however, none of the overripe characters of the vintage. Soft acidity and approachable style. Today, overt, monumental and beautifully textured. One of the finest champagnes of the vintage.”
