Champagne Dom Perignon Overview
+
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.

Tasting note: A pale tomato red, with a distinctly orange tinge thanks to the age. The nose incites a burst of red fruits and complexity. The palate is concentrated, full and rich, with strawberry notes and a suggestion of long oak ageing. Dom Pérignon have produced a great and classy rosé from a difficult year.

“Deeply fruity, beautifully spicy, and soothingly evolved nose screaming ripe Pinot plushness. Polished, pristinely fruity nose with a pretty gunpowdery touch. Strong, big palate coming with a notion of tannin. Blockbuster, winey, muscular style with the hallmark 2003 fluffy mousse. Less complexity than usual, a deep, winey vintage. Superb for 2003 but falls short to the greatest Dom Pérignon Rosés.”

“An insanely awesome wine where Richard Geoffroy stretched the limits to the maximum. Can you really make such a burgundy scented Rosé champagne? Will not Rousseau and Ponsot become envious? The roundness and the velvety structure settles like the most wonderful Persian carpet on the palate. Buy and follow this historic wine which might constitute the eve of something new.”

“One of the positive surprises in this tasting, the 2003 Dom Pérignon Rosé is now finally beginning to put on a little weight, although it remains inward and very much tightly wound. It will be interesting to see how the Rosé develops. The 2003 Blanc has always been more impressive than the Rosé. This is the first time I have seen anything that suggests the gap between the two 2003 might narrow some day. Sweet exotic aromatics linger on a finish that remains marked by a slight element of astringency. Disgorged 2012.”

“Finely detailed in texture, with an expressive flavor profile of strawberry pâte de fruit, biscotti, ground anise and ginger, matched to vivid acidity and a rich, minerally character. Broad and creamy on the palate, featuring a long, echoing finish. Drink now through 2029.”

“The Dom Pérignon team continue to make a strong statement with their roses. And the 2003 vintage certainly helped them by providing relatively bumptious, full-on ingredients. This wine is a pale tomato red - much deeper than most other pink champagnes - with a distinctly orange tinge thanks to the wine's age. This wine, designed for drinking with food, is big and almost Grenache-like!!! The finish is dry but along the way there are some strawberry notes and a suggestion of long oak ageing. I keep thinking of Tondonia Rosado (another complex, long-aged pink, though from Rioja)! Not that persistent, this lip-smacking wine is a bit of a cheeky chappie. Almost more of a defiant statement that flies in the face of conventional rosé wisdom than a wine. Very full - definitely for the table rather than a refreshing aperitif style.”

“The 2003 Dom Pérignon Rosé is another wine that has come together quite nicely over the last few months. Given the exuberance and sheer vinosity of the 2000 and the 2002, along with the ripeness of the year, and the heft of the 2003 Blanc, I expected the 2003 Rosé to be a much bigger wine. Instead, it is surprisingly delicate and medium in body. Dried flowers, crushed raspberries and sweet herbs waft from the glass in a Rosé that is all about sensuality. With time in the glass, the richness of the fruit becomes more pronounced, while the tannin from the red grapes is also noticeable. I would prefer to cellar the 2000 and 2002, and drink the 2003 sooner rather than later.”
