2003 Dom Perignon Vintage Champagne 2003
This picture is an example only. All wines clearly show the actual vintage and the correct year.
This stunning Champagne scores 94+/100 Parker points and " The 2003 Dom Perignon is a big, broad shouldered wine. It does not have the seductiveness of the '00, nor the power of the '02. It is instead very much its own wine. In 2003 Geoffroy elected to use more Pinot Noir than is typically the case, and that comes through in the wines breath and volume. The 2003 is a big, powerful Champagne that will require quite a bit of time to shed some of its baby fat. The trademark textural finesse is there, though. I expect the 2003 to be a highly divisive Champagne because of its extreme personality, but then again, many of the worlds legendary wines were made from vintages considered freakish at the time. The 2003 is an atypically, rich, powerful, vinous Dom Perignon loaded with fruit, structure and personality. It is not for the timid, but rather it is a wine for those who can be patient. No one has a crystal ball, but personally I will not be surprised if in 20 years time the 2003 is considered an iconic Champagne." Drink now - 2038.
