Dom Perignon Vintage 2003

The 2003 vintage was also exceptional for the Dom Perignon champagne brand. A very cold and dry winter was followed by frost and hail to end the vintage with an extremely hot summer. Accordingly, the Dom Perignon 2003 is different in structure and taste from the otherwise relatively homogeneous Dom Perignon vintages. It is filled with fruit chords and floral nuances and is dense enough to allow maturity for many more years. The Dom Perignon 2003 is around 130 EUR or 180 USD, depending on where you can buy it.

Grape variety and assemblage of Dom Perignon 2003

The April frost destroyed a large part of the Chardonnay harvest in 2003. Accordingly, Dom Perignon had to deviate from its traditional assemblage of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. The Dom Perignon 2003 was made from a blend of 68% Chardonnay and 38% Pinot Noir. This makes the 2003 vintage the first and only Dom Perignon vintage that has such an extreme assemblage.

Tasting notes of Dom Perignon 2003

The Dom Perignon 2003 is characterized by its fullness and opulence, has a lot of substance, but lacks the complexity that you are normally used to from Dom Perignon.

Color: The perlage is extremely fine and the color is a wonderful golden yellow.

Nose: In the beginning you discover aromas of fresh almonds and hay. After a few seconds in the glass, flavors of candied lemons and dried fruit unfold. You can also sense smoky and toasted aromas.

Taste: Dom Perignon 2003 has a vibrant fruity taste, favorably decorated with a floral arrangement. It has a lot of substance and creaminess. At the same time, it is incredibly fresh.

Food pairing

Ideal as an aperitif, but can also accompany an entire menu without any problems.
