2003 Dom Perignon Brut - 750ml
Vinous - 95 points
The 2003 Dom Pérignon is in a gorgeous place right now. To be sure, it is a powerful Champagne that reflects the personality of a year marked by frost, that took out 70% of the Chardonnay, and then record heat and drought over the summer. The 2003 is just starting to head into its first plateau of maturity. Brioche, baked apple tart, lemon confit and marzipan build into the rich, layered finish. (11/2021)

My March visit to the Abbé d’Hautvillers was my first opportunity to have a look at the 2003 Dom Pérignon, which caused quite a stir when it was announced that it had been produced in this sultry French summer. The wine has defied expectations since its initial release in 2011 and today is drinking very well indeed, wafting from the glass in a mix of ripe apple, yellow plum, salty minerality, rye bread and plenty of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and quite vibrant in personality, with a fine core, refined mousse and great backend mineral drive on the long and very well-balanced finish. A wine crafted by the intrepid cellar team at Dom Pérignon, the 2003 has turned out beautifully and fully delivers the complexity and pleasure one has come to expect from this iconic bottling.
