Dom Perignon Champagne 2003

Sparkling Wine from France - Champagne
Review Date : 04-Dec-2012
The prestige cuvee of Moet & Chandon, 62% Pinot Noir and 38% Chardonnay, 6 g/L dosage. Bright, light straw colour with golden hues, and a persistent, moderately fine bead. The nose is softly concentrated with aromas of toast and nuts integrated with attractive fruit and bready autolysis, expressed with a stylish density. Dryish to taste, this is softly dense and a little broad on palate, the sweet fruit flavours showing richness, unfolding to reveal subtle layers of bread and nuts. The componentry is integrated and very harmonious, coming together well. Some fine phenolic textures are present as the lower acidity becomes apparent, and the wine is no longer fresh in primary expression, and the dosage more prominent on the finish. This is a rich, soft and broader Champagne, reflecting the hot, dry vintage. Its integration suggests earlier drinking. 18.0-/20 Nov 2012 RRP $326.00
