2003 Moët & Chandon Champagne Cuvée Dom Pérignon Rosé

Champagne Blend more

2/4/2016 - KenK Likes this wine: 95 points

In great place, everything you could want from a Rose Champagne. Pretty floral aromas of cherry blossom. Rich delicate broad fruit flavors leaning toward red berries. Long and dense with good precision. Plain yummy. Surprisingly well balanced and no bitter or overly sharp edges. Better than expected!

Clean, rich and precise aromas of lemon citrus and floral notes. Quite bright and racy with a lean tense edge that is quite beguiling. Deep penetrating flavor profile of lemon tea with biscuit notes. Almost bristly today in texture not unlike the Salon 2002. The 39% Chardonnay seems to dominate upfront, while the Pinot Noir 40% and Pinot Meunier 21% appear to add the depth and concentration in the back half. The length of the finish is truly outstanding. This once seems built to really age.

Bristol with Krug. Primary aromas of dark sweet black-red fruits. Not very showy today and seemingly closing down. Dark dusty quality with nice fruit purity and impressive texture. A sleek mineral driven wine today with nice balance, although on the simpler side due to the primary nature. Hard to really assess the long term.

As expected, modern style with lots of extraction and perhaps just over the top. Still retains some sense of place with a broad earthy spices. Dense and a bit warm with wonderful full ripe black berry flavors and a hint of forest floor. A big boy wine, not for wimps. Nothing subtle here, but quite tasty.

From Magnum for Claudia magnum dinner: Aromas of dark earth, graphite, animal, underbrush, and ripe blackberries. On the palate, nice dark meaty flavors and wonderful depth. Awesome dark berry fruits dominate, but lots of wild spices and layers of flavors. So much to contemplate here. Wonderful interplay of forest floor wet soil character with ripe sweet fruits. Massive, yet well balanced. Was decanted for 4 hours and needed every minute. Paired amazingly well with the duck and blackberry sauce dish. Blew the 1978 Beaucastel off the table and that was a nice wine, although showing age.

From Magnum opened for Del Frisco's BYOM dinner. Classic white Burg that was fresh and dense and full of pretty white rocky minerals. So elegant and precise with lots of weight. Nice clean and refreshing, very long life ahead. This is what white Burg should be. No sign of any age at nearly 10 years of life. I need more of this wine badly, especially in magnums, wish me luck.

From Magnum for Del Frisco's 2nd Annual BYOM dinner. PNP. In a great place showing youthful exuberance with pretty core of violet laced red fruits. Nice depth and purity of fruit with a lean dusty structure and good lift. Elegant finish, shows more minerality than spice. Very long life ahead as still fruit driven.

This is fabulous and very special. Reminds me of Harlan. Deep concentrated with real depth of flavors and quite polished. Worth the effort to seek out. Very sadly my last bottle. I need more!

A great bottle of wine. Sweet black cherry and raspberry aromas with a very pretty melting asphalt aroma. On the palate all these flavors follow through with lots of black spices and a bit of dark chocolate. Deep and creamy texture, yet has plenty of structure and support. A truly delicious bottle that is packed with dense flavors without going over the top. Crowd favorite tonight as this magnum evaporated before I could even get a third glass, lol.

Rich dark sweet blackberries and sage spice. Smooth and creamy dense texture with enough structure to keep it well balanced. This bottle was quite good, but just a bit more advanced then I would expect as fruit was just slightly muted.

Nice fresh crisp texture and flavors of pears and apples with subtle mineral finish. Big bristly bubbles at this stage keeps it quite refreshing and fun, but limits the elegance. Nice wine will give my last bottle more time.

Sublime. Sweet pure chocolate covered cherry aromas with wild berries. Lush concentrated silky textures. Very ripe pure red fruit driven fruit bomb with milk chocolate. A polarizing wine as all about sweet fruit. Underlying acidity and smooth tannins create balance, but this is a big momma not subtle, yet it is sublime. A guilty pleasure.

Stunning wine. Gorgeous ripe red sweet cherry aromas with touch of dried violets. Rich sexy red fruit driven with seamless quality from start to end. Good lift and ripe tannins with exotic spices and long finish. New world meets old world. I loved it!

I really loved the aromatics here of crushed gravel, green pepper and earthy dark red aromas. The palate while quite good was a bit leaner than aromas indicated. Because it was popped and poured from magnum, grabbed a second Poe about an hour later and really opened. This should have been decanted. My bad. Probably unrated this bottle in hindsight.

Wow, stunning bubbly and my Champagne of the night. Clean bright dense with a sleek elegant feel of rocky Quartz. Drinking more like a Blanc de Blanc with some similarity to Salon style. Long life ahead, but why hold longer? Fantastic stuff very regal.

I really enjoyed this wine, dense, smooth, and structured. Wonderful deep core of red like fruits with a slight nutty edge that added complexity to this well integrated wine. Very much alive and in a sea of Chamoagne tonight really stood out and impressed. Very much alive. Thanks David B!

Amazing aromas of dusty roses with flavors spiced apple fruits. Really good stuff. Big dense fruit forward that is well balanced by nice acid and minerslity. Comes across very Pinot noir driven. Tiny fine bubbles add to the elegance.

Still alive, but lacking freshness and intrigue of the regular bottling served along side this 1999 disgorgement. Drinkable, but not very interesting.
