    June 18, 2017 - Dom p 2003 is a big broad-shouldered wine. It doesn't seduce you as the 2000 with it's funky and fruity nose but this wine has a lot more "fuck you and your family" attitude. Geoffroy has added a lot more Pinot noir to the blend than usual which expresses itself very well in volumptousness.

    This bad boy of a big bold, powerful champagne needs a lot time in the cellar to lose some of that excessive fat. I'll expect this vintage to become a legendary wine with similar character as 88 krug grande cuvee and 85 dom P. It sure will divide the tasters because of it's "I'm here, I'm wonky and filled with all the good and illegal stuff from the medicin cabinet". This Dom P 2003 is an usual champagne with loads of exotic fruit, citrus, smoke and iodine with a firm acidity to give it a nice structure.

    This is a wine for those who likes a slap in the face during sex - and possess the patience and understanding of this wildness, which you know will reward you with softness and kindness in it's older days! This sure could be a legendary wine when it's been forgotten in the cellar for 20-30 years.

    June 1, 2017 - Certamente un DP atipico.
    C'è un mare di differenza con il '96 assaggiato qualche giorno fa, probabilmente sono due prodotti agli antipodi della galassia DP.
    Naso che si apre dopo qualche minuto sulle tipiche note di "famiglia", ma un pochino più verdi del solito. Ricorda come un caffè al ginseng.
    Vino intenso, con scarsa acidità ma tanta materia. Bolla cremosa.
    Certamente da pasteggiarci sopra ... da rivedere tra qualche anno, ma non mi aspetto sorprese eclatanti.
    Sarò felice di essere smentito ;)

    April 29, 2017 - Drinking better and better, though I don't agree with the current CT suggested window of 2019-2040. No reason not to drink this right now. It's rich and creamy, beat decanted and served warmer than straight from the fridge. Great length. It's not 02 or 96 but this is a great, individual champagne.

    April 17, 2017 - Gyllengul färg, pigg mousse

    Röda äpplen, marsipan, mandelmassa, efterhand mer krut och knallpulverpistol

    Medium+ syra, grym längd, bränt smör, rund och fyllig. Väldigt tillgänglig för att vara så ung

    Möjligen lite klen syra men kanske inte så förvånande med tanke på årgången
