    July 30, 2017 - Denna flaska inte på prestigenivå dessvärre. Salt som en Muscadet och nästan kladdig mousse. Behållningen var hur funky den var. I skuggan av eleganta 2002 som provades parallellt.

    July 20, 2017 - Initially very saline and mineral on the nose, a big contrast to the quite generous, broad impressions on the palate where waxy fruit and toast dominates. Still fresh acidity though. Fine mousse and very good lenght, finishing with a perfume of lavender and roses. Not terribly complex. Still very young. Gradually, with time in the glass, it gets more nutty and richer on both nose and palate. A somewath odd wine, but much fun to try. I really do wonder where it's headed over time. Drank alongside the 2002 wich was clearly the better wine but also more mainstream and in a way less interesting.

    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 ;)
