Tasting Notes

WS96

Finely detailed in texture, with an expressive flavor profile of strawberry pâte de fruit, biscotti, ground anise and ginger, matched to vivid acidity and a rich, minerally character. Broad and creamy on the palate, featuring a long, echoing finish. Drink now through 2029.

WA94

What’s more, the price-quality rapport here is excellent by any Champagne standards, and puts that of many a prestige cuvee to shame. Moet’s 2003 Brut Rose Dom Perignon exhibits both richness and robustness reflecting its torrid vintage, yet manages to stint neither on primary juiciness nor transparency to nuance; nor does it come off as at all heavy. Lightly cooked ripe strawberry and fig infused with rose hip, licorice, Ceylon tea, heliotrope and leather inform a delightfully forward nose and lush, effusively fruity palate. A tart and seedy edge to the strawberry serves for invigoration; and lobster shell reduction serves for mouthwatering salinity and somehow downright sweet animal savor. There is a hint of tannin, but it is fine-grained and suggestive of structural support. A long, seductively rich finish manages to harbor not just the immediately aforementioned virtues, but also a sense of transparency to floral and tea-like nuances and to virtually shimmering stoniness. This alluring and distinctive beauty should be worth following for at least the next half dozen years.

The Winery

Dom Pérignon

"If Dom Pérignon is the Porsche 911 Carrera of the wine world, then DP Rosé is the 911 Turbo"
-Jay McInerney, The Wall Street Journal

Dom Perignon, a Benedictine monk, was an innovative cellar master and winemaker in the seventeenth-century, whose unique techniques advanced the production and quality of Champagne. His obsession with consistency, precision and discipline helped him master the stages of production.

Perignon and his colleagues laid out essential foundations for the ‘champenoise’ method of critical varietals to create a second fermentation in the bottle that adds the distinct 'bubbliness' to Champagne. Now a brand of Champagne house Moët & Chandon, Dom Perignon continues to make vintage-only wines priding themselves by releasing Champagne in only optimal years.
