2003 was a pretty sucky year, weather wise, for champagne growers with grapes having to be picked much earlier than usual. With many producers not even bothering to declare a vintage that year, Dom Perignon took a risk and decided to have a crack.

Maybe not as floral as usual. Big, sharp, intense flavours of grapefruit and a lot of minerality. A little lime and honey.

Could have a bit of potential. Not the best Dom that I've had, but perhaps one of the most interesting. And of course, still a quality wine from this maker.
