Dom Perignon Rose' 2003

Dom Perignon uses the méthode champenoise for their champagne production. Dom Perignon only makes vintage champagne, therefore there are no reserve Dom Perignon wines. Fermentation occurs exclusively in stainless steel tanks with cultured house yeast strains and full malolactic fermentation. No Pinot Meunier is used in the blend. The percentages of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vary from year to year with the typical blend for Vintage Dom Perignon Rose' averaging approximately 60% Pinot Noir (a portion of which is still wine) and 40% Chardonnay. 2003 was generally a rough year with few producers declaring. Late April frosts damaged the Chardonnay and problems were further compounded by scorching August heat. Dom Perignon's Chef de Caves, Richard Geoffroy saw this as a challenge and faced it head on using more Pinot Noir than is typical to make this big, full bodied champagne. The final dosage was under 4 grams/liter.

Dom Perignon has access to the 17 grand cru villages in champagne. The basis of the blend is typically from the 8 famous grand cru villages of Verzenay, Chouilly, Bouzy, Le Mesnil, Cramant, Avize, Ay and Mailly as well as the famous premier cru from Hautvillers where the Abbey of Dom Perignon is located and he is buried.
