Dom Perignon Rose
The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes ripened perfectly together throughout the harvesting season of 2003 to create the necessary balance. Chef de Cave, Richard Geoffrey felt was needed to classify it as a vintage year.
Produced by France's largest Champagne house, Moët et Chandon, Dom Pérignon limits itself to wines of the very best years, which have undergone long ageing. The Champagne is named after Dom Pérignon who came up with new techniques for cultivating vines and making wine.
Notes of black cherry, cocoa and some powerful floral scents present themselves on the nose prior to tasting. Packed full of the customary red berry and spice one would associate with Rosé, it's the richness and density of it all that really sets this apart as a worthy vintage.
Serve this Dom Perignon Rosé 2003 Champagne alongside some Carpaccio di Manzo, fresh rocket and parmesan shavings for the best results.
