Tasting notes, The Wine Advocate, 94 points
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.

Dom Perignon Roses remain a rare commodity due to the small quantities available

Dom Perignon was the 17th century Benedictine monk who has gone down in history as the person who ?invented? Champagne. He was a remarkable viticulteur (grape grower) and wine maker and clearly ahead of his generation. He was the first to teach blending skills in the Champagne region and discovered the secret of the double fermentation process, the first fermentation taking place after the harvest and the second artificially induced in spring. The extraordinary quality of the wine he devised and produced in the secrecy and religious fervour of the Abbey makes him the spiritual father of Champagne and one of the greatest visionaries of modern wine making. He died in 1715 and was buried among his vines, leaving his name to history that is celebrated in millions of festive occasions throughout the world.
He sold the brand name to the Moet & Chandon House who use his name for their Cuvee Prestige range that was first released in 1937, and remains the jewel in the crown of their prestigious Champagne house. Dom Perignon is their best known champagne and undoubtedly their finest
