We are one of the first to have received physically the Special Edition David Lynch 2003. I saw the bottles personally as they arrived in our cellar and it was simply amazing and breathtaking!
After the success of the last special edition made for the 2002 vintage created by Andy Warhol, Moët & Chandon is now out with this new special edition. The celebrity and the originality of Oscar winner David Lynch gave origin to this unique bottles for which you can see some photos attached. As you will see this bottles are an authentical masterpiece!
The vintage is also very interesting as 2003 was judged by Robert Parker as an “iconic Champagne” and by Peter Keller (wine expert for the NZZ) as a Champagne which “could write history and become a predecessor of the big DP of 1947, 1959 and 1976 ”. So beside the beautiful special edition the content is pure quality and amazing to drink!
Please take in consideration that this is a Special Edition very difficult to find and therefore quantities on this Champagne is very limited.
75.0 cl Champagne Dom Perignon Special Edition David Lynch - Moët & Chandon 2003 CHF 175.00 (CHF 189.00 VAT included)
Robert Parker 94+: Unfortunately there is only one new release from Dom Perignon this year. The 2003 is one of the most unusual Dom Perignons I have ever tasted, going back to 1952. Readers will remember that 2003 was a torrid vintage across northern Europe, especially during the critical month of August, when temperatures remained very hot for well over a month. The harvest was the earliest on record, until 2011, that is. I suppose its not that surprising Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy chose to make a 2003 Dom Perignon, given his penchant for risk-taking, an approach that has yielded so many memorable wines that stretch the perception of what big brand Champagne is and can be. The 2003 Dom Perignon is a big, broad shouldered wine. It does not have the seductiveness of the 2000, nor the power of the 2002. It is instead very much its own wine. In 2003 Geoffroy elected to use more Pinot Noir than is typically the case, and that comes through in the wine’s breath and volume. The 2003 is a big, powerful Champagne that will require quite a bit of time to shed some of its baby fat. The trademark textural finesse is there, though. I expect the 2003 to be a highly divisive Champagne because of its extreme personality, but then again, many of the world’s legendary wines were made from vintages considered freakish at the time. The 2003 is an atypically, rich, powerful, vinous Dom Perignon loaded with fruit, structure and personality. It is not for the timid, but rather it is a wine for those who can be patient. No one has a crystal ball, but personally I will not be surprised if in 20 years’ time the 2003 is considered an iconic Champagne. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2038.
