Dom Pérignon 2003 debuts via satellite

The French champagne Moët & Chandon on Thursday released its Dom Pérignon’s 2003 vintage in a ceremony linking events in New York, London, Paris, Hong Kong and Tokyo.

Via satellite, chef de cave Richard Geoffroy unveiled the wine in a hologram.

"It was a risk, which may be rewarded now," he said of the 2003 vintage "It's at the heart of the house's values -- we're committed to vintage Champagne. My wish is for Dom Pérignon 2003 to remain one of the greatest examples of the vintage in the history of Champagne."

Dom Pérignon 2003 will be available at abut $190.
