This innovative collaboration of artist/sculptor Jeff Koons and Dom Perignon is a Limited Edition feature which combines creativity, flair, and tradition.
The Balloon Venus for Dom Perignon is an object created by Jeff Koons for Dom Perignon and when opened, unveils a bottle of Dom Perignon Rose Champagne 2003.
The Dom Perignon Rose Champagne 2003 presents on the palate as concentrated and extremely well defined. The full, rich structure of silkiness and spice segues into a gradual finish with notes of mineral, iodine and salt.

“The whole is greater than the sum of the parts in this harmonious version, with flavors of currant pâte de fruit, dried apricot, pastry and pickled ginger."
"The 2003 Dom Perignon Rose is another wine that has come together quite nicely over the last few months. Given the exuberance and sheer vinosity of the 2000 and the 2002, along with the ripeness of the year, and the heft of the 2003 Blanc, I expected the 2003 Rose to be a much bigger wine. Instead, it is surprisingly delicate and medium in body. Dried flowers, crushed raspberries and sweet herbs waft from the glass in a Ros? that is all about sensuality. With time in the glass, the richness of the fruit becomes more pronounced, while the tannin from the red grapes is also noticeable. I would prefer to cellar the 2000 and 2002, and drink the 2003 sooner rather than later. "
