2002 Dom Perignon - Brut Champagne (1.5L)
Dom Perignon Description
Our commitment to vintages is absolute. Dom Perignon is reinvented with every vintage, daring to take risks. Using Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, we play with contrasts and complementary elements to create tension, giving birth to Dom Perignon's highly intriguing contrast.

The 2002 Dom Perignon is at first intensely floral, with perfumed jasmine that dominates the bouquet. With time in the glass the wine gains richness as the flavors turn decidedly riper and almost tropical. Ripe apricots, passion fruit and peaches emerge from this flashy, opulent Dom Perignon. The wine's volume makes it approachable today, but readers in search of more complexity will want to cellar this for at least a few years to allow for some of the baby fat to drop off. Geoffroy describes the vintage as very ripe and adds that some of the Chardonnay showed the ill-effects of the hot growing season in it the somewhat burned, dehydrated fruit that came in that year. This bottle was disgorged in July, 2009. To be released summer 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2032 —Antonio Galloni,
