Rich, layered and voluptuous in the glass, the 2002 shows off its flamboyant personality with flair. Butter, cooked apple and tropically-leaning fruits mesh together effortlessly. Interestingly, with time in the glass the 2002 gains in freshness and energy without losing its essential opulence. The elevated ripeness of the year gives the 2002 Dom Pérignon distinctly Puligny-Montrachet leaning inflections. Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy adds that August that year was hot and very dry. Rain towards the end of the month and into early September freshened the vines and accelerated the final phase of ripening. This is yet another fabulous showing from the 2002, which continues to cement its reputation as a truly epic Dom Pérignon.

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

A rich and smoky Champagne in a graceful package with a beautiful fine-grained texture to it and layers of flavor-biscuit candied lemon peel coffee liqueur chamomile pine crystallized honey and wood smoke. This is the haute couture of the Champagne world-all about elegance texture and attention to detail. Drink now through 2027. -AN

Smoky citrus and pear aromas are complicated by honeysuckle sweet butter and allspice. Bright and incisive on entry offering lively lemon curd and orange flavors that give way to a deeper musky mango quality in the mid-palate. Showing more depth than the '02 Dom Perignon right now which is comparatively shrill. The spicy finish features a subtle smoky quality and impressive persistence.

Straw colored with a persistent fine bead the bouquet is high-toned and focused showing restrained aromas of citrus a bit of wet stone and spearmint. It opens softly with delicate flavors of lemon blossom then explodes on the palate with great intensity. Soft minerals appear interwoven with flavors of apples young pears and citrus cream. Toasty or yeasty qualities are not found here. Never rich or over the top the flavors are focused and pristine while at the same time intense and concentrated as the wine glides along a path leading to a rich feathery finish. One gets the impression of coiled flavors that will be unfurled over time. A Champagne that leaves you with the desire for more.

Label

Possibly the world’s most recognized and iconic Champagne, Moet & Chandon Dom Perignon is always a vintage-dated wine comprised of the classic varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Elegant and graceful with excellent aging potential, it is produced only in those harvest years that the Chef de Cave declares to be of exceptional quality.

Dom. Pierre Perignon, revered as the spiritual “Father of Champagne”, was a 17th century Benedictine Monk and cellar master at Benedictine Abbey of Hautvillers. He had a singular mission: to create the best wine in the world. To that mission, he dedicated 47 years of his life to invent and perfect the techniques to create a wine whose reputation knows no equal. His life-long work acquired a reputation for excellence which spread rapidly throughout the region, including the favor of the Royal Court during the reign of King Louis XIV.

Today, Richard Geoffroy, Chef de Cave and Creator of Dom Perignon Vintages, perpetuates the spirit of Dom. Pierre Perignon. The wine is produced by Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the largest luxury brand group in the world.

Winery

Moet Chandon

Since 1743 when it was founded, Moet & Chandon has been passing down unequaled winemaking savoir-faire and an innovative and pioneering spirit from generation to generation. Founder Claude Moet was the first to embody these values when he made his Champagne the most sought-after in Europe. With his grandson, Jean Remy Moët, a pioneering and visionary mind, Moet & Chandon became a major international champagne brand. This saga quickly transformed the family House into a worldwide symbol of success.

The 1,190 hectares of rich limestone soil, 50% of which is classed as Grand Cru and 25% Premier Cru, make up the largest vineyard area in Champagne. Underground, the Moet & Chandon cellars are the most extensive in the region. Extending more than 28 kilometers, they form a subterranean labyrinth where the wine metamorphoses under optimum conditions of humidity and temperature.

Moet & Chandon is part of the luxury brands group LVMH, whose other prestigious wine holdings include Chateau d’Yquem, Cheval Blanc, Cloudy Bay, Krug, and Newton Vineyard, to name a few.
