Bold, voluptuous and racy in the glass, the 2002 is opulent but never heavy in any way. The wine just floats on the palate as it captivates all the senses with its extraordinary beauty. There is only one problem with the 2002. It is too young. Although stratospheric today, it is likely to only improve from here. In 2002, a quick flowering and balanced weather conditions resulted in a healthy crop. Once again, the Chardonnay was the last fruit to be brought in. Drinking window: 2014-2034.

Highly reticent but seriously complex aromas of limestone apple pear and white flowers perfectly complement the big rich powerful yet very tight full-bodied flavors that possess simply superb detail and cut. This is one muscular massively constituted wine of profound depth and concentration that possesses near perfect balance and a finish that simply doesn't stop. This will require at least a decade to come into its own and should live for another 20 years after that. In short this has that "wow" factor and may rival the other worldly 1996.

The bright light straw-colored 2002 Montrachet bursts from the glass with spices white pepper pears and flowers. Rich medium to full-bodied and lush its oily-textured character offers broad ample layers of tangy apples pulp-laden pears anise toasted nuts and ginger snaps. This wine has superb depth complexity and length. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018.

At once chewy and smooth honeyed and minerally. Best today on the dense soil-inflected aftertaste which demonstrates outstanding persistence. Not an easy wine today and in need of a good decade of bottle aging but this should be among the standouts of this vintage.
