Dom Perignon 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

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. Wine Advocate

Excellent finesse in this wine that is still fresh with lime and citrus, but it also hints at lovely hazelnut, nutmeg and coffee bean notes. A very long orange-peel-scented finish. A touch lighter than the rsquo;82. Drinkable now.

Dom Pegrave;rignon is all about finesse and delicacy mdash; the finesse of the fine, persistent effervescence that never intrudes but provides a sense of vibrancy; the delicacy to flavors so perfectly integrated into a lovely creaminess. A fresh, young vintage, you can enjoy the rsquo;88 right now, or safely rely on the balanace to hold the wine as it develops complexity with age.

Itrsquo;s expensive. Itrsquo;s prestigious. And itrsquo;s delicious. D.P. seems to make outstanding fizz every release. This shows wonderful richness with plenty of bread dough, apple and spice character yet retains a fabulous raciness in acidity.

With a tight flow of bubbles and toasty Golden Delicious aromas, itrsquo;s another high-quality sparkler from this consistent producer. The tart citrus flavors and crisp acidity are clean and fresh now, but will also age well.

Intense and toasty on the nose, picking up scents of green apple and lime. Seems very young and fresh mdash; capable of extended aging, but precocious for Dom, with enough fruit to make it pleasurable now. Supple and creamy in the mouth, this wine shows no sharp edges, yet boasts an extraordinarily long finish.

Chablis-like in its mineral scent, this latest release of DP is almost brassy in its youthful tension. While the paler chardonnay influence shows in the aromas, a firm mousse lifts a fraise de bois flavor over the palate, balancing delicacy with grip. This is a bigger wine that the rsquo;93, and will need some time to settle into its spice, to build from its youthful austerity. But even now itrsquo;s delicious, harmonious, with a long life ahead.

Complex and true to the essential nature of Champagne. Layers of toast and fruit in an aroma thatrsquo;s rich, yet edgy as gunflint. Very clean, with complexity based on a layered, pear-like character and toast. Exceptional balance and creamy length of flavor that fades to a whisper and lasts. Lovely, delicate style, effortless and elegant.
