Moet & Chandon Dom Perignon Brut Rose Champagne 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

96 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): 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. (Mar 2010)

  Moet & Chandon is one of the most well-known luxury champagne producers in the word. With over 2,500 acres of vineyards and an annual champagne production of 26,000,000 bottles, Moet & Chandon lives, breathes, and, of course, drinks champagne. The House of Moet was founded in 1743 by Claude Moet, but it wasn’t until his grandson, Jean-Remy Moet, took over that the company really took off and became an international luxury brand. Jean-Remy Moet strove to bring the pleasure of champagne to everyone he could, forming partnerships with both French and international clients on a regular basis. When Jean-Remy Moet sold the House of Moet to his son Victor Moet and his son-in-law Pierre-Gabriel Chandon in 1833, the ensuing partnership formed Moet & Chandon. Shortly after the new branding, in 1842, Moet & Chandon released its first vintage champagne, leading the way to even higher-quality champagne. In 1921, they produced their first prestige cuvée under the brand Dom Pérignon, named after a Benedictine monk who was an important pioneer for champagne. The first vintage released for sale was in 1936, and today it is managed by winemaker Richard Geoffroy. Read less

Bright yellow. 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 andrsquo;02 Dom Perignon right now, which is comparatively shrill. The spicy finish features a subtle smoky quality and impressive persistence.

Die Geschmackskomposition dieses Champagners wartet mit Nuancen von frischen Mandeln und Grapefruit auf, spielt zarte Noten von Cashewnüssen und Gewürzen ein - und endet in einem herrlichen, zartcremigen Finale von getoastetem Brioche.

Hellgelb mit goldenen Schimmern. Noten von Pfirsich, die schnell von Nuancen der Cashewnuss und getrockneten Kräutern abgelöst werden. Leicht getoastete Brioche ergänzen diesen Aromareichtum.

With a beautifully deep coral color and bold Pinot Noir flavors, this could easily substitute for red dinner wine. A generous rosé with a lingering finish.

Frisch, kristallin, zielstrebig, so zeigt sich die erste Nase in einem originellen, pflanzlich-aquatischen Ambiente mit einem Anflug von weissem Pfeffer und Gardenie. Sodann macht sich die Reife dieses Champagners bemerkbar, zunächst mit Sanftmut und Leichtigkeit, dann mit einem Hauch von Torf. Am Gaumen gibt die forsche Attacke den Auftakt zu einer Vollmundigkeit, die immer sinnlicher wird und sich wie eine Pflanze zu winden scheint. Anis-und Backingwer-Nuancen gleiten gewissermassen über die Haut der Früchte (Birne und Mango), die mehr durch taktile Präsenz als durch Fleischigkeit bestechen. Das Finale zieht sich in die Länge, bis es in eine diffuse, besänftigte, reife Schlussnote einmündet. Der undefinierbare Reiz dieses Champagners wirkt, ohne jemals seine Persönlichkeit zu beeinträchtigen.

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 ...

A well-defined version, with fine balance and texture. This offers a smoky, minerally undertow to flavors of poached apple and pastry, kumquat, ground ginger and anise, alongside a hint of crandegrave;me de cassis. Long and mouthwatering. Drink now through 2027.
