2002 dom perignon, rose
Why We're Buying
Dom Pérignon Rosé is a vintage Champagne, meaning that Moët & Chandon only makes it in strong years. The commitment to quality ensures immaculate final products that offer a seamless blend of pinot noir and chardonnay. This sparkling wine, which retails around $400 per bottle, is a must-have part of the Dom Pérignon portfolio.
This exquisite rose-colored wine has a nose of cherry and soft citrus; it is creamy textured and precise with flavors that are at once complex and rich yet delicate and pure; focused and elegant with subtlety and depth; graceful, balanced and astonishingly beautiful.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Unfortunately there is only one new release from Dom Perignon on the market, but what a wine it is! The 2002 Brut Rose explodes from the glass with endless layers of huge, voluptuous fruit, A big, full-bodied wine, the 2002 is probably the most overly vinous, intense Rose ever made by long-time Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy. Layers of cool, insistent minerality balance the fruit beautifully on the crystalline, vivid finish. The 2002 will be nearly impossible to resist young, but take my word for it; the wine is extremely closed right now. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2032.
