2002 is a staggeringly, breathtakingly sublime Dom. At once ultra-honed, chiselled, tense and linear and simultaneously expansive, powerful and fine-tuned, culminating in a cascade of minerality. Find the love of your dreams and propose to her (or him) with this bottle. Drink 2017 - 2032.

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. 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 the somewhat burned, dehydrated fruit that came in that year. This bottle was disgorged in July, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2032.
