Dom Pérignon, Rosé 2002

Intense, star-bright pink coral colour, heralding the richness of the wine. Evolved scents of great Pinot, mushrooms, truffles - signs that the maturing journey continues...

Wolf Blass, Black Label

A wet winter and cool, long growing season plus the introduction of screwcap and Malbec (7%) to this year’s Shiraz-dominated blend (53%) produced this bright, juicy wine with an edge…

Giramonte, Frescobaldi

Giramonte, Frescobaldi 2002 Tuscany, Italy For many producers, 2002 was a difficult vintage in Tuscany especially for the late-ripening Sangiovese. However, for those who picked before the rains, it has…

Salon Le Mesnil Cuvée S Blanc de Blancs 2002

Salon, Le Mesnil, Cuvée S Blanc de Blancs 2002 An inherent contradiction here embodies the ripeness and the stamina of 2002. This is one of the most coiled Salons: clinging…

Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs

Taittinger, Comtes de Champagne, Reims 2002 Though very dumb when tasted soon after disgorgement, just three months later you could already taste the grandeur and concentration. There were just 35,000 bottles…

Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill 2000

Pol Roger, Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, Epernay 2002 More about structural fascination than aromatic pleasure. With its high acidity and simultaneously rich and impressive depth, this is reminiscent of the…

dom perignon 2002

Dom Pérignon, Epernay 2002 Wonderfully caressing and typical. The silkiness and balance impress most, along with a fluffy, creamy tone and stylish nuttiness. A great Dom Pérignon that charms from…

J Selosse

J Selosse, Avize 2002 Wonderfully open and rounded, with an exoticism and beauty typical of Selosse, while also being very true to the character of the vintage. Price: £432(ib)-£480 Chelsea…

Louis Roederer, Blanc de Blancs, Reims 2002

Louis Roederer, Blanc de Blancs, Reims 2002 Much more straightforwardly seductive than the standard vintage Louis Roederer from this vintage (see p48). It has a sublime aroma of white lilies,…

Ruinart, Dom Ruinart

Ruinart, Dom Ruinart, Reims 2002 In 2002, it was almost impossible not to make good wine, and Dom Ruinart was a blessed creation, 72% of fruit coming from Avize and Chouilly…

Points 94
Cristal Champagne

Louis Roederer, Cristal, Champagne 2002 My expectations were not entirely fulfilled on first tasting. Aristocratic and sublime, of course, but not as full-bodied as regular vintage wine. Retasting it recently, it was wonderfully honeyed and elegant,…
