“A truly epic Dom Pérignon” - 2002 Dom Pérignon

Posted by Ian McFadden

There's no doubt that the 2002 Dom Pérignon will go down in the books as one of the greats of the past three decades.

I fell hard for it immediately upon release and over the past handful of years, I've only grown fonder of it.

At just a little shy of its 20th birthday, the 2002 is starting to reveal just how profound and nuanced it is while still being incredibly youthful.

The 2002 vintage is one of the best vintages in decades. It is characterized by exquisitely ripe grapes of great concentration, bolstered by plenty of lively elegance.

Dom Pérignon simply killed it in this vintage. The 2002 combines layered complex richness with impeccable precision and class. From the moment people started tasting it, they have reached to Montrachet for a comparison. The analogy works to capture 2002's regal intensity along with its precision and tension.

There's something otherworldly about the 2002 Dom Pérignon. It will go down as one of the most iconic wines that we've seen from them in our time.

Few wines go through a metamorphosis in the cellar like Dom Pérignon does. It's mind-blowing. The 2002 promises to evolve into something beautiful and profound in the decades to come.
