Dom Perignon, the famous grande cuvée champagne, has existed since 1959 in its version of dew. The 2002 is the 22nd in pink, the last being in 1995, 1996, 1998 2000 and 2002. Dom Pérignon Rosé is not only beautiful in its youth, but it ages to perfection. The 2004, which has just been launched, is the subject of a rare global craze. The entire allocation of Britain was sold in less than two hours.
Why so successful? This vintage is exceptional with a rhythm like you have been through a few rounds of rain to avoid water stress and perfect harvest: a year of dream, as we see little in the blanks. The maturity of pinot noir, the key to great rosé and often their Achilles heel was just right, neither too much nor too little. Greater than 1996, the 2002 Dom Perignon is near mythical 1990 with aromas of great depth, a mouth touched with delicacy and complexity, and a prodigious final class. A magical moment!
