Dom Perignon Vintage 2002 Tribute to Andy Warhol Blue
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. Ripe 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 it the somewhat burned, dehydrated fruit that came in that year. This bottle was disgorged in July, 2009. To be released summer 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2032
The packs offer colors including (bold red, yellow, blue and purple) and are ideal for serious collectors. The precision of the wine itself juxtaposed with a sexy kind of edge, a bit of a playful spirit. Each new release is a clear testament to the house's tireless pursuit of perfection.
