    Winemaker's Notes:

    The first hints of fresh almond and harvest aromas immediately open up into preserved lemon and dried fruits, the whole rounded off by darker smoky and toasted qualities. The presence of the wine on the palate is immediately captivating. Paradoxically concentrated yet creamy, it is energetic and warm in the mouth, focusing on the fruit, then gradually taking on more profound bass notes. The whole holds its note perfectly, intensively, with just a subtle, elegant hint of underlying bitterness.

    Tribute to Any Warhol by Dom Perignon
    Inspired by Warhol's unconventional representation of icons, and the playful use of codes and colour in his work, Dom Perignon commissioned the Design Laboratory at Central Saint Martins School of Art & Design to reinterpret its timeless bottle. The result is a unique collection of three bottles, each with its distinct label in red, blue or yellow, paying homage to Warhol's iconic colour games.

    About Andy Warhol
    Andy Warhol was born Andrew Warhola August 6, 1928. From an early age, Warhol showed an interest in photography and drawing. After attending Carnegie Mellon University, Warhol moved to New York and worked as an illustrator for several magazines including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and The New Yorker. In 1952 the artist had his first solo exhibition and four years later participated in his first group show exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art.
    Appropriating images from popular culture, Warhol created many paintings that remain icons of 20th-century art including the Campbell's Soup Can, Marilyn and Elvis series. Warhol worked in a variety of mediums from painting to photography and in the eighties hosted his own talk-show on MTV.
    Andy Warhol died February 22, 1987, firmly established as one of the most important artists of the 20th century.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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 Wine Advocate

    Harmonious and huge, this is a bold vinous Champagne with the fresh pear flavor intensity of Puligny from a great vintage. Peter Liem commented that the reductive winemaking balanced the weight and ripeness this wine achieved in 2002. For all its size and power, it shows remarkable suppleness and elegance. This is a champagne with sophistication and discretion, one tha will gain from long aging.

    A rich and smoky Champagne in a graceful package, with a beautiful, fine-grained texture to it and layers of flavor—biscuit, candied lemon peel, coffee liqueur, chamomile, pine, crystallized honey and wood smoke. This is the haute couture of the Champagne world—all about elegance, texture and attention to detail. Drink now through 2027.

    Zinger (3/20/2011)
    Very nice. One of the best I've tried. Nice, crisp flavor that does down smooth. Not overbearingly acidic. A nice "clean" mouthfeel. I'd buy it again for special occasions. If it were a bit cheaper, I'd buy cases of it!
