    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Grand Vintage 2002, the 69th from the Maison is mature, harmonious and precise. Seven years in the cellars have developed the mature, toasty flavours, both sweet and dry, with warm notes of grain and frangipane along with toasted almonds and malt, mocha and light tobacco.

    Notes of ripe fruits follow: pear, candied citrus, plum, nectarine and white peach. On the palate, the construction is precise and the substance is velvety. The first impression of creamy roundness progressively allows the linear, tight structure to appear. The flavours of fruit become fresher: mandarin orange and pink grapefruit.

    Critical Acclaim:

    In acknowledgement of the superior quality of 2002, Moët has released this wine well after the 2003. The decision is fully justified, for this is still young. It is impressive, intensely concentrated, mineral, showing tight grapefruit and apple flavors. Excellent aging potential.

    Powered by racy acidity, this shows well-structured elegance, partnering rich texture with flavors of quince paste, poached apple, white peach, graphite, almond and smoke. Offers fine focus and length, with a hint of citrus on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2022.

    Bright yellow. Smoky citrus and pear aromas are complicated by honeysuckle, sweet butter and allspice. Bright and incisive on entry, offering lively lemon curd and orange flavors that give way to a deeper, musky mango quality in the mid-palate. Showing more depth than the '02 Dom Perignon right now, which is comparatively shrill. The spicy finish features a subtle smoky quality and impressive persistence.
