General consensus among critics is that the 2002 vintage of Dom Perignon's Rose wines will benefit greatly from a few more years in the cellar. Those who can't wait could look towards the 2002 Dom P Blanc which is currently drinking really well, and those who can will have something incredible to look forward to!
Dom Perignon gets its name from the Benedictine Monk, who in 1668 became the cellar master at Benedictine abbey of Hautvillers, in Marne, Champagne. During his time at the abbey, the vineyards thrived, and he made it his ambition to create - in his own words "the best wine in the world". By adopting new techniques, he was a pioneer in wine making and is thought to be the first to blend different grape varieties to improve the quality of wine. Dom Perignon is now a hugely sought after, top quality champagne.
While technically not the first, so called 'prestige cuvee', Moet & Chandon's Dom Perignon is certainly the first to be widely available and created a trend followed by many others! Dom Perignon is created from the ripest grapes from the finest plots and, if kept well, those with enough patience can see it develop and improve over decades.
To make a Champagne so consistently fine as Dom Perignon is, in considerable volume is quite remarkable, a tribute to the skill and developement of the ultra famous Grande Marque Moet & Chandon. We at Nickolls & Perks have been fortunate enough to study the wines in depth, tasting examples back to the 1960's, I have never been disappointed. The wines are indestructable remaining fresh for decades. This is undeniably one of the world's finest wines.
