Notes
The 2002 Dom Pérignon P2 is wonderfully open in its aromatics, but a bit less giving on the palate, especially next to the regular release. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint and white pepper open up first, followed by hints of apricot, honey, chamomile and light tropical notes. Interestingly, the P2 is quite a bit less tropical than the original release. Chef de Caves Vincent Chaperon told me he thinks the original release shows more of a buttery character because of the combination of the ripeness of the vintage and the natural evolution of the wine post-disgorgement under crown seal, as opposed to the P2 which stayed much longer on its lees. It is hard to know if that is an exact explanation, but the reality is that the two 2002s are quite far apart stylistically.

Moët et Chandon

Moët et Chandon

Moët et Chandon’s, long history dates back to 1743 when a wine trader by the name of Claude Moët began selling Champagne; first to France, and later across Europe. As the company’s fortunes increased, so vineyard acquisitions were made. In 1792 these included the vineyards of the Abbey de Hautvillers, where a certain Benedictine Monk had spent a number of years improving Champagne winemaking techniques. It wasn’t until 1842 that Moet marketed its first vintage, taking things one step further in 1921 with the first release under the ultra-prestige Dom Perignon label. A fitting tribute, albeit 150 odd years late, to the monk who had dedicated so many years to the understanding of Champagne excellence. The quality of Champagne released under the Dom Perignon label has seldom been in doubt, only produced as a vintage cuvee and only in vintages deemed high enough quality. The 2004 vintage marks the 40th release since 1921. In 1959 a vintage Rose was added to the range, and more recently the house has begun releasing the spellbinding late disgorged Oenotheque wines.
