Winemaker's Notes

The wine's bouquet is lilting and luminous, with a wide spectrum dominated by an orange glow. This complexity becomes deeper and more somber in the finish, with hints of smoke and black cherry. The wine has an assertive presence and is remarkably tactile, with creamy fleshiness and caressing intensity. The feeling of fullness stretches out and sustains the sappy, vibrant, crystalline note.

Critical Acclaim

"Unfortunately there is only one new release from Dom Perignon on the market, but what a wine it is! The 2002 Brut Rose explodes from the glass with endless layers of huge, voluptuous fruit, A big, full-bodied wine, the 2002 is probably the most overly vinous, intense Rose ever made by long-time Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy. Layers of cool, insistent minerality balance the fruit beautifully on the crystalline, vivid finish. The 2002 will be nearly impossible to resist young, but take my word for it; the wine is extremely closed right now. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2032."

"This exquisite rose-colored wine has a nose of cherry and soft citrus; it is creamy textured and precise with flavors that are at once complex and rich yet delicate and pure; focused and elegant with subtlety and depth; graceful, balanced and astonishingly beautiful."

"What can I say about the 2002 Dom Pérignon Rosé from magnum? Not much, except readers lucky enough to find bottles should not hesitate to snap them up. From magnum, the 2002 Rosé is naturally quite tightly wound, but it will be spectacular in a few years, once it starts to open up a bit. Today, the exuberance of the wine from bottle is nowhere to be found, so opening a magnum is going to be a very costly experiment at this stage. I am reminded of a tasting I did a few years ago with friends where we opened the 1996 Rosé from bottle, magnum and double magnum side by side. The bottle was the best wine right out the gate, while the double magnum was totally impenetrable, but after 4-5 hours the big bottle was interplanetary. Patience, patience, patience. "

"Bright orange-pink. A heady, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes candied red berries, blood orange, rose oil and buttered toast, with vibrant mineral and Asian spice nuances adding complexity; smells like a high-class red Burgundy from one of the high-rent Chambolle neighborhoods. Sappy, penetrating raspberry and bitter cherry flavors gain sweetness with air, with notes of orange marmalade and succulent herbs adding complexity. Clings with superb intensity on the smoky, minerally, floral finish."

Learn About Champagne

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Learn About Rosé

Pink Bubbles Some Champagne and sparkling wine is pink. It's more rare, and more robust, and sometimes more expensive. But it's one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rose sparkler comes from the skins - which means that the wine must include at least one of the red grapes of the traditional method - Pinot Noir or Pinot...
