$319.00 per Bottle

"Like all Dom Rosés, made from 80% Chardonnay with up to 20% red wine added. In more than 25 years of tasting Dom pink, at this relatively adolescent stage of release the 2002 is probably the most complete vintage I have ever tasted. That shouldn’t surprise, for it was one of the greatest years since 1945, warm without excessive heat. Lovely translucent ruby with hints of gold; both scents and flavors display a perfect harmony of intensity and density without heaviness. The aromas are extraordinary: white pepper and exotic fruits (mango, even papaya), which are signs of a perfect expression of ripeness. Still coiled in the mouth, there is so much going on here to reveal manifold complexities over the next 15 years. Supreme elegance balances the intensity. Memorable. Perfect lowish dosage of around 5g/l." Michael Edwards, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 49

"Lovely ornate yeasty nose and a really rich, expressive and lengthy palate. Really benefits from the maturity. Delicious and noble." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
