Description & Technical Information
-
Laurent-Perrier choose to make vintages very rarely, only selecting the very best years. This makes their Brut Millésimé a rare and outstanding champagne that clearly expresses the specific character of each vintage in the Laurent-Perrier style. It is bottled and aged in Laurent-Perrier's cellars for almost eight years before being disgorged prior to release.

Weather: The 2002 vintage shaped up magnificently over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. This helped create a harvest that was marked by great homogeneity and superb balance. An extremely serene and generous year, 2002 is generally considered one of the best harvests in the last two decades.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | Chardonnay: Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger | Pinot Noir: Ambonnay, Aÿ, Bouzy, Mailly, Verzy
Grape Varieties: 50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir
Ageing: 7 years on the lees
Dosage: 8 g/l
Drink: Now to 2024

Tasting Note: The initial aroma is marked by an attractive fruity character which then evolves to display notes of ripe fruits and honey. As its character is gradually revealed, there is a sense of complexity, depth of flavour and a still youthful freshness, typical of the 2002 vintage. The long finish is marked by persistent notes of yellow stone fruits. Now with a few more years age since release it is starting to show some lovely brûlée and more complex nutty characters. From such a top notch vintage there is no rush to drink this champagne, it will continue to improve for many more years.

Laurent-Perrier Vintage 2002 does not have an individual branded gift box and will be delivered in a silver gift box.
