Description & Technical Information
-
Although originally founded in 1812, the name Champagne Laurent-Perrier was not conceived until 1964. It was Bernard de Nonancourt who initiated Laurent-Perrier's rise to world fame. One of Champagne's most important figures in the 20th century, he officially took over in 1948 after a three-year apprenticeship at the Houses of Delamotte and Lanson. In his 62-year tenure, production grew from 80,000 bottles annually to over eight million. Under de Nonancourt, Laurent-Perrier were the first House to use stainless-steel vats and the first House to create both a zero dosage champagne (Ultra Brut) and a multi-vintage prestige cuvée (Grand Siècle). Sadly, de Nonancourt passed away in 2010 and Laurent-Perrier is now managed by his two daughters, Alexandra and Stéphanie alongside Cellar Master Michel Fauconnet and has become one of the region's largest producers, they are perhaps best known for Cuvée Rosé, the most recognised rosé champagne on the planet.

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 2030+

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 silver gift box.

Expert Reviews
17/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Deep gold and more evolved than some 2002s. Richly toasty on the nose with notes of toasted hazelnut. Rather richer on the palate than some of the more austere and backward 2002s. Lots of immediate charm.”
17/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir. RS 8 g/l.
Tasted blind. Deeper gold than most. Quite broad and even oaky – sort of Bollinger style. Quite evolved aromatically with a hint of cheesiness. Bone dry on the end. Seems as though it is just losing a bit of fruit in the middle. Falls off very slightly on the end, but compared with the others there is good energy and I ended up upgrading it from 16.5. Very slightly bitter finish.”
91/100
Wine & Spirits
“A fragrant, zesty and powerful wine, this has the concentration of the vintage with tart peach and lemon pith flavor. Acidity balances the roundness of the dosage, creating layers of flavor and pointing up the complex spice. This has the tension to serve with sashimi.”
91/100
Josh Raynolds
“Light yellow-gold. Candied citrus fruits, pear and chamomile on the smoke-accented nose. Fresh, assertive and penetrating, offering juicy orchard and citrus fruit flavors and a deeper pit fruit nuance. Finishes sappy and long, with strong mineral cut and lingering lees and mineral nuances. ”
94/100
Wine Enthusiast
“*Cellar Selection* This very structured wine is dry, in the Laurent-Perrier house style. Crunchy green apples are supported by richness and a complex texture. With nine years in the cellar, it has already gained some maturity, but needs aging.”
91/100
Wine Spectator
“A bright, mineral-driven Champagne that offers a creamy mousse and flavors of green pear, anise, spiced nut and candied lemon zest. A note of sweet smoke lingers on the moderate finish. Drink now through 2016.”
92 → 94/100
Essi Avellan MW
“Soft, mineral-laden, peach and white flower nose with toastiness emerging. Packed with exuberant fruit. Elegant, restrained, firm and for the time being very youthful palate. Give it time. ”
92/100
Stephen Tanzer
“Light, bright yellow. Fragrant, complex scents of Meyer lemon, pear, peach pit and toasty lees. Juicy and precise, with very good depth to its spice citrus and floral flavors. The deeper pear and peach notes come back on the finish, which lingers with serious smoky intensity. This Champagne's density and focus bode well for cellaring.”
87/100
Antonio Galloni
“The 2002 Brut Millesime shows good up-front richness in its dried apricots, dried pears, flowers and spices. This is a relatively supple, easygoing 2002 best suited to near-term drinking. This is lot # L43PX103290Q. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.
17/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Pale straw. Attractive lightly toasty nose and real zest and some age on this. Not desperately concentrated. Feather-like impact on the palate and impressive length.”
93/100
William Kelley
“The 2002 Brut Millésimé is drinking brilliantly, bursting with aromas of pear, yellow orchard fruit, citrus oil, peach, smoke and toasted bread. Medium to full-bodied, layered and complete, it's elegantly textural and broad-shouldered, with lovely depth and a sapid finish. Along with the 2008, this is my favorite vintage of the decade chez Laurent-Perrier, and it's drinking very well today.”
