Moncharm | Moet & Chandon Dom Perignon 2002
A classic full bodied vintage with extremely sharp and well defined flavors, the Dom Perignon 2002 is nothing short of a classic. The bouquet is intensely floral and perfumed, which is followed by an exquisite palate of passion fruit, apricot, peaches, cream, chamomile, crystallized honey and wood smoke, which makes it striking yet smooth and creamy. Approachable now but gaining maturity by 2025, this is one for the keeping according to Moncharm.
One of the finest and most well-known brands of champagne in the world, Dom Perignon is the flagship champagne of the Moët & Chandon house. Named after a Benedictine monk, who pioneered a few champagne making processes, the brand traces its origins to 1670, when the champagne’s namesake took the initiative to create the finest champagne. The first vintage was sold in 1936, after the naming rights were bought in 1930 by Moët & Chandon.
The Champagne region is best known for its sparkling white wine namesake, a beautifully complex drink with fresh and fruity characteristics. Characterized by chalk subsoil and cool temperatures which give the wine its distinct flavor and acidity, the most grown grapes here include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
