Product Description

Dry Sparkling. This glorious, mature wine has a wonderfully aromatic, ripe, pulpy, personality and with a beautiful interplay of acidity and stone fruit sweetness across the palate as well as fabulously complex, seductive and mature aromas and flavours. Like 2008, 2002 was a sunny, late harvest where the cool nights helped to retain acidity and balance the ripe fruit that came thanks to the sunny weather during the days. This wine has had no sugar addition but rather was dosed with the 2002 Moelleux Premiere Trie (itself a brilliant wine). It had four years on lees and was disgorged in 2007. You may think this is expensive? It isn’t. It’s an exceptional, complex and mature sparkling wine that puts many a Champagne to shame.

"In the glass the wine shows a pale and shimmering hue, and a very fine but energetic pétillance as we should expect. The aromatics suggest a very fine blending of minerality but there is also ripe orchard fruit here, coming through in a very confident style that reminds me a little of the 2009. The difference between these two vintages comes through more clearly on the palate though, where this latter vintage shows some more confident mineral streaks set against less exuberant fruit and a fine, energetic acidity and the joy of the prickling pétillance. This is just delicious, and will appeal to classicists looking for balance and acid-driven energy as well as those who need a little fruit and texture. It has length too. A really impressive result here."
