In the mouth, this Champagne paints a picture of paradoxes: it’s radiant yet introspective, generous yet reserved.

Pure and crystalline on the palate, its fruit is enswathed in a seamless integration of acidity - like diamonds set against velvet. Cripps apple flirts with a hint of iodine and ends with a chalky echo, resonating with graceful longevity - proof of an awe-inspiring vision realized.

 

Singular brilliance for any cellar

Dom Ruinart’s 2002 edition is not simply amongst the greats; it's an unrivalled testament to what unyielding patience in combination with rigorous expertise can create. Striking that perfect balance between enduring complexity and kinetic vitality, this excellent vintage will continue to astound connoisseurs and investors alike for decades to come.
