2002 Gosset "Celebris" Vintage Extra Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2002 Gosset "Celebris" Vintage Extra Brut Champagne

96 points Vinous: "Magnificent in its complexity and pure breeding, the 2002 Extra Brut Celebris has it all. The Extra Brut style confers the signature Gosset drive, while extended time on the lees has given the wine just enough texture and body to fill out nicely. In the meantime, the aromas and flavors have mellowed into those that are typical of Champagne entering the first plateau of its maturity. The 2002 is vinous, fleshy and super-expressive, yet retains striking freshness throughout. Candied lemon peel, apricot jam, honey, mint, spices and sage form a compelling fa ...Read More »

2002 Lanson "Gold Label" Vintage Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Balanced and delicious, this is rich, full in the mouth, packed with both white and citrus fruits and with secondary flavors of almonds, toast and baked bread. It is poised generously between the fresh and mature ..." (12/2015) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid yellow. Intense aromas of Meyer lemon, pear skin, honeysuckle, toasty lees and iodine, with a bright mineral quality adding lift and focus. Rich yet lively and precise, offering an array of fresh citrus and orchard fruit flavors that fill out and deepen with air. Closes on a smoky note, with excellent clarity and length and bu ...Read More »

2002 Pol Roger "Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill" Brut Champagne

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* With its gold color and mature, toasty flavors, this is possibly the greatest Winston Churchill ever. It has weight and richness, with a dense, full and rich texture. It’s in perfect balance, bringing together maturity and crisper apple and green plum fruit flavors that are cut with lemon. A mineral edge gives a nervy character that will allow this magnificent wine to age further. (RV)" (3/2015) 97 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of dried apple, cream, mango and ginger follow through to a full, dense palate, but it’s very fine. The bead is so, so fine.

2002 Thienot "Cuvée Alain Thiénot" Brut Champagne

Precious few 2002's are available these days- grab one of these when you can! This classy vintage Champagne is composed of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. Like all of the Thiénot vintage wines, this bottling is entirely estate grown from the family's nearly seventy acres of vines. The Alain Thiénot has so much aroma that I thought it would be a giant Champagne from smelling the walnut bread and dark cherry fruit that was jumping from the glass. On the palate this is a very balanced wine with great clarity of flavor and a light bead. The long aging of ... Read More »

2002 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart" NFB Brut Champagne

98 points James Suckling: "A superfine nose with the freshness still very much leading the way. Lemon and fresh wild strawberries, almond milk and a hint of brulée toffee; really lively. The palate has a bright, crunchy and assertive burst of lemon flavor on entry with white cherries and smooth, sherbet-like texture that delivers weight with elegance. Great balance here. Impressive and youthful, super pure and full of power." (7/2015) 96 points Decanter: "A grand vin of sustained power and endless complexity. A mosaic of minerals. Ageless. (ME)" (7/2015) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* With its ripe fruits, rich textu ...Read More »

2002 Ruinart "Dom Ruinart" Brut Rosé Champagne

96 points Vinous: "A mysterious, beguiling beauty, the 2002 Dom Ruinart Rosé boasts fabulous intensity and pure resonance. Tangerine, exotic spices, mint, crushed rose petals and sweet red berries blossom in the glass. Still, my impression is that the 2002 is holding back much of its ultimate potential, as it remains tight and much less expressive than so many other wines of the year. When the 2002 finally emerges fully, it is going to be truly monumental. Disgorged September 2012. 96+ (AG)" (11/2014) 95 points James Suckling: "Big on the autolysis wow factor, this chardonnay-driven rosé is a very imp ...Read More »

2002 Nicolas Feuillatte "Palmes d'Or" Brut Champagne

93 points Wine Spectator: "Refined and focused, this sleek version offers ripe flavors of poached apple, ground anise, almond financier, cassis and candied lemon zest, carried by the fine, silky finish to a lightly smoky finish. Drink now through 2025." (11/2013) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(a 50/50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir; L34140): Bright gold. Smoky pear, nectarine and dried fig scents are lifted by lemon curd and white flowers. Toasty and broad on entry, then brighter and more tangy in the mid-palate, offering sweet citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of buttery brioche. Closes with b ...Read More »

2002 Thiénot "La Vigne aux Gamins" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A concentrated, dense wine, this is round and rich with fresh apple flavor, but also a hint of maturity—a touch of cookie and almonds on the finish. This is an impressive wine, full of flavor and great concentration." (12/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Hints of marzipan and gumdrop add richness to the flavors of patisserie apple, lemon curd, smoke and honeycomb in this firm, well-cut version. Offers a finely detailed bead and a lasting finish, with a hint of blanched almond. Drink now through 2025." (11/2013) K&L Notes: This rarity comes from a miniscule one-and-a-quarter acre plot of the Thie... Read More »

2002 Moet & Chandon "Cuvée Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne (1.5L)
Bid on this magnum of 2002 Moet & Chandon "Cuvée Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne (1.5L) (98VN, 96W&S, 95RP, 95WS). Vinous: "The 2002 Dom Pérignon speaks to opulence and intensity. Rich, layered and voluptuous in the glass, the 2002 shows off its flamboyant personality with flair. Butter, cooked apple and tropically-leaning fruits mesh together effortlessly. Interestingly, with time in the glass the 2002 gains in freshness and energy without losing its essential opulence. The elevated ripeness of the year gives the 2002 Dom Pérignon distinctly Puligny-Montrachet leaning inflections. Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy adds that August that year was hot and very dry. Rain towards the end of the month and into early September freshened the vines and accelerated the final phase of ripening. This is yet another fabulous showing from the 2002, which continues to cement its reputation as a truly epic Dom Pérignon. (AG)" (10/2015)

2002 Krug "Clos du Mesnil" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

96 points Vinous: "The 2002 Clos du Mesnil is brilliant right out of the gate. Vibrant, focused and crystalline, the 2002 hits all the right notes. Lemon peel, grapefruit, slate and white flowers give the 2002 its high-toned personality. The ripeness of the vintage has softened some of the typically angular young Clos du Mesnil contours. Best of all the 2002 is a rare Clos du Mesnil that drinks well right out of the gate, even if it will surely be more complex with more time in bottle. The 2002 has been absolutely stellar on both occasions I have tasted it so far. The 2002 ...Read More »

2002 Jacques Selosse Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut Champagne
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Jacques Selosse Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut Champagne (98JS, 97VN, 96RP, 94ST). James Suckling: "An assemblage of two parcels in Avize, this was disgorged in January 2014 and delivers an incredibly fragrant style with plenty of energy. Aromas of fine lemon and yellow grapefruit citrus, dark grilled nuts, roasted coffee, grilled nuts and sweet spices. The palate is super intense with deep concentration, richness and length; the minerally, almost saline flavors climb through pristine lemon fruit flavors to freshly roasted hazelnuts, building deeper orange and cumquat towards the finish. It sits in very deep, and acidity has the final word, delivering a super pure and beautifully resolved impression. Drink now or hold for up to five years - it will build deeper, darker and more toasty, savory character." (07/2015)
