2002 Pol Roger "Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill" Brut Champagne

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. The texture is like silk. Truly superb. I love the contrast between richness and freshness. It builds slowly on the palate and finishes so long and rich. This was 10 years on the lees. Mostly Pinot Noir." (10/2014)95 points Wine Spectator: "There's a sense of quiet elegance and grace to this harmonious Champagne. Refined and lacy in texture, with finely wrought acidity lending focus and length to the spice- and graphite-laced flavors of ripe a ...Read More »

2002 Piper-Heidsieck "Cuvée Rare" Brut Champagne

97 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles* A powerhouse, with verve to the finely cut, racy acidity, showing a sense of finesse and seamless integration of the firm frame. The silky texture carries layer upon layer of toasted brioche, currant and pear pâte de fruit flavors, with notes of grated ginger and coconut, cappuccino foam and spun honey. Mineral accents of smoke, ground spice and fleur de sel build on the long, echoing finish. Drink now through 2032." (11/2013)95 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a blend from 17 crus in the Montagne de Reims, 70 percent chardonnay, 30 percent pinot noir. It is, by far, ...Read More »

2002 Thienot "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 Ayala "Perle d'Ayala" Brut Champagne

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold. A heady, complex bouquet displays an array of citrus and pit fruit scents, along with hints of pungent flowers and smoky minerals. Dry, focused and impressively concentrated, offering intense Meyer lemon, nectarine and floral flavors that put on weight with air. Closes on an emphatic mineral note, with excellent clarity and length." (12/2013)93 points Wine Spectator: "Supple and creamy, evoking vanilla, coffee, apricot and mineral aromas and flavors. There's an appealing combination of finesse and power against a tightly knit fabric and a complex flavor profile. Fine ...Read More »

2002 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne
Bid on this bottle of 2002 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne (100W&S, 99JS, 98WE, 96CG, 96RP, 92WS, 91ST). Wine & Spirits: "If a wine could ever make you want to pull the top down on your '68 Ferrari convertible, rip off the rearview mirror and take off, this is it. It has a different kind of energy than the '02 Cristal Rosé, which is more ethereal, like strawberries at the right hand of some ancient Gallic god. This is more insolent, brash, earth bound. All the scents and flavors seem to emanate from limestone, as does the acidity, which hits at the front of the mouth and powers through the wine with the kind of solar energy that lifts mist off the white chalk on a cool morning in Cramant. The wine goes on for miles. It's already irresistable, and will only improve with ten, 20, 30 and 40 years of age."

2002 Dom Pérignon Brut Rosé Champagne
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Dom Pérignon Brut Rosé Champagne (98RP, 95ST, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Unfortunately there is only one new release from Dom Perignon on the market, but what a wine it is! The 2002 Brut Rose explodes from the glass with endless layers of huge, voluptuous fruit, A big, full-bodied wine, the 2002 is probably the most overly vinous, intense Rose ever made by long-time Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy. Layers of cool, insistent minerality balance the fruit beautifully on the crystalline, vivid finish. The 2002 will be nearly impossible to resist young, but take my word for it; the wine is extremely closed right now. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2032." (11/2012)

2002 Ruinart "Dom Ruinart" Brut Rosé Champagne

95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2002 Dom Ruinart Rosé bursts across the palate with superb intensity and plenty of 2002 vintage opulence. Pomegranate, blood orange, red cherry, spice and white pepper are all very much alive in the glass. A rich, intense wine, the 2002 possesses terrific persistence and fabulous overall balance. The aromatics are just starting to show hints of development, but the 2002 has the pure density to drink well for many, many years. The vivid, crystalline finish is a thing of beauty. The 2002 is 80% Chardonnay (the Dom Ruinart base) with the addition of 20% ...Read More »

2002 Bollinger "La Côte aux Enfant" Still Champagne
Bid on this bottle of 2002 Bollinger "La Côte aux Enfant" Still Champagne (94RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still young, the 2002 offers up an attractive melange of red berries, flowers, spices and licorice, all framed by clean mineral notes. Some of the baby fat has begun to melt away, leaving a delicate, subtle wine of notable finesse. (AG-In the Cellar)" (11/2010)

2002 Bollinger R.D. Extra Brut Champagne

There are reportedly just a few thousand bottles of Bollinger's R.D. 2002, though actual numbers from the house are unavailable. The R.D. stands for "recently disgorged" and it was Madame Bollinger's answer to the call for a new prestige cuvee in the 1960s. "Bollinger's chef de cave, Gilles Descotes, told Decanter.com it was 'quite an easy decision' to make an RD from the 2002 vintage, which he described as a great year." From the winery: "Aromas of stewed ripe fruit, particularly quince, but also a discreet note of honey. These are followed by roasted n... Read More »

2002 Launois "Special Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L)
Bid on this 3-magnum lot of 2002 Launois "Special Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5L). Powerful Blanc de Blancs that gets its richness from old vines and a delayed harvest. It might seem strange that the top bottling is offered younger than the regular vintage, but Mr. Bernard Launois is adamant that extensive sur-lie ageing is reductive and shortens the ultimate life span of the wine. He goes against almost every other producer in Champagne with this iconoclastic opinion, but for anyone who has tasted perfectly stored, great Champagne that has aged on cork, we know it can work! Made from two plots of 65-year-old vines, one in the Grand Cru of Oger called the Chenys and one in Mesnil called the Derriere Maison, this is one of the ultimate expressions of Chardonnay that we have to offer.
