Issue Issue 171

(LAG5EC3): Vivid gold. A heady bouquet displays scents of ripe orchard fruits, honeydew, candied citrus fruits and white flowers, along with powerful smoke and mineral nuances and a hint of vanilla. Lush, creamy and broad, displaying surprising vivacity to its intense pear, melon and orange flavors. The smoke and vanilla notes repeat on the finish, which shows superb power, focus and length. There's no hurry to drink this Champagne but it's awfully delicious right now.

Now with another year of bottle age, the 2002 Brut Dom Ruinart is even better than it was last year. A huge bouquet of smoke, roasted almonds, nutmeg and graphite melds into layers of huge, exotic, super-ripe fruit. The 2002 has more than enough pure density and richness to fill out its broad shoulders nicely. It remains a big, powerful wine endowed with tons of pure structure. I can't wait to see how the 2002 ages. It is without question one of the truly great wines ever made at this historic maison.

Shows beautiful, lacy texture, weaving persistent and mouthwatering acidity with flavors of patisserie pear, dried apricot, almond paste, pickled ginger, acacia blossom and clover honey. This is underscored by a rich note of smoky minerality that rings out on the finish.

My favorite Champagne to date, you could taste the battle of wanting to be older than its 2002 year. I expect greatness for this wine moving forward another 20 years.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
