LeDomduVin: Friday night quartet
Recently, I opened, tasted, and served a few bottles of 3 of these beautiful ladies, it was a real treat.
What an amazing champagne! DP P2 is usually always very pleasing, yet, this vintage 2002 was truly amazing: fresh, enticing, and delightfully aromatic on the nose (fresh almond, citrus, white flowers, mineral, slightly toasted), then, rich and, complex, and layered, multidimensional yet focus and precise on the palate, long and persistent, beautifully balanced and harmonious, great acidity, lively and generous from beginning to end. Refreshing, graceful, and powerful in a very refined and elegant way. Loved it.
Lovely juicy wine, full of "Griottes", the name of the wild cherry in France. Vibrant, yet somewhat unsettled, at first, offering juicy, sour, yet ripped red cherry aromas and puckering sharp acidity, with a slightly pearling, tingling sensation on the tongue. Fresh and zesty at the opening, yet nicely developing and taming down after about 45 minutes of opening in the bottle, offering a more harmonious, balanced, and focused palate, light to medium-bodied, full of bright, juicy red cherry fruits and minerals, lingering in the finish. Youthful and refreshing, very enjoyable now, while a few more years in the cellar will make it even better.
Majestuous, noble wine, showing a lot of stature, character, and maturity. Ripe dark and red fruits mingling with gentle oaky, sandalwood nuances, floral, mineral, and earthy notes. Gorgeous, ripe, complex, generous, opulent, ample, soft, and silky, beautifully coating the whole palate while expanding gracefully and seamlessly, like a confident monarch, to a long-lasting finish. Rich and layered, concentrated without being heavy and perfectly balanced between the ripeness of the fruit, the acidity, and the present yet integrated tannins, adding respectively substance, texture, and structure.
As I prefer to write a full post about it, please check my next post for the details and descriptions.
