Dom Perignon Rose' 2002

Dom Perignon uses the méthode champenoise for their champagne production. Dom Perignon only makes vintage champagne, therefore there are no reserve Dom Perignon wines. Fermentation occurs exclusively in stainless steel tanks with cultured house yeast strains and full malolactic fermentation. The percentages of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vary from year to year with the typical blend for Vintage Dom Perignon Rose' averaging approximately 60% Pinot Noir (a portion of which is still wine) and 40% Chardonnay. No Pinot Meunier is used in the blend. 2002 was an excellent year with a warm (but not too hot) summer and a dry sunny harvest yielding ripe concentrated fruit. Harvest began September 12 and concluded September 28.

Dom Perignon has access to the 17 grand cru villages in champagne. The main focus of the blend is typically from the 8 famous grand cru villages of Avize, Ay, Verzenay, Chouilly, Cramant, Bouzy, Le Mesnil and Mailly as well as the famous premier cru from Hautvillers where the Abbey of Dom Perignon is located.
