The 2002 Brut Millesime shows good up-front richness in its dried apricots, dried pears, flowers and spices. This is a relatively supple, easygoing 2002 best suited to near-term drinking. This is lot # L43PX103290Q.
Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016

The 2002 Brut Millesime is drinking brilliantly, bursting with aromas of pear, yellow orchard fruit, citrus oil, peach, smoke and toasted bread. Medium to full-bodied, layered and complete, it’s elegantly textural and broad-shouldered, with lovely depth and a sapid finish. Along with the 2008, this is my favorite vintage of the decade chez Laurent-Perrier, and it’s drinking very well today.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2033
