"Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002 presents a vibrant, a deep coral with delicate coppery tones. Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002 offers a fine and persistent effervescence. The richness of the 2002 vintage boasts exceptional breadth and volume on the palate. It offers a fine fruity, floral and spicy aromatic range. Chardonnay emerges simultaneously as round, precise and subtle. The finish, attractively structured with restrained power, allows the Pinot Noir to shine. Longer aging in the cellars will rank it amongst the greatest Dom Ruinart Rosé vintages such as the 1996, 1990, 1988 or the legendary 1976." —winemaker
"A mysterious, beguiling beauty, the 2002 Dom Ruinart Rosé boasts fabulous intensity and pure resonance. Tangerine, exotic spices, mint, crushed rose petals and sweet red berries blossom in the glass. Still, my impression is that the 2002 is holding back much of its ultimate potential, as it remains tight and much less expressive than so many other wines of the year. When the 2002 finally emerges fully, it is going to be truly monumental. Disgorged September 2012. Drinking window: 2017 - 2032." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"Big on the autolysis wow factor, this chardonnay-driven rosé is a very impressive Champagne from the outset with a wealth of toasty autolysis, sweet spices and flinty lemon with some pink grapefruit too. The intensity is impressive, as is the complexity and freshness. The palate has smooth-honed shape and fine acidity with some assertive ripe phenolics making for superior structure and depth. Flavors of blood orange, peach and lemon drive deep and the finish is superb. Drink now or for up to five years." —JamesSuckling.com

"Light, bright orange-pink. Heady mineral- and yeast-accented aromas of dried red berries, blood orange, buttered toast and tea rose. Densely packed and expansive on the palate, offering intense raspberry, cherry compote and floral pastille flavors and a smoky overtone that gains strength with aeration. The mineral quality comes back strong on the silky, focused finish, which goes on and on. An outstanding blend of power and finesse. Disgorged September, 2012. LAHTUAM." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous

"Refined and creamy, with a rich vein of smoky minerality layered with flavors of strawberry pâte de fruit, dried marjoram, peach skin and marzipan. An elegant version, but firm and focused throughout. Drink now through 2025. 76 cases imported." —Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator
