The 2002 Brut Rose Grand Vintage is a rich, weighty wine endowed with considerable richness. The Pinot component is quite prominent in the flavor and textural profile. Far from an easygoing, aperitif rose, the 2002 Brut Rose Grand Vintage might very well redefine what consumers expect from a big-brand wine. Clean, chalky notes frame the exquisite, vinous finish. This is a fabulous effort from Moet & Chandon. The 2002 Brut Rose Grand Vintage is 51% Pinot Noir (of which 27% is still red wine), 28% Chardonnay and 21% Pinot Meunier. Lot LAFXQAA. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.
