This vintage, considered one of the best in the last twenty years, showcases a vibrant yellow colour with fresh plum and nashi pear aromas. Its taste evolves from citrus and tropical fruits to a creamy, patisserie-like richness, embodying the elegance and harmony that define Ruinart. Aged six years on the lees, this champagne is now in a prime phase of its life, ready to be enjoyed up to 2030.

97 points Vinous (Antonio Galloni) "Still a stunner, the 2002 Dom Ruinart is just as gorgeous as it has always been. Warm, toasty notes meld into apricots, succulent peaches, white flowers, and spices in a rich, expansive Champagne that captures the essence of the year. The 2002 is pure, full-throttle opulence, yet all the elements are very much in balance. A creamy, resonant finish rounds things out in style. Multiple tastings have shown that the 2002 is shutting down in bottle, so my suggestion is to be patient. What a gorgeous wine this is. This bottle was disgorged in March 2012."

96 points Wine Spectator "Shows beautiful, lacy texture, weaving persistent and mouthwatering acidity with flavors of patisserie pear, dried apricot, almond paste, pickled ginger, acacia blossom, and clover honey. This is underscored by a rich note of smoky minerality that rings out on the finish. Collectibles"

95 points Wine Enthusiast  "A superb, mature wine that is ripe, toasty, and full of yellow- and white-fruit flavors. A fine balance brings up spice, an opulent texture, a taut edge of steel, and a feeling that this fine wine is ready to drink. It can age, and it will be better over the next few years as its secondary aromas stay in balance with the fruitiness. Cellar Selection, Best of Year 2013"

94 points Decanter "Dom Ruinart 2002 is a blessed creation with 72% Avize and Chouilly and more surprisingly 28% Chardonnay from Pinot villages like Sillery and Puisieulx. Painfully youthful but already completely harmonious. All the bits and pieces are there in small portions and time will make them stronger and deeper."
