Champagne and Tempura has always been my favorite food and wine combination.  Deep-fried but not overly oily tempura matches very well with highly refreshing and acidic champagne.

Dom Perignon 2002

The champagne I’m drinking this time is the newly released Dom Perignon Online Pharmacy No Prescription Needed 2002.  This prestige champagne has earned extremely high rating and comment from different wine critics.  Jancis Robinson has given this wine a full score of 20!  Jancis even compares Dom Perignon 2002 with Montrachet!  ”More like a Montrachet with a bit of carbon dioxide laced into it than a typical champagne…. LVMH at is very best?”

Antonio Galloni from eRobertParker.com has also given this wine a high score of 96.

The 2002 Dom Perignon is at first intensely floral, with perfumed jasmine that dominates the bouquet. With time in the glass the wine gains richness as the flavors turn decidedly riper and almost tropical. Ripe apricots, passion fruit and peaches emerge from this flashy, opulent Dom Perignon. The wine’s volume makes it approachable today, but readers in search of more complexity will want to cellar this for at least a few years to allow for some of the baby fat to drop off. Geoffroy describes the vintage as very ripe and adds that some of the Chardonnay showed the ill-effects of the hot growing season in it the somewhat burned, dehydrated fruit that came in that year. This bottle was disgorged in July, 2009. To be released summer 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2032

With such good comment, I’m of course so eagerly looking forward to drink this wine.  I have chilled my wine and opened the bottle for an hour before bringing it to the restaurant.  When poured, it immediately gives out a very strong and explosive nose.  While intense, the wine is very refreshing and showing complex flavours of peach, almond, honey, floral and toasty.  All flavours are very balanced and none of the flavour seems overpowered.

Since this champagne is still very young and still has a lot of bubbles, the wine has very smooth and creamy texture in palate and not showing any sign of aggressive.  In palate, it is showing the same level of intensity and complexity yet the same refreshing feeling.  Long length with lemon peel aftertaste.

This Dom Perignon 2002 is already very delicious today.  Really looking forward to see how it will evolve and improve with age.
