This event was put together to try a number of the highest rated 2002 Champagnes side by side for a direct comparison. While they are still in their youth, many have shown extremely well, and this was a perfect way to sample them in a small group setting. The food pairings made by everyone proved to be an outstanding complement to the wines.
These are all very good wines. Some are showing better than others right now. Certainly the hope is that these will continue to evolve and develop more complexity over time. Hopefully we can repeat this tasting in 10 years and see.
