So rich and yet so crisp. Flavor nuances spring up everywhere, all with a graceful touch. I don’t remember having a better champagne.

The 2002 Clos du Mesnil is wonderfully pliant and expressive in the glass. The radiant personality of the year comes through in the wine's ripe, tropically-leaning flavors and open-knit personality. I imagine the 2002 will develop at a relatively fast pace by Clos du Mesnil standards. Even so, there is more than enough freshness underpinning the fruit to support at least two decades of very fine drinking. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2017)

This gets fresher every time I taste it. I tried it today with Olivier Krug at the property, and it had puligny scale and the most pure and long Mesnil belemnita chalk finish one could ask for.

Absolutely rockstar. This is a beautiful wine in a great place with tons of life ahead. Made the 04 Salon look a touch flabby.

A dazzling nose of fresh, bright white flowers and a steely undertow with flint. The palate is intense, with bright tight fruit and powerful but brilliant acidity. This is amazing stuff- still very young. Great stuff- for the ages
