2002 Dom Perignon "Andy Warhol" Edition.....$134.99

Very limited, only 300 bottles made it to Missouri. We have it, and we are not adding an upcharge for this rare wine. Same price as our regular Dom Perignon -- now the GREAT 2002 VINTAGE!

"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"
-- Rated 96/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Andy Warhol
"Warhol notes in his diary, ‘back to the hotel and be picked up by the 2000 people - it's a club of twenty guys who got together and they’re going to buy 2000 bottles of Dom Pérignon which they will put in a sealed room until the year 2000’. The most desirable delicacy, known to age marvelously, what else would the 2000 club lock away for 20 years? What better prize to anticipate than a secret stock of Dom Pérignon?
Dom Pérignon asked the Design Laboratory at Central Saint Martins School of Art & Design to reinterpret its timeless bottle in commemoration of Andy Warhol. A unique set of three bottles, red, blue and yellow, paying homage to the artist’s adventures in colour." -- Moet Chandon
