"Two thousand two is a classical,beautifully balanced vintage with captivating sweet fruit,pliant texture and seductive charm. The wines are delivering on their early promise—and it’s always nice to be able to say that about a Burgundy vintage. If anything,the 2002s are evolving more slowly than I had originally predicted. Wines that I would have expected to be at their best 12 to 15 years after the vintage are in no danger of falling apart anytime soon; on the contrary,many of the better 2002s I tasted this fall were just embarking on their planes of peak drinkability and some still need to be held".

Stephen Tanzer. (Vinous. February 2016).

"A wonderful vintage of pure,rich,stylish reds and soft rounded whites.
An early start to the flowering was followed by a variable summer with a bit of everything, from cold to warm to hot and back again. A long period of dry weather was starting to be a problem when early September rain arrived, replenishing the vines. When the wind turned north the grapes were dried and harvest could begin on 16 September under clear blue skies. 2002 is deservedly a popular vintage among Burgundy aficionados. What is there not to love about the pure fine forest fruits and strawberry aromas in the best red wines and the fresh mineral tones of the great whites? Wines to enjoy or keep for another ten years or more".
