"Philippe Drouhin and resident enologist Laurence Jobard described the 2002 vintage as 'one of those vintages where almost everything was easy, except perhaps for a bit of anxiety at the appearance of some rot at the end of August. Thankfully, the north wind appeared, dried up the rot and concentrated the fruit. However, there was just enough rot tinge where we thought it best to sort out those bunches. We had excellent ripeness and high sugars and thus, there was very little chaptalization. The malos were extended and we elected to rack when they finished. The wines are also on the tender side and thus we decided to bottle a bit earlier than usual as we felt there was no further benefit to be had and there was the risk of some wines drying out if left in cask and almost everything was in bottle by December'. Overall, as the scores suggest, this is an outstanding vintage for Drouhin and perhaps even a bit better across the board than 2001."
