See here for a fascinating article by Jancis Robinson on a recent major blind tasting by 50 top UK trade professionals of the prestige 2002 vintage Champagnes, one of the great vintages of the last few decades.

The single top wine of the tasting, ahead of Krug 2002, Selosse 2002, Cristal 2002 and ranked the best of the best: Bollinger R.D. 2002.

Not only that, but it was one of only a few Champagnes that outperformed (already high) expectations, as there was a tally of expected performance before the blind tasting which was compared to actual blind tasting performance (see graph at bottom).
