Winemonkey and I tasted some 2002s in the past that we deemed quite tasty including Pichon Lalande and Clerc Milon from Pauillac. Cabernet fared better than Merlot overall and wines from Graves/Pessac are by all accounts particularly good bets. The 2002 La Mission Haut Brion proves that theory correct.
We tasted a half bottle of the 2002 La Mission Haut Brion recently and the wine was lovely overall. It is definitely ready to drink now so enjoy it while you are waiting for other slow to mature
