The uniqueness of Dom Pérignon vintages lies in the way they evolve - not steadily in a linear way but through successive windows of expression. These privileged points in time are called “Plénitudes” - captured moments when the wine sings higher and stronger.

P2 is the Second Plénitude of Dom Pérignon Vintage, the result of 16 years of elaboration. The opposing and complementary elements of the assemblage resound for an increasingly sharp intensity. The energy of the wine is at its peak.

While the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2000, first presented in 2008, revealed a combination of freshness and ripeness, of effervescence and harmony, it now projects a new expression. This Second Plenitude, P2 2000, draws from new energy, intensity, vitality and depth.

Viticulture:
The year was characterised by challenging contrasts between cold and rainy periods, and warm and stormy weather. Summer was uncertain and often gloomy. The weather brightened up miraculously during the last few days of August. And the fine days continued right up until the end of the harvest - which made the vintage what it is. Picking began with Pinot Noir on 11 September.

Tasting notes:
'The bouquet is ripe, lively and generous. The warm aromas of hay and brioche mingle with those of bergamot orange and russet stone fruit. The overall effect exudes smoky grey accents. The vibrant opening strikes the first chord, a prelude to a complexity that is more tactile than plump, and only gives of itself gradually. The distinguished viscosity is understated and simply fits around the contours of the wine. The length is exquisitely bitter and abounds with sap, a mingling of liquorice and toasted malt.' – Winemaker

'A beautiful nose of baked peach, lime blossom and graphite draws you into the glass of this stunning 2000, whose flavors of brioche, salted almond and spun honey are wrapped around sleek, mouthwatering acidity and a streak of smoke-tinged mineral. This deftly meshed Champagne is hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2030.' – Wine Spectator, 97/100
