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.

Tasting notes:
'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.' – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 97/100

''Slate, crushed rocks, apricot jam, mint, honeysuckle and mint are some of the notes that run through the 2000 Dom Pérignon P2. Open-knit, racy and seductive, the 2000 is a rare P2 that will drink well right out of the gate. The reductive character from long aging on the lees that is such a P2 signature adds nuance without overpowering the wine. There is wonderful breadth and amplitude here. In sum, the 2000 presents a striking interplay of the maturity that develops over extended time on lees and freshness. The creamy, seamless finish only adds to the wine’s considerable immediacy and sheer appeal. Baked apple, toast, brioche, pear, smoke, slate and lemon confit add nuances throughout. What a gorgeous wine this is. Drink to 2030.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 96/100

'The 2000 Dom Pérignon P2 is drinking beautifully, wafting from the glass with complex and gently reductive aromas of iodine, lemon oil, tangerine and oyster shell that have begun to develop appreciable tertiary nuance. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and expansive, with a broad attack, incisive acids, a classy mousse and a long, precise and mouthwateringly saline finish. The year 2000 delivered a precocious Dom Pérignon, and this recently disgorged rendition has really benefited from the additional time sur lattes, acquiring notably more complexity—while retaining more energy—than the original disgorgement. Given its maturing profile I would plan to drink bottles within the next decade. Drink to 2028.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 95/100

'Green, leafy, garden notes on the nose initially, which developed into something floral. Quite a rich start. I could certainly drink this now! Open and particularly friendly already but with the tension of an especially classic Dom Pérignon. Just slight chewiness on the end.' – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 18.5/20

'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
