Details

Dom Perignon P2, 2000 Most vintages of Dom Perignon are first released (1st plenitude) at 8 years of age. P2, the second release (previously known as Oenotheque), is released after at least 16 years on its lees and finally a P3 is released after around 30 years. Dom Perignon's winemaker, Vincent Chaperon describes the P2 as a magnified version of the initial release. “It has matured on its lees from 2001 to 2016, so it has had 15 years intimate contact with the lees, and we have observed what we are looking for in the second plénitude, which is higher energy, it is when everything becomes bigger, and not only the aromatics”. “You can observe on the palate that the texture, the creaminess has been beefed up.”

Drinking Dates: 2018-2030

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.
