Dom PĂ©rignon P2 2000
Dom PĂ©rignon is Vintage only. Each Vintage wine is created from the best grapes grown in a single year. The uniqueness of Dom PĂ©rignon vintages lies in the way they evolve - not steadily in a linear way, but by successive windows of expression that are called "PlĂ©nitudes". The Second PlĂ©nitude is revealed after over sixteen years of maturation. It is the ultimate expression of Dom PĂ©rignonâ€™s singularity. The wine is intense, vibrant and precise. The energy of the wine is at its peak. Dom PĂ©rignon P2 2000 draws as much from its roots as it projects into the future of its PlĂ©nitudes. The extra time for the slow active maturation on the lees brings out a perfectly measured balance in tension. The various facets of the wine are confirmed and clarified. Dom PĂ©rignon P2 2000 goes beyond the initial balance: it has grown, become more complete, more accomplished, more coherent and more harmonious. In an impressionist fashion, Dom PĂ©rignon P2 2000 shines out of a cloud that embodies its multiple characteristics. Its harmony is in its changeability, with a range of sensations constantly being redefined and reconstituted. Nose: 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 whole exudes smoky grey accents. Palate: The vibrant opening strikes the first chord, a prelude to a tactile complexity. The length is exquisitely bitter and abounds with sap, a mingling of licorice. and toasted malt.
