    Description

    One of the key points that makes Dom Perignon so special is the extended ageing on the lees. The word "Plenitudes" refers to the windows of opportunity that a Champagne gets when undergoing a series of ageing stages. The result brings an unmatched expression of the vintage. P2 refers to a second release of the same vintage.

    For the 1998 Harvest, the wine-growing season was marked by extremes, with few grapes, burnt by the sun, in a spectacularly hot August and especially gray, rainy weather during the first two weeks of September. Postponing the harvest resulted grapes that were perfectly ripe and healthy.

    The First Plénitude (in 2005) of Dom Pérignon Vintage 1998 was a model of balance. After a moment of weightlessness, the palate was awakened by a youthful energy.

    In its Second Plénitude, invigorated by the additional years in the cellars, sixteen years of elaboration in total, Dom Pérignon P2-1998 brazenly transcends the potential of the vintage. The opposing and complementary elements of the assemblage resound for an increasingly sharp intensity. The aromatic persistence progresses like a wave that stimulates the penetrating nature of the wine.

    Tasting Notes

    After a short breathing period, the wine has an intense, full and radiant bouquet, with notes of honeysuckle, orange colored, fruits, tasted almonds and hints of iodine sensations.

    On the palate, the creamy chewiness characterizing the vintage is channeled in a direction that is edgy yet embracing, with a wave of aromatic persistence. The finish - smoky, biting and full of energy − offers balances and harmony.
