P2, the new facet of the Dom Pérignon universe, an energetic and different expression of Dom Pérignon Vintage.The product of the secret alchemy of time. The wine with an exacting level of clarity and precision. It is lifted, bursting forth with a penetrating energy, speaking out clearly after a metamorphosis in the absolute silence of the cellars. If all of Dom Pérignon is the pursuit of the finest expression of the best grapes from exceptional years, P2 is definitively the Plénitude Of Energy. Dom Pérignon P2 is the Second Plénitude of Dom Pérignon, the result of over 16 years of elaboration. The wine is intense, vibrant and precise.Each Dom Pérignon vintage is a distinct act of creation. The Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave's power of creation is centered upon its absolute dedication ton vintage wines, coming exclusively from on year and one year only. It is the result of a long and monitored elaboration process including a precise assemblage and an extended period of maturation of the lees, giving Dom Pérignon champagnes their singularity. On the nose: After a short breathing period, the wine has an intense, full and radiant bouquet, with notes of honeysuckle, orange colored fruits, toasted 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 - balances it all out.

James SucklingJames Suckling - "A P2 release indicating it has been matured to the 2nd Plenitude, the middle stage of Dom Perignon's three-phase life as defined by Richard Geoffroy. This is a wine with some real tension between complexity and freshness that makes for incredibly engaging drinking. The nose offers up a little white peppery edge from the pinot; oyster shell saline freshness, red florals, sweet smelling woody spices and brioche, spiced biscuits and subtle roasted coffee notes - impressively complex. The phenolics register on the palate as a discreetly mineral, saline character, there's sorbet-like texture through the middle before finishing with comet-like line and length."

Wine SpectatorThis vibrant Champagne is tightly knit up front, with a dense core of smoky minerality and ripe dried apricot and white cherry flavors. Expands on the satiny palate, revealing accents of pastry cream, toast, singed orange peel and toasted coconut that echo on the persistent finish. Drink now through 2028.
