Dom Perignon "P2" 2000 in Gift Box
Dom Perignon is pleased to unveil Dom Perignon P2 2000, the second expression of this vintage. Presence and relevance reveal a wine of 17 years of maturation. First launched in 2008, the vintage here acquires a new expression in its Second Plenitude, marked by extra energy, intensity, vitality and depth. Dom Perignon P2 2000 captures the spirit of the second plenitude of Dom Perignon: peak of energy, intensity, high definition and precision.
The year was characterised by challenging contrasts between cold and rainy periods, and warm and stormy weather. Summer was uncertain and often gloomy. The weather brightened up miraculously during the last few days of August. And the fine days continued right up until the end of the harvest - which made the vintage what it is. Picking began with Pinot Noir on 11 September.
On the 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 overall effect exudes smoky grey accents.
On the palate: 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.
Dom Perignon P2 2000 pairs beautifully with caviar. The caviar underscores the precision, the depth, and the maturity of P2 2000's additional years of elaboration in the Dom Perignon cellar. A substance that is both dark and luminous, black, it shines and becomes translucent. The caviar transfigures the energy of Dom Perignon P2 2000.
