Dom Pérignon is vintage champagne only.
Each vintage is a creation, singular and unique, that expresses both the character of the year, and the character of Dom Pérignon.
Plénitude 2 is the second life of Dom Pérignon, patiently brought to a new elevation and set on a path to eternity. After close to 15 years of slow transformation in the cellars, Dom Pérignon expands its energy and rises to an apex of essential, radiant vitality, in its state of Plénitude. Elevated to new heights, it unfurls across every dimensions – wider, deeper, longer, more intense - and gifted further with an extended longevity.
Dom Pérignon Vintage 2002 Plénitude 2 expresses confident, enhanced maturity. The assertive character of this wine now gives it genuine and authentic power; a delicate complexity woven through with freshness and minerality, coming together in a light texture. It conjures up pale gold, enhanced with the energy of light: radiant gold.
Its complexity starts out warm, golden, shimmering, with eastern exoticism: crystallised fruits, frangipane, sweet spices, fresh coriander. On the first nose, saffron is greyer and more saline, with the bouquet slowly becoming complex and then more austere, mysterious, clean and soothing.
The flavour instantly unfurls leaving a bright, expressive, delicate aftertaste that is lively yet sensual, and still very fruit-forward. The nose and palate are strikingly similar, and the velvety mouth-feel becomes deeper and richer. The overall result displays intense, elegant, saline and slight liquorice notes.
For each vintage and from its inception, a limited number of bottles are set aside in the cellars, predestined for longer maturation. With this extra time, the inner activity in the bottle increases.
The yeast transfers its energy to the wine... a mysterious transfer of life.
