Product DetailsDom Pérignon champagnes evolve through a series of plénitudes – points at which they reach full expression. The 1998 vintage has reached its second plénitude, revealing a broader flavour profile. P2 Blanc 1998 has been matured for 16 years, meaning the characteristic dark, mineral, spiced singularity of Dom Pérignon is clearer than ever. This is a remarkably complex and intense vintage.

Blend and Origin
Dom Pérignon P2 Blanc 1998
An equal blend of pinot noir and chardonnay, this vintage reflects a hot August, and exceptional rainfall in the first half of September. The vintage prevailed, and the grapes were at peak maturity when they went to press. After the vintage’s first release in 2005, it spent an extra nine years on its lees in the cellar, to reveal a new plénitude.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
