Details
This rare release takes Dom Pérignon's superb 2002 vintage to the next level. Filled with a new energy and intensity, the champagne has reached its second plénitude - the point at which it evolves into a different expression.
Many consider 2002 the best year for champagne in the last 30. And, after 15 years on its lees, the P2 boasts an even greater longevity. So, while its exotic aromas and subtle salinity are exquisite today, it is also ideal for the cellar.

TASTING NOTES:
Vibrant and intense, with an exotic maturity

Appearance

A medium pale gold with very fine bubbles.

Aroma

Complex and exotic with crystallized fruits, marzipan, sweet spices and fresh coriander. Time in the glass brings fresh saffron, a subtle saltiness and a deeper, more reserved bouquet.

Taste

An instant hit of compelling flavours, opulent and ethereal, lively yet sensual, around a core of fruit. Then comes a lusciousness, balancing salinity with hints of liquorice.

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
DOM PÉRIGNON VINTAGE 2002 - PLÉNITUDE 2

While overall 2012 was dry and warm in Saint-Émilion, a very wet spring and early summer meant shoot development and flowering in the vineyards was uneven.
 

2002 welcomed in a warm, dry spring – and in the vineyards, flowering was perfect.
 

In the summer, sun shone and rain fell in just the right quantities for Dom Pérignon’s pinot noir and chardonnay grapes, while September winds helped to achieve a ideal ripeness – particularly in the chardonnay.
 

After 15 years on its lees, the vintage now achieves a new sublimity, with great potential for aging.
