Plénitude 2 1998
Dom Pérignon elevated to its second life
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.
The year 1998 was marked by two unusual and opposing occurrences: the spectacular burning of the grapes caused by record high temperatures in August followed by exceptional rainfall in September.
The First Plénitude of Dom Pérignon Vintage 1998 (released in 2005) was a model of balance.
In its Second Plénitude, invigorated by the additional years in the cellars, Dom Pérignon P2 1998 transcends the potential of the vintage.
The dark, mineral, iodine, spiced singularity of Dom Pérignon vibrates higher and clearer than ever.
ON THE NOSEThe wine has achieved an intense, full and radiant bouquet, with notes of honeysuckle, orange colored fruits, toasted almonds and hints of iodine sensations.
ON THE PALATEThe creamy chewiness characterizing the vintage is channeled in a direction that is edgy yet embracing, with a wave of aromatic persistence. Its finish – smoky, biting and full of energy – offers balance and harmony.
FOOD PAIRINGPairing caviar with Dom Pérignon is evident. The caviar underscores the precision, the depth, and the maturity of P2 1998's additional years of elaboration in the Dom Pérignon cellar. A substance that is both dark and luminous, black, it shines and becomes translucent. The caviar transfigures the energy of Dom Pérignon P2 1998.
