Plénitude 2

2004

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.

SEASONS

 
With its remarkable ease and generosity, the 2004 winemaking year stands out in the history of Dom Pérignon.   
The vines developed with great regularity and without incident, resulting in substantial yields of large grapes.
While the weather was generally anything but extreme, the vines developed with great regularity and without incident. The dry heat of the final weeks really shaped the vintage. The harvest began on September 24th, providing grapes that were both in excellent health and superbly ripe.

NOSE

 
The 2004 fruit remains discreet, yet more clearly defined in this second life of the Vintage. Citrusy notes of pink grapefruit and blood oranges gently cede to figs. The additional time on the lees elevates the minerality of the vintage with the sublime maturity that is Dom Pérignon’s signature. Cocoa, mocha, roasted nuts, brioche and honey.

PALATE

 
The wine balances on the edge with immediacy and surprise, evolving between tension and weightlessness. It has an extreme, tactile precision, deep and sculptural. The sensations come together in a persistent and elegant finish, underlined by sappy, licorice notes.
