P2

1998

The ultimate Dom Pérignon

The uniqueness of Dom Pérignon vintages lies in the way they evolve - not steadily in a linear way but through successive windows of expression. These privileged points in time are called “Plénitudes” - captured moments when the wine sings higher and stronger.

P2 is the Second Plénitude of Dom Pérignon, the result of 16 years of elaboration. The energy reaches its climax. The dark, mineral, iodine, spicy singularity of Dom Pérignon resounds higher and clearer than ever.
Meet the ultimate Dom Pérignon.

1998

ON THE PALATE

The creamy chewiness characterizing the vintage is channeled in a direction that is edgy yet embracing, with a wave of aromatic persistence. The finish – smoky, biting and full of energy – offers balances and harmony.

ON THE NOSE

After a short breathing period, the wine has an intense, full and radiant bouquet, with notes of honeysuckle, orange colored fruits, toasted almonds and hints of iodine sensations.

The 1998 Harvest

The year 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 the first two weeks of September. The harvest was delayed and the wait was rewarded with the miraculously fine weather that followed. The grapes were healthy and at peak maturity.
