Dom Perignon P2

Dom Perignon P2

The objective of champagne? Celebration, enjoyment, the crowning of one glorious moment, the acknowledgement of a more sombre one. Whichever way you look at it – champagne spells occasion, and so does Dom Pérignon. A champagne house that prides itself on it’s dedication to vintage, Dom Perignon fine wines come exclusively from one year and one year only – a true challenge for a unique interpretation of the seasons, and for reinvention. A feature of the house, these fine wines have the potential to gradually transform, becoming even more ‘complex’ than the vintage bottled at source; each evolution contributing to Dom Pérignon’s beautiful singularity.



With House Dom Perignon, their First Plénitude is revealed after at least seven years of maturation on the lees, depending on the vintage. The wine then embodies the perfect balance of Dom Pérignon, its greatest promise; this is Dom Pérignon Vintage, the Plénitude of harmony. The Second Plénitude asserts itself after a minimum of 12 years of maturation on the lees. In this window of expression, the wine is majestic in its Dom Pérignon intensity. Here it expresses its scope, its expansion. This is Dom Pérignon P2, the Plénitude of energy.

The experience of the Dom Pérignon Second Plénitude unfolds in a high-definition universe, both intense and penetrating, underscoring the avant-gardism of Dom Pérignon. In 1998, the wine was created to one day project the future of the Second Plénitude, a differentiation with its share of surprises. Today Dom Pérignon in Second Plenitude sets it’s own tempo, an interpretation of the pace of time.

The Third Plénitude then comes after a minimum of 20 years of maturation on the lees. The wine now fully embodies another dimension where its essence enters the unknown; this is the Plénitude of complexity. After three metamorphoses, Dom Pérignon’s uniqueness is almost completely revealed and accomplished.



Dom Pérignon P2 owes its intensity to its precision, paradoxically balancing yet embracing, chiselling without breaking, barely touching without ever hitting hard. Like any high-tech creation, it reveals itself in high-definition, unveiled in a dark, understated, powerful aesthetic. Its tone-on-tone bottle and minimalist brushed aluminium box, in a deep matte, seem almost to be locked to temporarily subdue the wine’s energy.



Dom Pérignon P2-1998

Intensity and energy
The First Plénitude (in 2005) of Dom Pérignon Vintage 1998 was a model of balance. After amoment of weightlessness, the palate was awakened by a youthful energy. In its Second Plénitude, invigorated by the additional years in the cellars, sixteen years of elaboration in total, Dom Pérignon P2-1998 brazenly transcends the potential of the vintage. The opposing and complementary elements of the assemblage resound for an increasingly sharp intensity. The aromatic persistence progresses like a wave that stimulates the penetrating nature of the wine.
