This Dom Pérignon P2 is the Second Plénitude of the 2000 vintage, the result of over 16 years development. Intense, vibrant and precise, the wines 'energy' is at its peak. The vibrant opening strikes the first chord, a prelude to a complexity that is more tactile than plump, and only gives itself gradually. The distinguished viscosity is understated and simply fits around the contours of the wine. The length is exquisitely bitter and abounds with sap, a mingling of liquorice and toasted malt.
