Dom Perignon - Champagne named after the world famous monk Pierre Perignon. According to many, this man is the inventor of making champagne sparkling wine according to the method traditionnelle. Inventor or not, he has managed to create a real benchmark for prestige cuvees with Dom Perignon.

P2 stands for Plénitude Deuxième, which in turn says as much as the Second Life of the Vintage 1998. In the recent past, this type of Dom Pérignon's, which remained sur lies for years longer, was not called P2 but Oenothèque. The first batch of a Dom Pérignon Vintage – P1, but it doesn't say so on the label – has as its main goal harmony in strength and refinement. So harmony. The second life of a Dom Pérignon. After a few extra years of being on the ropes, more intensity, more energy, more complexity and more length result. The definition of Dom Pérignon Vintage P2 is therefore harmony again and then in intensity, energy, complexity, depth and length. It is a great wine, a great sparkling wine.

Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon's master chef de cave, believes that every Dom Pérignon vintage goes through three distinct phases. He calls these phases plénitudes. So there is a second and a third plénitude – P2 and P3. Geoffroy firmly believes in the great qualities of 'active maturation' in the bottle. An 'active maturation' sur lies – at the depot of the second fermentation in the bottle. The disgorgement is therefore postponed until a carefully chosen later moment. In this case, the wine has been able to mature in its depot - 'actively' - for more than 15 years.

The 2004 Dom Pérignon P2 is precise and wonderfully refined, just like the first release and this 2004 is a super classic Dom Perrignon find. Dried flowers, brioche, apricot preserves, sage, mint and chamomile fit seamlessly into the glass. You can enjoy the 2004 now, but you can also keep it for another ten years. This version comes in a beautiful gift box.

Dom Pérignon P2 Brut is a Champagne of the highest level. Not only very exclusive, but also very exquisite. This superior sparkling wine requires an equally superior refined gastronomic dish. This could be sole and turbot in a refined cream sauce or a beautiful farm chicken with morels inserted under the skin or a fine sauce with morels. This royal Champagne should be enjoyed like a great white Burgundy, like a Montrachet. So a large glass, which allows the wine to get the necessary air. And at a slightly chilled rather than cold temperature. Ideal is 12° Celsius or even a little more.
