A new dimension of longevity for the Dom Perignon 2002 Vintage

Time is at the heart of the Dom Perignon equation". It is thanks to Richard Geoffroy, the former Cellar Master of the House, an individual who truly embodied the heart and soul of Dom Perignon for 28 years, that the concept of "Plenitude" was born. The expression of a vintage is not fixed in time. Instead, it evolves in stages. The P2 or Second Plenitude offers a brand new expression of a single Vintage Champagne after more than 15 years in the making.

Following seventeen years of bottle age in the underground chalk cellars of the Dom Perignon Champagne House, the Dom Perignon 2002 Vintage Plenitude 2 allows the vintage to enter a new era of its evolution, offering a window of how it is at this point in time.

Product of an exceptional vintage, the Dom Perignon 2002 Vintage Plenitude 2 captures the fascinating personality of a year that will truly mark the history of Champagne.

Transformed by the many years spent evolving in bottle in the estate cellar, the Second Plenitude of Dom Perignon 2002 has reached the peak of its vitality. The Dom Perignon 2002 Vintage Plenitude 2 is ready to unveil the new dimension of its vintage, a dimension that offers a kind of complexity, depth and intensity that only time can achieve. A certain power and richness combine with a delicious complexity, freshness and minerality.

Warm, gourmand and exotic, this champagne charms the nose with its bright aromas. Touches of candied fruits, frangipane and sweet spices follow refined notes of saffron. Gradually, the aromatic bouquet becomes more mysterious, more restrained, evolving iodized and saline notes. It is, however, on the palate that Dom Perignon 2002 Vintage Plenitude 2 expresses itself to the fullest, revealing a remarkable opulence, as well as an airy grace reminiscent of the light movements of a ballerina. With great sensuality and depth, the palate offers bright fruit, further enhanced by an intense energy. On a long, lingering finish that seems infinite, the champagne expresses a refined character with slight saline notes and flavors of licorice.

Parker : 96 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2002 Dom Pérignon P2 is still a youthful wine, but it is beginning to develop appreciable complexity, wafting from the glass with notes of of iodine, warm bread, ripe orchard fruit, peach, citrus oil, smoke and peat, which in Geoffroy's words are on the verge of aromatic over-ripeness. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a textural, voluminous profile, pinpoint bubbles and a chalky, phenolic finish. This is a ripe and powerful Dom Pérignon that finds its closest stylistic analogy in the 1990 vintage, and it is considerably less evolved than the more tertiary 2000 P2 today. While the P2 is a bit drier and more precise on the finish than the original release, given the wine's slow evolution the difference between the two is less pronounced than it has been for any vintage since 1996.
