If, like us, you think that the best way to ring in the new year is with a flute of bubbly, then you’ll be happy to know that Dom Pérignon has just launched two new bottles of champagne adding to its vast collection of vintage specific offerings.
Dom Pérignon P2 2000
The P2 2000 is the second Plénitude of Dom Pérignon’s 2000 Vintage, first presented back in 2008. At the time of its presentation, the vintage 2000 was a combination of freshness and ripeness, and of effervescence and harmony. After having time to further mature however, the P2 2000 enters into a stage where there is a lot of ion intensity, and minerality. On the palate the P2 2000 is still vibrant with a rich, creamy mouthfeel, interspersed with the aromas of brioche mingling with orange peel and dry fruits.
Nose – warm aromas of hay and brioche, bergamot orange, russet stone fruit. Ripe, lively and generous with overall smoky grey accents.
Palate – vibrant opening as a prelude to complexity. And understated but distinguished viscosity. Exquisitely bitter length with a mingling of liquorice and toasted malt.
