The 2000 Dom Pérignon P2 is decidedly exuberant. Ripe apricot, orange peel, pastry, baked apple, butter and vanillin all flesh out in this beautifully resonant, toasty edition of the P2. Soft curves and voluptuous fruit add to the wine’s immediacy and sheer appeal. The 2000 is not hugely complex or layered, but it has plenty of palate presence and overall intensity. The 2000 P2 is a terrific choice for readers who enjoy Champagnes that show the more advanced aromas, flavors and textures that develop in bottle. Tasted two times with consistent notes. 96 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous July 2018
Amazing nose of vanilla cream, coffee, toast, ash and grilled nuts. In the mouth it is very alive, taught and energetic with a mouth-filling mousse and flavours of lime, wood smoke and a slightly salty seaweed-like note, along with underlying ripeness – there’s even a touch of pineapple. The finish is firm, fresh and persistent, with a cleansing chalky sensation and taste.
Generally, the first plénitude, Dom Pérignon vintage, is revealed after at least eight years in the cellars, depending on the vintage, and the second plénitude is the result of at least 16 years of maturation.
Then, eventually, there is a third plénitude, after around 30 years, when the Champagne has spent no less than 20 years on its lees. 6th April, 2017 by Patrick Schmitt, The Drinks Business
