Plénitude 2 is the second life for a Dom Pérignon vintage. A slow and controlled transformation takes place over almost fifteen years, extending and enhancing the wine’s longevity. This is how the champagne builds its energy, and reaches the pinnacle of its vitality. It is brighter and more vital than ever. It unfolds all of its characteristics, becoming fuller, longer, deeper and more intense. The bouquet is ripe, lively and generous. The warm aromas of hay and brioche mingle with those of bergamot orange and russet stone fruit. The overall effect exudes smoky grey accents. The vibrant opening strikes the first chord, a prelude to a complexity that is more tactile than plump, and only gives of 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.

James Suckling

A Champagne that has turned to a very fine texture with dried pineapple and lemon character. Medium to full body, complex and flavorful palate. Shows length and beauty. Pie crust, cooked apple and lemon rind continue on the finish. A truly great 2000 with a combination of finesse and strength. It’s very, very minerally to a point of sea salt. It was disgorged in first half of 2016. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator

A beautiful nose of baked peach, lime blossom and graphite draws you into the glass of this stunning 2000, whose flavors of brioche, salted almond and spun honey are wrapped around sleek, mouthwatering acidity and a streak of smoke-tinged mineral. This deftly meshed Champagne is hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2030. *Collectibles* (AN)

Jancis Robinson

Green, leafy, garden notes on the nose initially, which developed into something floral. Quite a rich start. I could certainly drink this now! Open and particularly friendly already but with the tension of an especially classic Dom Perignon. Just slight chewiness on the end. 18.5/20 points.

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.
