Formerly known as Œnothèque Dom Pérignon now releases this special vintage under the name P2 - short for Plénitude 2. Dom Pérignon P2 is a 1998 champagne that has been aged for 15 years - hence its new name, which refers to the fact that it has reached its second plenitude. Besides, every bottle of this exclusive vintage is tested by Dom Pérignons cellar master Richard Geoffrey himself, before being distributed for sale. Of course, the vintage inherits the creamy mouth-feel that has become one of the brand's trademarks throughout the years. Regarding its taste, the P2 is rich and harmonic - continuously bedazzling your palatal regions with its exquisite taste. A truly exclusive and noble champagne.

“Richard Geoffroy calls this ‘athletic’ and is proud of having picked later than most. Released in 2014. Delicate but very concentrated too. Round and rich. Quite opulent. Broad and muscular; meaty. Drink 2014-2024” (Nov 2018)

“The 1998 Dom Pérignon P2 is superb. Just starting to soften, the 1998 is beautifully layered in the glass, with a translucent, vertical sense of structure that is compelling and an attractive top note of reduction that adds freshness. Vibrant and yet wonderfully complex, the 1998 is a gorgeous wine for drinking now and over the next two decades or so. This is a very strong showing. With more and more time, the 1998 seems to have acquired an additional dimension of nuance. This is an especially majestic bottle of the 1998. ” (July 2018)

Antonio Galloni

“The 1998 Dom Pérignon P2 is clearly heading into its next plateau of maturity, as evidenced by a host of coffee, roasted almond, butter, brioche, caramel, lemon confit and pastry notes. Even so, there is a good bit of freshness to play off a generally mature set of aromas and flavors. Readers who enjoy mature Champagne will find quite a bit to like in the 1998. Today, it is especially open-knit and giving. Two recent bottles have been terrific. ” (July 2019)

James Suckling

“A P2 release indicating it has been matured to the 2nd Plenitude, the middle stage of Dom Perignon's three-phase life as defined by Richard Geoffroy. This is a wine with some real tension between complexity and freshness that makes for incredibly engaging drinking. The nose offers up a little white peppery edge from the pinot; oyster shell saline freshness, red florals, sweet smelling woody spices and brioche, spiced biscuits and subtle roasted coffee notes - impressively complex. The phenolics register on the palate as a discreetly mineral, saline character, there's sorbet-like texture through the middle before finishing with comet-like line and length.” (Aug 2014)
