Dom Perignon P2 2000 Vintage
Dom Perignon P2 Plenitude 2000 is the second release of the 2000 vintage and as such is the second look at the champagnes evolution. Taught and very appealing acid structure and drive, depth and all round "alive" representation of the 2000 champagne vintage now 18 years young..
Initially delivering some restrained toast and grilled nuts it opens into lovely layers of citrus and floral notes. Taught palate weight unravels layers of finger Limes, and light smoke opening into creamy ripe stonefruits, berry flavours and energetic albeit slightly salty salinity. Great persistence and length and all round youthfull example drinking wonderfully well now. Time is truly of the essence.
Dosage is down also in P2 to around 4g/l which also indicates its extended life on lees has altered its final P2 destination to this very exciting point. P2 Delivers a style not reliant on its initial P1 release dosage (8-9g/l) to instill balance, body and flavour and length. It is deeply layered and exciting "young"example drinking beautifully NOW!
