Champagne Dom Pérignon
Plénitude 2 Vintage 2003

The Dom Pérignon Vintage 2003 Plénitude 2 is  intense, vibrant and precise. The exceptional feature of Vintages Dom Pérignon is their evolution, not based on a linear process, but on specific expressive steps. These periods are called Plénitudes, priviledged moments where the wines vibrates more intensely.

P2 is the name of Deuxième Plénitude by Dom Pérignon, the result of 16 years of development. The energy reaches its peak. Thanks to its dark notes, mineral, spicy and iodized, the uniqueness of Dom Pérignon is clearer and more intense than ever.

Part of the bottles of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2003 rests on its yeasts in the cave, with cork cap (bouchon liège), for 13 years, 8 years longer than the classical Vintage Dom Pérignon

The 2003 vintage was characterised by a particularly harsh and dry initial winter and an early April that brought heavy frosts, causing considerable losses. Moving from one extreme to the other, temperatures began to rise at the end of May, reaching exceptional peaks: a heatwave that, for the Champagne region, represented the hottest summer in fifty-three years and the driest of the decade. With ripening accelerated by the heatwave and low yields, the harvest surprisingly began on 21 August. It was the earliest harvest in the Champagne region since 1822, with healthy, ripe grapes. The very contrasting weather conditions throughout the year produced fruit of extraordinary richness and concentration, reminiscent of the legendary vintages of 1947, 1959 and 1976.

The Champagne Dom Pérignon Vintage 2003 Plénitude 2 reveals its bouquet in a spiral on the nose. From the floral softness of the lime a grey minerality emerges, with hints of toast and ash, so characteristic of Dom Pérignon. Aromas of dried fruit - especially apricot - then appear, followed by candied fruit - raspberry and fig. Suddenly, the freshness of fragrant verbena, white pepper and rosemary come up for an instant, before sinking into the darkness of spices and liquorice root.

A physical wine on the palate. It beckons and attracts, more tactile and vibrant than aromatic. Like a wave, it builds on the rhythm and then shatters: first it unfolds, then it envelops - generous and structured - and finally it retreats into a deep and obscure verticality, slowly leaning towards a savoury and iodine sensation.

Winemaker

Champagne Dom Pérignon

Dom Pérignon has had a priviledge position in the field of Champagne since it was born in 1936. Its origins are older because Dom Pérignon is part of Moët & Chandon (founded in 1743). While Moët & Chandon is involved in a good quality and large quantity Champagne production, Dom Pérignon focuses on absolute quality. Its long experience over centuries is used to produce a top quality Champagne, we all know well. Dom Pérignon is avibrant tribute to Dom Pierre Pérignon, spiritual father of Champagne. It is a miracle of assemblage and refinance with a misterious harmony, which is always new, the perfect meeting between the two classical variety Dom Pérignon, namely Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Since 1990 Richard Geoffroy has been Chef de Cave and father of the Vintages Dom Pérignon and the one embodying the spirit of Dom Pierre PérignonDom Pérignon only creates Vintage Champagnes, from the best selected grapes from a single year of vintage. It never ends its innovating experience and always offers the best of the vintage. It refuses compromises and does not produce its Vintages when the vintage is not at its best- After a 8-year vinification, the wine reaches a perfect balance, the most beautiful product of the Maison: this is Dom Pérignon VintageP2 is Deuxième Plénitude by Dom Pérignon, the result of a 16-year process of elaboration. All assemblage ingredients are well mixed and grant the Vintage a stronger intensity, liveliness and precision: Champagne energy at its best! P3 is Troisième Plénitude by Dom Pérignon, the result of a 25-year process of elaboration. The Champagne gains an even more essential structure, enriched by a slow and deep integration. This is a sublime wine, more complex than ever. The Troisième Plénitude is Dom Pérignon's soul.
