Food Pairing
Pairing caviar with Dom Pérignon is evident. The caviar underscores the precision, the depth, and the maturity of P2 1998's additional years of elaboration in the Dom Pérignon cellar. A substance that is both dark and luminous, black, it shines and becomes translucent. The caviar transfigures the energy of Dom Pérignon P2 1998

Nose
The wine has achieved an intense, full and radiant bouquet, with notes of honeysuckle, orange colored fruits, toasted almonds and hints of iodine sensations
Palate
The creamy chewiness characterizing the vintage is channeled in a direction that is edgy yet embracing, with a wave of aromatic persistence. Its finish – smoky, biting and full of energy – offers balance and harmony

Description

The Plénitude concept has been years in development at Dom Pérignon and they have identified the natural course of aging that Vintage Champagne takes. Rather than improving steadily as is the case with many wines, it seems to take 3 defined stages in its life. The first release (P1) comes approximately 8 years after the vintage and is the style that most are familiar with and is currently the 2004 vintage. The second stage (P2) takes roughly 15 years and really takes a profound leap to a new quality level where it will plateau for many years in terms of improvement. Finally the Third Plénitude (P3) will see the champagne aging another 20-30 years until it peaks with both previously falling under the Oenothèque banner.
