The uniqueness of Dom Pérignon vintages lies in the way they evolve - not steadily in a linear way but through successive windows of expression. These privileged points in time are called “Plénitudes” - captured moments when the wine sings higher and stronger. The year 1998 was marked by two unusual and opposing occurrences: the spectacular burning of the grapes caused by record high temperatures in August followed by exceptional rainfall in September. The First Plénitude of Dom Pérignon Vintage 1998 (released in 2005) was a model of balance. In its Second Plénitude, invigorated by the additional years in the cellars, Dom Pérignon P2 1998 transcends the potential of the vintage. The dark, mineral, iodine, spiced singularity of Dom Pérignon vibrates higher and clearer than ever. P2 is the Second Plénitude of Dom Pérignon Vintage, the result of 16 years of elaboration. The opposing and complementary elements of the assemblage resound for an increasingly sharp intensity. The energy of the wine is at its peak. ON THE 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. ON THE 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. 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.
