Dom Pérignon Plénitude 2 - P2 1993 Champagne

More vintages: 1995, 1998The 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 2006 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 ageing another 20-30 years until it peaks with both previously falling under the Oenothèque banner.

As a first release back in the year 2000 Dom Pérignon 1993 was a youthful and vibrant vintage with subtle hints of lemon and lime. After more time on the lees, some 15 years, in the famous Cellars in Épernay, the purpose of which is perfectly summed up by the winemaker himself: "For the Second Plénitude, we're looking for the peak of energy, intensity and vibrancy, showing the wine in high-definition," Richard Geoffroy, Chef de Cave, Dom Pérignon. In English, this means with more time on the lees the fruit comes more forward and other flavours add to an already complex champagne.

During 1993 there was a summer of great length a combination of dry and warm conditions. The second release of all Dom Pérignon vintages since 2005 now takes the name of P2 or 'Plenitude 2' whereas previously it was named Oenotheque.

This champagne has hints of dried herbs candied grapefruit and lemon with hints of spice like cinnamon and as you get into it further notes of freshly cooked biscuits and raisin. This is a dense wine with an abundance of flavour and development. Its finesse draws out for some time with a long lingering finish full of fresh fruits and nice balanced acidity. Still no rush to drink this champagne, if stored correctly at a constant temperature of 12 degrees of less it will continue to develop for many years to come

This Champagne is presented in a really high quality metal finished Dom Pérignon P2 gift box - An exceptionally rare Champagne and we are one of just a handful of retailers lucky enough to get stock of this late release.

“Chef de cave, Richard Geoffroy: 'A vintage characterised by its precocity. The early bud-break and a warm and stormy spring led to rapid and full flowering in the first fortnight of June. Despite very average temperatures, the summer was remarkable both for its amount of sunshine and the drought which lasted until the harvest began (10 September).' Disgorged in 2006.
Quite dark gold. Broad and something of an oak-aged 1990s Meursault (not the tension of a 2010s Meursault) about it. Some sweetness on the front palate. Creamy texture. Waves on the palate. Lots of fun. Nourishment. Arguably from a slightly different era.
Drink 2006-2020”

“Youthful colour yet comes with an age-complexed but reserved nose. Tight on the refined palate, layer upon layer of aromas. Fine, lingering aftertaste. Not one of the most impressive or expressive vintages but remains youthful and seems to age slowly and steadily.”
