Description & Technical Information
-
The Plénitude (originally Oenothèque) concept has been years in development at Dom Pérignon. After studying the natural course of ageing that vintage champagne seems to undertake, the winemaking team found that, rather than improving steadily and linearly (as is the case with many wines), it develops and matures through three defined stages in its life.

The first release (P1) comes approximately 8 years after the harvest and is the style that most consumers are familiar with. The second stage (P2) takes roughly 15 years, during which time the cuvée 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 reaches its ultimate peak. Initially these mature vintages were made available under limited release called “Oenothèque” but were re-branded in 2014 as “Plénitude”. Read more about the Plénitude concept here.

Weather: The 1993 season saw a summer of great length and a difficult combination of dry and warm conditions. As a first release back in 2000, Dom Pérignon 1993 (P1) was a youthful and vibrant vintage with subtle hints of lemon and lime. After an additional fifteen years on the lees in Dom Pérignon's famous cellars in Épernay, the fruit has come confidently forward, adding new layers of development and a delightfully mature character to an already complex champagne.

Tasting Note: Hints of dried herbs, candied grapefruit and lemon on the nose. Spicy cinnamon notes show through on the palate, complimented by flavours of freshly cooked biscuits and raisin. This is a dense champagne with an abundance of flavour and development. Its finesse draws out for some time with a long lingering finish full of fresh fruits and nicely balanced acidity. There is still no rush to drink this champagne - if stored correctly it will continue to develop for many years to come.

Dom Pérignon Plénitude 2 - P2 1993 is presented in a high-quality metalled Dom Pérignon gift box (as shown in the bottom left picture). This is an exceptionally rare champagne and The Finest Bubble are one of just a handful of retailers lucky enough to secure stock of this late-release cuvée.

Expert Reviews
18.5/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“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.”
