Champagne Dom Perignon Overview
+
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-braned in 2014 as “Plénitude”. Read more about the Plénitude concept here.

Weather: The 1995 harvest was a large crop and shared similar characteristics with the renowned 1998. Following four consecutive years of tough growing conditions, 1995 came as a huge relief to the region - the first universally declared vintage since 1990. The summer was mainly hot, with some showers a few weeks before the harvest. As a first release back in 2002, Dom Pérignon 1995 (P1) had such great depth and balance with incredibly ripe fruits. Now, over twenty years since bottling, the second release 1995 P2 has flavours of incredibly complex, rich and concentrated fruits.

“We had no problem polishing off two bottles of the sublime 1995 Dom Pérignon Oenothèque to start. What a wine! Our bottles were superb; clean, precise and intensely aromatic, with endless layers of fruit and phenomenal balance.”

“Mid pale gold. Quite a ripe nose. Big and bold, even toasty. Lively toasted almonds. A little dry on the finish. Some dried apricots. Exuberant, not quite as long as 1996 and 1998. Lots of fun but less complete and complex than some. ”
