Champagne Dom Perignon Overview
+
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 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.

Dom Pérignon Rosé 1995 was originally released after 8 years on the lees and had very expressive fruits back then. Dom Perignon Rosé P2 1995 is softer and creamier than the first release and this combines to create an exceptional champagne that is bursting with flavours. After now some 16 years on the lees 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. To us we see the extra lees aging enhancing the champagne as the red berry fruits have become more prominent and delicious and further layers of complexity come from the yeasty character. All in all this is a power rose that is still young.

The 1995 harvest was a large crop and shared similar characteristics with the renowned 1998. After a previous four years of tough growing conditions, 1995 came as a relief as the first universally declared vintage since 1990. The summer was mainly hot, with some showers a few weeks before the harvest, a vintage with great potential for ageing as shown in this Dom Pérignon Rosé 1995 P2.

On the nose, this is fruity and complex with hints of red berries and this leads to a palate of cranberry, mint and that hint of cinnamon spice. The flavours linger long after the finish and this added time on the lees has created a superb rosé that is balanced beautifully and still youthful even at twenty years of age, a hall mark of P2.

Dom Pérignon Rosé P2 1995 is presented in a superb metal box with a "wave like" texture. Released in 2016 this Dom Pérignon is very scarce.

“Vibrant gold colour with russet twinkles. Everything here speaks of a warm summer, gaining perfectly ripe grapes (especially the Chardonnay). Scents of white flowers and citrus. The mousse in the mouth suggests less pressure than usual, making it taste more like a great white wine than a Champagne. Superb quality of fruit and potential vinosity, with quite a lot in reserve for another decade +. Not for everyone, but for those who like white Burgundy, this is an alternative jewel for roast turbot with girolles, or milk-fed veal.

“There is a timeless feel to this beauty, which is unmistakeably Dom Pérignon in its pristinely pure, smoky mineral character. Beautiful Pinot aromas, underwood, cherry, spice and chocolate. Tight and first in the glass but builds up over time into an excuisitely refined yet endlessly layered whole. Seamless is the right word for this wine that has rested on its yeast lees for over 15 years bringing such harmony to it. Velvet-smooth, linear palate full of energy. Positively vinous, intense and lingering. Great exuberance of fruit. Even if the 1995 was a rich vintage, its Dom Pérignon Rosé P2 is a particularly elegant wine, which will go on and on.”

“This has just been released, in tiny quantities like all P2 rosés – for the moment anyway. Although I suppose this could change if the house decides to increase the production of Dom Pérignon rosé.
The colour is pale rose pink with just a hint of blue – in fact it almost looks younger than the 2004 first release tasted alongside it. Still reasonably vigorous bead. Haunting, warm nose - super-complex with rose petals and a hint of dill pickle - that gives way to a rather coy, super-fruity palate that ends bone dry. Smells of warm vegetables - tomatoes?! Masses of appetising development. Great, throat-warming finish. Delicate. Lacy texture. Very fine, though so delicate that it would need careful food matching. Very pretty and complex with strawberry notes. Textured and intellectual.”

“The just-released 1995 Dom Pérignon Rosé P2 is stunning. Young, delicate and vibrant in the glass, the 1995 has it all; expressive aromatics, crystalline fruit and fabulous overall balance. Cranberry, mint, hard candy, cinnamon and dried rose petals are laced into the super-expressive finish. The 1995 P2 is sweet and layered, but with lovely veins of chalky minerality that give the wine its sense of energy. A delicate, floral finish rounds things out nicely.”
