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-braned in 2014 as “Plénitude”. Read more about the Plénitude concept here.

Weather: The 1996 season was full of contrasts: a capricious summer with wet periods not compensating for the earlier drought. However, the periods of high heat preceding the harvest led to exceptional maturity, marked by a rare balance of power and acidity. This vintage has all the inimitable traits of a great Dom Pérignon Rosé with all the light-heartedness, vivacity and vibrancy of the Pinot Noir grape matched with great Chardonnay balance.

News Article: Dom Pérignon Rosé P2 1996 placed third in our comprehensive rosé blind tasting in February 2017. Read the full write-up here.

Tasting Note: A really strong pink colour with hints of cherry and raspberry. Lots of summer fruits and just a dash of ripe red pepper on the nose. On the palate there is evolution from the original release of this vintage with lots berry fruit: raspberry, strawberry and cherry all prominent. The finish has a spicy undertone with just a hint of lemon and great refreshing acidity. The ageing potential of this champagne is amazing, it seems very young yet is already twenty years old!
