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.

“Plénitude 2 reveals Dom Pérignon Vintage 2002 in a new light, bringing the wine a radiant golden vibrancy. The natural opulence of the grapes harvested in 2002 is transformed by the additional maturation time, tending to the ethereal." Vincent Chaperon - Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave

Weather: The 2002 vintage shaped up ideally over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. The vines were in good health and the dehydration of the grape berries helped them reach new heights of ripeness. The 2002 vintage was first released as the 'standard' Dom Pérignon (P1) labelling back in 2011. The second release, Plénitude 2, was then launched in 2019 after an additional eight years of ageing.
