    P2 is the new label for Dom P̩rignon's Oenotheque wines. These wines have undergone much longer lees aging than their vintage equivalents, which results in additional freshness and complexity. P2 is shorthand for 'second plenitude', reflecting the house philosophy that champagne experiences three different but equally wonderful stages in aging, captured in three different Dom P̩rignon releases: the 'regular' vintage wines, which have been aged on the lees for 7-8 years before disgorgement; the P2 wines which see 12-14 years on the lees; and finally the even rarer P3 wines, which undergo more than 20 years lees aging.

    Wine Spectator:  "Offers precision and finely detailed form, powered by an expansive palate of flavor. The layers of ripe crushed blackberry and glazed apricot fruit complement the saline-tinged minerality and oyster shell notes, graced by hints of pastry, honeycomb and exotic spice. Mouthwatering and persistent on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2030." Dec 2014

    Winery:
    "P2 is the Second Plenitude of Dom Perignon, the result of 16 years of elaboration.  Both the complementary and contrasting elements that comprise the 'assemblage' resonate with each other for enhanced intensity, vibrancy and precision.  The energy of the wine is at its peak.

    On the nose:  After a short breathing period, the wine has an intense, full and radiant bouquet, with notes of honeysuckle, orange colored fruits, toasted almonds and hints of iodine sensations.  On the palate:  The creamy chewiness characterizing the vintage is channeled in a direction that is edgy yet embracing, with a wave of aromatic persistence.  The finish - smoky, biting and full of energy - offers balance and harmony."
