Dom Pérignon P2 vintage 2000 blanc 75 cl
PLENITUDE DEUXIEME, P2 2000. The year was characterized by challenging contrasts between cold and rainy periods, and warm and stormy weather. Summer was uncertain and often gloomy, the weather brightened up miraculously during the last few days of August, and the fine days continued right up until the end of the harvest. While the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2000, first presented in 2008, revealed a combination of freshness and ripeness, of effervescence and harmony, it now projects a new expression.
This Second Plenitude, P2 2000, draws from new energy, intensity, vitality and depth.

Dom Pérignon is Vintage only. Each Vintage wine is created from the best grapes grown in one single year. To reinvent itself by interpreting the unique character of the seasons. To dare to declare the Vintage only when the harvest meets its ideal. Such is the commitment of Dom Pérignon. Dom Pierre Pérignon took up his duty as cellarer at the Abbey of Hautvillers in 1668. For 47 years he continued to invent: improving the grapes’ quality with new viticulture techniques, blending different crus and grapes varieties to obtain the finest wines, gentle and fractional pressing to obtain white wines from black grapes, all those innovations became the fundamental rules of the “method champenoise”.
CHardonnay & Pinot noir
Bright and mineral-driven, the nose has background notes of toasted sourdough. A perfect tart balance, with flavours of pastry and zesty lemon and a lingering finish.
Pan-seared foie gras served with a spiced citrus salad will work well. To match this champagne’s high minerality, pair it with a grilled steak topped with ceps or a black truffle sauce.
