Dom Pérignon P2 vintage 1995 blanc 75 cl
THE 1995 HARVEST, The year was notable for its exceptional summer: a fairly overcast spring meant that the vines flowered late but quickly. The summer compensated for the spring, with a heat wave arriving at the end of June. For two months, there was hardly any rain, just a few isolated clouds and above-normal temperatures that seat a 30 year record. The harvest began on September 18 for the Chardonnay and on September 25 for the Pinot noir grapes. The brioche and honey tones quickly blend with fresh almond and apricot embellished by hints of smokiness.
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
Once the sensation of power and roundness has passed, you are struck by the tension that gradually imposes itself, persists and vibrates, pure, mineral and fruity. The characters of brioche and honey quickly blend with fresh almond and apricot. The whole is completed by smoky accents.
