Dom Pérignon P2 Vintage 1999 blanc 75 cl
THE 1999 HARVEST, The rainfall during harvesting (14 September), did not affect a healthy and abundant crop, with an exceptionally powerful and well-rounded character. The tasting begins with a wine that breathes and comes alive in a light, playful spiral, with touches of angelica, coconut, cinnamon, cocoa and tobacco.
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
The tasting begins with a wine that breathes and comes alive in a light, playful spiral, with touches of angelica, coconut, cinnamon, cocoa and tobacco. In the mouth, the wine reaches a state of complex fullness: earthy, smoky and pearly, underscored by the vibrant warmth of peppery spice. The sensation of intensity develops and melts into a deep, rounded heart, with a fruity, exotic maturity and a slight touch of aniseed. This sensation, almost unsettling, is even more pronounced in the finish, while the notes of spice, still present, remain discreet, with toasted and iodine flavors.
