Review: Dom Perignon Plenitude 2 (P2) 2002

Released in 2017, Dom Perignon’s 2nd expression of the vintage 2002 is today showing very well and is perfect for that special occasion.   Tasted recently on three separate occasions this champagne is at a beautiful window.  Youthful, fresh yet displaying complexity, sophistication and depth, aromas of lemon, hazelnuts, stone fruit and brioche greet you on the nose.  The palate has such lively acidity, great balance and finishes with a rich luxurious mouthfeel.  The P2 2002 can age for many more years but it is also extremely beguiling now.
