Country of Origin: Champagne, France
Variety: Blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay
Taste: The Dom Perignon P2 magnifies the most obvious qualities of wine caused by record high temperatures in August followed by exceptional rainfall. It exalts the freshness and duality of the 1998 vintage, the result of 16 years of elaboration. The flavour instantly unfurls leaving a bright, expressive, delicate aftertaste that is lively yet sensual, and still very fruit-forward. The nose and palate are strikingly similar, and the velvety mouth-feel becomes deeper and richer. The overall result displays intense, elegant, saline and slight liquorice notes.
Food Match: Ideal with rich, complete meals: fried artichokes, sea bass, peach salad and Kombu; grilled potato chips, milk foam and caviar.
