Dom Pérignon Plénitude 2 Vintage 2004 is the second life of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004. All Dom Pérignon champagnes are aged for a minimum of eight years before release. Each year, a small quantity of wine is held back for even longer ageing. The additional time spent in the cellars produces a more complex, deeper and concentrated champagne that has been called Plénitude 2. This second release of the 2004 vintage is similar in character and structure to the first, which was released back in 2013. However, it has been magnified in almost every respect. It's wider, deeper, longer and more intense.
Aroma: The 2004 fruit remains discreet in this second plenitude of the Vintage, though it is more clearly defined. Citrusy notes of pink grapefruit and blood oranges gently cede to hints of fig. The additional time on the lees elevates the minerality of the vintage with the sublime maturity that is Dom Pérignon’s signature.
Palate: Plénitude 2, 2004, has notes of Cocoa, mocha, roasted nuts, brioche and honey. The wine balances on the edge with immediacy and surprise, evolving between tension and weightlessness. It has an extreme, tactile precision.
Finish: Persistent and elegant finish, underlined by sappy and licorice notes.
Season 2004: A winemaking year that stands out in the history of Dom Pérignon. The year unfolded in a virtually ideal scenario. Each season moved to the next with ease and flow, without disturbance or excess. A cool August was followed by a few weeks of dry heat that has made the vintage special. The harvest began on September 24th, that gracefully provided grapes that were perfectly ripe.
Food pairing: Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004 Plénitude 2 offers attractive pairing possibilities, opening new concepts and styles. The vibrant characteristics of the wine are revealed perfectly by pairing with lobster, molé verde and cardamom. The combination of veal, dashi broth and spirulina will pair brilliantly. While pigeon, pistachio and kalamanci baklava will highlight its lightness. The tactile aspect of the wine is best revealed with a green tomato sorbet that will magnify its silky, creamy character. The wine's balanced tension can be best explored combining with roasted pineapple, candied citrus peel and aniseed.
The bottle comes presented in a solid black wood Dom Perignon Plenitude branded box, with the box clothed in a black, silky smooth cloth pouch.
