Dom Perignon P2 1998

DOMP200
The Dom Perignon brand is named after the blind Benedictine monk, Dom Perignon, who was believed to have invented the Champagne process at the Abbey of Hautvillers in France in the early 1700's. Since debunked by history, the brand is now owned by Moet et Chandon and continues to evoke the epitome of fine, deluxe vintage wines and remains sought after for its evocative label and bottle design as well as its rich complex flavours.

Tasting Notes

After a short breathing period, the nose has an intense, full and radiant bouquet, with notes of honeysuckle, orange coloured fruits, toasted almonds and hints of iodine sensations. The creamy chewiness characterizing the vintage is channelled in a direction that is edgy yet embracing, with a wave of aromatic persistence. The finish smoky, biting and full of energy – offers balances and harmony.

Food Matches

Our favourite is with smoked salmon blini's or oysters, but also try it with cold poached fish such as salmon, or asian cuisine.
