Offers precision and finely detailed form, powered by an expansive palate of flavor. The layers of ripe crushed blackberry and glazed apricot fruit complement the saline-tinged minerality and oyster shell notes, graced by hints of pastry, honeycomb and exotic spice. Mouthwatering and persistent on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2030. –AN

A P2 release indicating it has been matured to the 2nd Plenitude, the middle stage of Dom Perignon's three-phase life as defined by Richard Geoffroy. This is a wine with some real tension between complexity and freshness that makes for incredibly engaging drinking. The nose offers up a little white peppery edge from the pinot; oyster shell saline freshness, red florals, sweet smelling woody spices and brioche, spiced biscuits and subtle roasted coffee notes - impressively complex. The phenolics register on the palate as a discreetly mineral, saline character, there's sorbet-like texture through the middle before finishing with comet-like line and length. Drink now. - NS

From a late harvest saved by fine fall weather, this 1998 is part of a new program at Dom Pérignon, released after extended aging on the lees, disgorged when Richard Geoffroy considers the wine to be reaching its second peak of development—at least 12 years on the lees, or, in the case of this wine, 13. This has aged into a dynamic and sexy wine, layering floral intensity, silken textures and bass notes of fresh, nutty, loquat-like flavors into a finish with tremendous drive. It’s open and packed with energy.

Decadent and rich DP with so much pie crust, white truffle and dried apple and pineapple character. Limestone too. Full body, layered and flavorful. Lovely texture of fine bubbles. Very rich at the end but then turns... Decadent and rich DP with so much pie crust, white truffle and dried apple and pineapple character. Limestone too. Full body, layered and flavorful. Lovely texture of fine bubbles. Very rich at the end but then turns fresh and vibrant. Contrast now between ripe fruit and fresh acidity. Perfect now. - Nick Stock

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, July 2015
The 1998 Dom Pérignon P2 is open and beautifully expressive today. Unusually open for a young P2, the 1998 drinks well upon release, especially compared to the 1996, which was virtually unapproachable for the first few... The 1998 Dom Pérignon P2 is open and beautifully expressive today. Unusually open for a young P2, the 1998 drinks well upon release, especially compared to the 1996, which was virtually unapproachable for the first few years after release. That is not at all the case with the 1998, which is quite open at this stage. Hints of apricot, almond, white flowers and chamomile add texture on the fleshy, resonant finish. The added time on the lees has given the P2 an added dimension of texture.

Distinct notes of petrol sit atop the tight, reserved and yeasty aromas of green apple, citrus peel, white flowers and a hint of dried orange peel. There is excellent richness to the toasty and again heavily yeast-suffused flavors that at once possess power and refinement, all wrapped in a driving and tight finish that is supported by a moderately fine mousse. This is clearly still very young and while it could certainly be enjoyed now, I found it to be sufficiently tightly wound that I would advise holding it for at least another 3 to 5 years first.

Dom Perignon

Since 1743 when it was founded, Moet & Chandon has been passing down unequaled winemaking savoir-faire and an innovative and pioneering spirit from generation to generation. Founder Claude Moet was the first to embody these values when he made his Champagne the most sought-after in Europe. With his grandson, Jean Remy Moët, a pioneering and visionary mind, Moet & Chandon became a major international champagne brand. This saga quickly transformed the family House into a worldwide symbol of success.

The 1,190 hectares of rich limestone soil, 50% of which is classed as Grand Cru and 25% Premier Cru, make up the largest vineyard area in Champagne. Underground, the Moet & Chandon cellars are the most extensive in the region. Extending more than 28 kilometers, they form a subterranean labyrinth where the wine metamorphoses under optimum conditions of humidity and temperature.

Moet & Chandon is part of the luxury brands group LVMH, whose other prestigious wine holdings include Chateau d’Yquem, Cheval Blanc, Cloudy Bay, Krug, and Newton Vineyard, to name a few.
