PLENITUDE 2: THE SECOND LIFE OF DOM PERIGNON
Plenitude 2 is the second life of Dom Perignon, patiently brought to a new elevation and set on a path to eternity.
For each vintage and from its inception, a limited number of bottles are set aside in the cellars, predestined for longer maturation. With this extra time, the inner activity in the bottle increases. The yeast transfers its energy to the wine... a mysterious transfer of life. After close to 15 years, expansion of energy reaches its peak and Dom Perignon rises to an apex of essential, radiant vitality in its state of Plenitude. Elevated to new heights, it unfurls across every dimension – wider, deeper, longer, more intense – and gifted further with an extended longevity.

THE 2004 HARVEST
With its remarkable ease and generosity, the 2004 winemaking year stands out in the history of Dom Perignon.
The vines developed with great regularity and without incident, resulting in substantial yields of large grapes.
While the weather was generally anything but extreme, the vines developed with great regularity and without incident. The dry heat of the final weeks really shaped the vintage. The harvest began on September 24th, providing grapes that were both in excellent health and superbly ripe.

TASTING NOTES

ON THE NOSE
The 2004 fruit remains discreet, yet more clearly defined in this second life of the Vintage. Citrusy notes of pink grapefruit and blood oranges gently cede to figs. The additional time on the lees elevates the minerality of the vintage with the sublime maturity that is Dom Perignon’s signature. Cocoa, mocha, roasted nuts, brioche and honey.

ON THE PALATE
The wine balances on the edge with immediacy and surprise, evolving between tension and weightlessness. It has an extreme, tactile precision, deep and sculptural. The sensations come together in a persistent and elegant finish, underlined by sappy, licorice notes.
About Dom Perignon
Dom Pérignon (1638–1715) was a monk and cellar master at the Benedictine abbey in Hautvillers. He pioneered a number of winemaking techniques around 1670--being the first to blend grapes in such a way as to improve the quality of wines, balance one element with another in order to make a better whole, and deal with a number of their imperfections; perfecting the art of producing clear white wines from black grapes by clever manipulation of the presses; enhancing the tendency of Champagne wines to retain their natural sugar in order to naturally induce secondary fermentation in the Spring; being a master at deciding when to bottle these wines in order to capture the bubble. He also introduced corks (instead of wood), which were fastened to bottles with hemp string soaked in oil in order to keep the wines fresh and sparkling, and used thicker glass in order to strengthen the bottles (which were prone to explode at that time).[2] The development of sparkling wines as the main style of production in Champagne occurred progressively in the 19th century, more than a century after Dom Pérignon's death.
