What to expect


"Through a hue of bright, medium-straw, the youthful luminescence of lemon zest and white fruits hold their radiance, accented seamlessly with gun int reduction and the billowing maturity of Parisienne baguette, toasted brioche, dried fig, nougat and roasted hazelnuts. Its creamy, silky, luscious mouthfeel and notes of vanilla and crème brûlée are gloriously heightened, culminating in a finish softly accented by tertiary, smoky, iodine nuances. Its tanginess integrates as its creaminess blossoms, yet it upholds just the right acid tension and softly textural grip on a finish of marvellous line and length. In sheer line and persistence, this is a Dom Pérignon of the highest order."

About the house 

About the house 


Food Suggestion 

This iconic house posses the name of the man who is believed to be the god father of Champagne. Lead by enigmatic winemaker Richard Geoffroy, he has continued to prove that he is a force to be reckoned with and has been turning out great vintages and even far more superlative second release cuvees in the P2 range.  Geoffroy believes that champagnes age in plenitudes. This super talented winemaker has a theory that champagnes in the wine-makers cellars head off on a period of change and development then reach a plateau before heading off on another journey of increased complexity and development. As such, great vintages of Dom Perignon are held back in the cellar with the yeast inside the bottle to allow the wine to take on another stratosphere of complexity and depth. Enter P2 - a wine that must be enjoyed at least once in your lifetime and more if you can justify it!   

Food Suggestion 


We would first recommend having this wine on its own without cuisine. It is a fascinating wine of considerable depth, layers and complexity. Please do not serve this wine in a narrow flute, it must be in an Emperor Champagne Tulip or a white wine glass. After you have slowly enjoyed a glass you could add cuisine to the experience.
