1998 Dom Perignon Oenotheque P2 image

97 Points - James Suckling



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. (8/ 2014)



95 points Antonio Galloni



The 1998 Dom Pérignon P-2 (formerly Oenothèque) is quite reticent today. What else is new? These second -plenitude wines are often very tight when they are first released, which is very much the case here. Still, it is quite evident the 1998 is a bit more tender and pliant than the 1996. Today, the 1998 still hasn't turned the corner, but it is quite pretty and expressive. This is a terrific offering. (5/ 2014)
