“Time is at the heart of the Dom Pérignon equation". It is thanks to Richard Geoffroy, the former Cellar Master of the House, an individual who truly embodied the heart and soul of Dom Pérignon for 28 years, that the concept of "Plenitude" was born. The expression of a vintage is not fixed in time. Instead, it evolves in stages. The P2 or Second Plenitude offers a brand new expression of a single Vintage Champagne after more than 15 years in the making.
