Dom Pérignon, P2, 1996

RRP £400

This P2 feels astonishingly youthful, showing little sign of evolution or softening. There is plenty of fine, pure fruit but the searing acidity takes the lead role, bringing aggression but also salinity and drive. Needs time to show its complexities. Disgorged 2008.
