Dom Perignon P2 Rose

Only 7 bottle available
1995 Dom Perignon P2 ROSE....$629.99 

We are the lowest price in the country!
The P2 non-rose Brut we had in the fall was rare, the rose is even more rare!
Yes, it has spent 18 years on the lees before bottling  
Packaged in a brushed aluminum box.   
The just-released 1995 Dom Pérignon Rosé P2 is stunning. Young, delicate and vibrant in the glass, the 1995 has it all; expressive aromatics, crystalline fruit and fabulous overall balance. Cranberry, mint, hard candy, cinnamon and dried rose petals are laced into the super-expressive finish. The 1995 P2 is sweet and layered, but with lovely veins of chalky minerality that give the wine its sense of energy. A delicate, floral finish rounds things out nicely.
Rated 95/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Here are some highlights....

After frequent taste tests and analysis of older vintages held in the company’s library, going back to the very first one (1921), the current Chef du Cave since 1990, Richard Geoffrey, and his predecessors and colleagues, have made an interesting discovery. As it rest on the lees in the cellar, it does not improve steadily as might institutively be expected and as many wines do. Instead it remains relatively flat for years at a time and then when nature has had her ways, makes a quantum leap to a new quality plateau, where it again remains flat in terms of improvement for many years. Internally, the staff at Dom Perignon refers to these leaps as “plentitudes,” and have concluded that they occur just three times. The first plentitude takes about 7-9 years and results in the Dom Perignon most of the world knows, having made its first big improvement. The second happens after another 10 years or so, the third in another 10 years or so (these times are very subject to nature). After the third, there are no more leaps but rather a slow and steady improvement, at least up to the nearly 100 year point they are still trying. Dom Perignon that is not resting on its lees never experiences the second or third plentitude.
